    I finally got to saw again this weekend. I had to move everything out of the house to a storage building. It does not have cooling so when the weather is 100 - 115 degrees I stay in the air conditioned house.

    This is one of mine and I think for a first try it came out nice. I have to work on my drill holes. Has anyone tried to fill them after cutting the pattern out?

    Hope you like it. I would really like your feedback.

    That is nice. For those drill holes, here are 2 options.
    1. Use a smaller drill bit for your entry holes.
    2. try drilling part way down the vein and you can feather the sides out so the hole is not so noticeable.

    Hope that helps.

      Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

      Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

      Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
      Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
