  • A different use for scroll saw

    Our local wood workers club makes these, each year, for the local Ronald McDonald house. They have local artists decorate them and then they sell them at their charity, fund raising, auction. I also made a toy box for them. Last year the toy box brought $800 at auction. Table is 23" tall and the stools are 8" tall. All made of 3/4" Baltic birch plywood. I cut the table and chair sides with my scroll saw.

            Very nice, Jim! Got any shots of them after the artists decorate them? And I'd love to see a pic of the $800 toybox. Sounds like a very special one.

                  My hat's off to you, Jim. Very nice work for a very worthy cause.

                    You and yours deserve to have extra blessings for this. They look great as they are hope the artists didn't detract from your work.

                      The whole set is very cool Jim. Nice to other things that the saw can be used for, and donating them makes em even cooler.

                        Here is a photo of the toy box I made for them last year.It measures 24" long. The one this year I made 16% larger and flat ,instead of raised panels. I do not have a photo of now they decorated them.

                          Love the table I can only imagine what it would bring in if you built a box under the lid and were able to open the top for storage.Jerry

                            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...

                            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
