    Hi Steve, That is what got me started with scrolling!!! Diana Thompson has a really good sawing guide on her website for cutting compounds. She is the queen of the compound cut!! And she is a very nice lady!! Check her out:

        She is the best. I have done compound following instructions from her book and she makes it very easy.

          I quite agree with Diane. Diana Thompson's books and patterns are superb !

            Diane is a great source for patterns. If you go to Tthe SAW website http://www.saw-online.com/ and check out the pattern vendors in the resource area.
            I just ordered a set of 3d stuff from the first one on the list "3d scrollsaw patterns" he will send the patterns via e-mail. It is a nice collection of animals and a neat little chair.

                Steve,
                it is 1.25 x 1.25 x 3 inches tall. I checked it out in my sisters doll house yesterday and compared to the rest of her furniture it is a bit small. It was fun to cut a little different from the 3d norm.

                  I'm also interested in compound cutting. I've found a freeware 3-D program that I'm still experimenting with to see how useful it might be in pattern making. Moderators: Is there enough interest in compound cutting to establish a special topic?

                    I don't see any reason why you can't start a thread on the subject in the 'New Patterns or Designs' section. If we get lots of spin-off from it, you might even one day be able to put up a case for a section specially designated for the subject.

                      I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                      Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                      We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
