  • Starting First scroll saw portrait tomorrow morning

    I just got hold of a copy of Scroll Saw Portraits by "Gary Browning" and will be attempting my first project tomorrow morning.I am going to try the eagle on page 64 (if you have the book)

    I will post my efforts hopefully tomorrow night

    any tips or advice that may help me would be appreciated. also I was just wondering how many of you do your portraits by hand fretsaw? this must be easier than powered fretsaw/scrollsaw?

    It will also be first time using spiral blades as that is what the author recomends or says he uses so hopefully that will turn out ok...!

    Regards

                          You've made a nice start to this craft . Later, you'll be pleased to have taken a photo as a standard to measure your progress against.

                            You are off the starting line now. You also have a very fast start. Just remember, there is no finish line.

                                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.

                                He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
