  • Scroll Saw Baskets

    Here is a basket I made from Popular. It is made from a 12" x 12" x 3/4" board. I rounded the top on the router table before cutting it out. It is 8" tall x 10" in diameter. Enjoy

    It's beautiful, James. Simply beautiful.

    The repeated regularity of the cuts is testimony to the enormous skill you clearly have.

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

      it looks fantastic. Let me show my ignorance here


      it looks fantastic. Let me show my ignorance here, what kind of tool do you use to round the upper border?

        Scroll Saw Baskets

        Thank you Gill and Pedro. I enlarged this pattern by about 133%. I really am just a beginner scroll saw person. I don't do this full time, maybe about 3 or 4 hours a week every few weeks. I have a RBI 26 Hawk saw with the foot control and a round maginifying lighted glass. Pedro, I use a router table with a roundover bit. I tried to send you about 12 pictures of the Dome clock construction and a side view of the clock but the e-mail was refused due to a incorrect address. Give me a correct address and you can use the pictures in your site like you wanted.

              Really nice work!
              I see that you made good use of the beauty of poplar - I think it is an under-appreciated wood.
              What sort of finish did you use?

                Thanks everyone, Sandy the finish is clear gloss polyurathane in a spray can. The same you can buy at Walt Mart or Home Depot.

                  James, that is just beautifull. Congrats on job well done.
                  Pedro's email address is: [email protected] He just told me that he will try to make some patterns for the design contest.

                    I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

                    He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

                    Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                    I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                    I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                    They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                    The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
