    compound cutting: Think of making a chess piece. Draw one view of it on a block of wood. Then a side view on the side of that block of wood. Cut out the front side on the lines. Tape the pieces back together, cut on the lines on the side view and then remove the outside pieces of scrap. What is left in the center is the desired shape.

      Paul if you want to learn about compound cutting on the scroll saw, then jump right in.
      Jim's explanation is right on, and if you visit this link put out by Diana Thompson (the queen of compound cutting in my opinion) you will get a free pattern to try it out, along with a mini tutorial. Have fun. Scroll Saw Patterns by Diana Thompson at Scroll Saw Inspirations

          Diana Thompson did a great job of explaining.
          She is talking about the blade not cutting straight. Most blades have a burr on the right side, what makes the blade cut to the right. You have to move the wood some degree to the right to stay on the line. You no not need a blades with reverse teeth, The pieces what have fuzz on it are trow away pieces. Like she said, she is using a # 5 blade. She also sometimes uses a # 7. Both are Polar blades. When cutting the thick side, make sure you have good speed and push very, very slow into the blade, so that the blade will not bend and starting cutting with a bevel.

              My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

              Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

              My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
