      I get mine 1/16" from a Hobby shop. If you go to a box store make sure it is Baltic birch.

        For that thin, I just get mine from the local Michael's craft store, using the 40% off coupon that is regularly in the paper. It may seem expensive per piece, but when you consider how many bookmarks you get out of one piece, it's not that bad.

          Hobby Lobby has some thin wood, too.
          And you can go to their web site and get a 40% coupon off.
          I think you can only use one coupon per day but if you have other people going by Hobby Lobby also.....

            Just went to Michaels with a 50% off coupon and got a 1/32" x 12" x 24" piece of Baltic Birch plywood. The regular price was $8.99. My total was $4.76 with tax.
            I was going to get two pieces, but we decided on a gift for my daughter with the other 50% off coupon we had.

            Thanks for the heads up markdavid.

              I was driving by Michaels yesterday and went in and checked. Yup, they have those thicknesses.

                        I have used the scroll saw to cut chunks from a 5x5. But, it is easier to use the multifunction oscillating power tool like the one I got at harbor fright Cordless Oscillating Multifunction Tool

                            made my first strip cut, with a wood blade, 10-tpi, in the jig saw, resultin in very bad splinterin along the cut line…second strip cut, i used a metal cuttin blade, 18-tpi, marked my cut line, then run a strip of 1-in maskin tape over the line, resultin in a lot less splinterin…maybe i’ll have the techneque figured out, by the time i get my second 5x5 sheet, or i’ll make enuff to buy that multi-tool…oh, wait, Christmas is just around the corner…*GRINZ*

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
