  • First Project

    As first timer to scroll sawing, I tried this silhouette, sorry I'm not real good at photographing yet.

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your post/request/question.

                      I started cutting the same items. After a while I had a stack of about 100 and sold them for 5.00 each. Used the money to buy a quality JDS air cleaner, a move I never regretted.

                      Keep up the good work.

                        Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                        We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.
