      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

                          I would just rip it on a table saw if it was me..

                            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*

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                                Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                                Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
