      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*

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
