  • Right Blade

    I am cutting or rather trying to cut the layered deer scene with pattern that was in the Scroll Saw Woodworking mag. Wood is 1/4" curly maple. This is a new experience for me as I always cut in 1/8" oak plywood with a spiral blade. So, in the 1/4" thin wood maple I have been breaking about one blade per minute. I am using the Flying Dutchman XL 2/0 and I don't think its gonna get through the maple. Should I move up to a #1 or change to a different Flying Dutchman blade. I notice there is a 2/0 FDP that has more tpi and is a little thicker. Believe it or not I am most comfortable with a spiral blade but I don't think with this pattern that a spiral will give me the fine definition I need. So, flat bladers please help, I am lost.

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
