  • How do you use woodburning with scrolling?

    I just got a wood burning tool to go with my growing arsenal of items to make scroll saw projects. For those of you who use this tool, I'm just wondering what kind of projects you've used it for?

    Check out Issue 20--It was our special woodburning issue. It gives all kinds of ideas on how to embellish your scrolled work with a woodburner.

          harrisg, I have used the wood burner on pictures that I thought cutting the lines would weaken the wood too much. Such as, shingles on a roof or wood siding on a barn. Just single lines or some would call it veining. I think it looks better than cutting the lines, depends on the picture. Mick

            Good point Mick,
            I did that for the Moose Woodiimal that was in the Holiday issue...I wasn't comfortable cutting the facial features, so I burned them.

                Just Wondering...

                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
