  • First Try at a Puzzle

    I have been scrolling for about 3 months now. I have mainly been cutting out names and some small stuff. This is my first attempt at making something like this. This is the pattern that was in the magazine. My wife seen it and wanted me to cut it out of oak or hickory but I used a pine board for my first try. 3 of the letters have been stained. I am very slow at this but I am learning. Thanks to all the tips here has got me a long ways. I know it is not perfect but my first attempt. It took about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to cut. Should it take take that long?

        Very nice. I am still very new to scolling, so I am seeing something new virtualy every day, who'd have thought you could make a recognisable Palmino(is it?) from a word.

            Thanks, It just seems like it takes me a long time to cut things out. But I run my saw pertty slow and take my time. If I run the saw to fast I have a hard time staying on the lines. Sunlion my wife has a quarter horse that is a paint. He is brown and white. Close to a Palmino.

              Speed is not important. Very nicely done.

                  very nicely done for your first puzzle...i cut at what speed feels comfortable for me, sometimes slow, sometimes fast depending on what i'm cutting and how intricate it is ...who cares how long it takes....it's hand crafted and thats whats important.

                      Linda,
                      Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                      There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                      Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                      In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
