  • 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.

      it looks fantastic. Let me show my ignorance here

      Hi,

      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.

              James,
              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.

                    Welcome Ian from Reno Nevada! Glad to have you aboard. Some saws can be frustrating, and others we love. Lots of help available here.

                    $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.

                    After cleaning the wheel and going through the drawers he found all the attachments/tools that came with the grinder. He priced everything and it was $500 plus. A member was selling the tools tor the wife of a member whose husband died last year. You think SLRA is picky with measuring, you should see...

                    Yes, there is a market for the original. I think there are a couple other FL scrollers on this site. There are also a few on the Scrollsaw Village site. I would try scroll saw sites before I attempt Facebook Market Place or Craigslist....
