  • New to this - Is this piece made using scroll saw

    I really love the piece of work (photo attached) and would like to make it myself.

    I am wondering if the piece (the size would be about 3 feet x 2 feet) is made using scroll saw. If not, what technique you suggest?

    Thanks in advance.

    imho it looks like the silouett cutouts from places like or

    if the size is 2-3 foot. the material appears to be a smooth surface like mdo plywood or temper board/masonite then painted / airbrushed

    cut out with jigsaw probobally becuse the throught of most scroll saws are only 16-18"

    painting looks to be airbrushed in this photo and appears its sealed with thick poly or something like that

    hope i helped some.

      Like it was mentioned it looks that piece was cut from a smoothe material but the thickness is hard to determine from the photo. As far as your question was it cut with a scrollsaw is also hard to say. It was done from one of 3 different methods because of the fret work which is not that involved so this makes it possible to use a jig saw or sometimes called a sabre saw., could have been cut with a hand fret saw sometimes called a coping saw, and final way would be with a scroll saw using spiral blades because you cannot spin 3 feet of material on anysaw. There are ways to do this but alot extra work involved. The work is in the painting that is for sure. If I were to guess I would say a jig saw was used. You can use any of the 3 methods I mentioned and hope to see pictures if you decide to give it a go.

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
