  • Tips-Cypress Knee Question

    For Sandy re removing cypress knee bark. Boil knees in water and vinegar two hours. Bark strips off easily. Dry knees in microwave at 30 second on high, rest and cool, repeat sequence. Carving off bark damages the natural contours of the wood.

    theTips section where Sandy wanted to know how to get the bark off of cypress

      A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

      If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
