  • First cuts

    Here are a couple of examples of what I've been doing. They aren't very good but I can see progress. After reading and talking to a few folks I have found that my wood is too thick, it's 1/2 inch plywood and poplar. Today I found some 1/4 inch birch and will try that. Still trying to figure out the blade sizes, some are really aggressive. Keep trying though, right? I did try the blue tape on back and it made a world of difference in the cutting, it helps A LOT! More pics will come as I progress.

    Anyone with suggestions, ideas or constructive criticism please jump in.

    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!.
