  • Scrolling CDs

    Has anyone tried scolling ornaments from CDs? I know a couple of years ago there was an article about how to do it in one of the magazines. I'm guessing it's like cutting plastic, only thinner. I've got a great big ol' pile of AOL cds that a friend decided she would collect for me

    Instead of throwing them in the trash I thought I would go ahead and try cutting a few out and give them as gifts. The secretaries here usually do something small, in the $5 range. I figured this was better than that - free, except for the blade and my labor.

    Just wondering if anyone had any experience. Thanks

    that sounds like a good idea. You could also cut slots halfway through the cd's and then you could put two or more cd's together for a more 3D effect.

    I would guess that you might want to use masking tape on both sides of a cd before cutting them, or you might get some chip out.

      Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

      Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

      Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
