  • First few things...

    Hello, new to scrolling but this is a blast, here's a few pictures of a few things I have been practicing with..
    first_cut.jpg
    Bare with me as I try to get this picture thing worked out practice.jpg
    live.jpg.
    Had to try the live to learn again.
    The A is the first thing I cut with the dewalt.jpg
    Hope to spend some time tonight messing with some letters, then some more time cutting some. Fun stuff for sure. Any suggestions are welcome I am thick skinned and do not mind takin notes.

    Looks like you did just fine with the Live to Learn and the letter 'A'.
    You have more patience than I do also. My first cutting ever on a scroll saw was
    Judy Gale Robert's Intarsia Collie Pattern! No time for practice first! LOL
    Just thought I'd mention that using the appropriate sized blade for the material you
    are cutting and experimenting with various speeds to match your cutting style are
    very helpful in getting good results. Looking forward to seeing more!
    God Bless! Spirithorse

      You live to learn, that's great! Thanks for sharing your first works, make sure you date them and keep them, and in a few months when you'll look back at it you'll see how you improved your skills!

            Welcome..
            It looks like you're off to a flying start...Very well done...!!
            Be sure to put the date on the back of your letter A so that you can remember just when it all started...

                      well done very good start, when cutting word art out of ply it's hard to see any voids in the wood so sometimes they do break been there try using solid wood for those types of projects again very good start.Jerry

                          Welcome, you are off to a great start. It's not only a good idea to date the items but also make a photo and start you a photo album. It will be good to look back at later.

                            Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
