  • Getting it All Together

    Just finished scolling the 'United We Stand' project in the spring 2002 issue of 'Scroll Saw Work Shop' magazine, and in trying to dress it up a little I've run into a problem. After many hours of scolling (I'm Slow!) I figured the project deserved better than colored construction paper to back it with, so I used sticky-back felt. The stiff backing cut really nice, but now I have a 3/32 gap between the front wood piece and the back wood piece. Don't think it gonna glue real well without it bowing in the middle. I'm afraid to use screws and take a change at splitting the scolled piece. Only thing I can think of off-hand is to using some type of clear caulk between the two pieces. I would apprecciate any ideals you find folks might have.

    Try using 'tacky' craft glue, available in most craft stores. You can also try putting a veneer strip over the seam to cover it up.

      I don't remember which one I used but I think it was somewhere around #12 which is .029 diameter. Anything between 12 and 19 will work you would just adjust your slot width. There is a pattern for bending it to shape do you have that?

      Old wooden plates.

      Over the years I've found that cutting old wooden plates can be very rewarding. Most of them are very good wood and when you finish your cut out the plate already has a nice finish on it.. I normally buy mine at yard sales or Good Will whenever I can find them....

      I've found in the past that you can find some very nice wood from old wooden plates. When you finish your cut out the wood already has a nice finish. I am only adding a picture of 6 but I have done many of these....
