  • 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.

              Like I taught my children "it is more blessed to give than to receive,and is also more fun"
              Thanks, to all, for your kind words.

                    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
