        When I saw this pattern, I was worried about the bottom right hand piece. Is it as narrow as it appears?

          Well, yes it is, now that you mention it. That actually started to break, but i caught it in time, hit it with a touch of wood glue and the repair was completely invisible. The glue actually reinforced the piece so it's not it's not so fragile.

              Very timely. How thick is the wood?

                I like that one alot. It should be make out of "heartwood" or redwood for the heart and maple for the border.

                  Bob, the wood is 1/4" Baltic birch.

                    Cool. I just bought 1/4" Birch plywood from Lowe's tonight and plan to make this design for my first project. All of their wood is slightly warped, but from the old threads I read, the warp often goes away once you cut the wood (stress is removed - wood can move).

                        I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

                        He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

                        Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                        I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                        I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                        They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                        The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
