  • Kleenex box

    First try for that kind of work.

    To thank my sister , I did that box , from her suggestion, and put the flower she suggested.
    Wood is black walnut , 1/8" thick, with this wax .
    Flower cut at the scroolsaw , and I put red marquetry inside for the flower.

    Before the finish


    Once applied

            Our Judges are some of the best woodworkers I have ever met. On occasion I get asked to explain what I look for in the scrolling categories. I point out all of the nuances. I can't be a judge as I have intarsia and scroll work entries.

            There may have been some crud on the tips from manufacturing.
            In the ~20 years of scrolling I never cleaned the ends of my blades until recently. Even with the Pegas clamps I was having some blade slippage, I now scuff the ends of my blades with some 220 grit paper End of problem.!...

            Don’t over sand them as you will shorten their usable life. Only sand as needed. Another thing to do is clear your blades before installing. Blades are coated with oil to prevent rust. Wipe the ends with alcohol or lightly sand with 320 grit.

            The fact that you only had approximately 6 hours on the saw tells me there was a thin oily film on the clamps from the manufacturing process.
            If problem continues you may have spread the clamps in the process of tighten blades. A common problem with OEM parts. This issue will disappear by replacing...
