        How very creative! I can't imagine trying to do something that long on a scroll saw! I'm assuming you did your own design? So are you going to fiberglass the outside or do something to make it water tight? I hope you have a good supply of really strong rubber bands!

              Dared to ship to you. Ok I just e-mailed it did you get it?
              It will be child powered as the eletronics are to expensive for a novice R/Cer like me. Besides I want to see just how ling it takes my inlaws children to destroy it....

              The scroll sawed engine is inside didn't you see it? Oh shoot I forgot to photograph it darn.

              Fiberglass it? No I don't know how to work with fiber glass and heard that the vapors can be toxic (no sure about this though). To water proof it I have sealed all the joints with waterproof glue and then painted over them.

              Just to mess with the children I filled the interior with expandable foam so it will be almost impossable to sink......this will also help with the waterproofing.....

                PatteM you mentioned the boat being long cuts for a scroll saw. I have a dremel scroll saw and I am able to take out the blade holders and turn them 90 degrees and set beside the saw. This makes it so I can cut long pieces as the back of the saw is now on the side not behind the blade. as long as I can support the piece I can continue to cut. In this case about 50 inches fo rthe sides and deck...

                  Beautiful job! Very innovative work!

                  I have a dremel with the scroll saw attachment as well - you lost me on how you did this! ha ha!

                    Very nice. I'd suggest a coat or two of epoxy to make it totally waterproof.

                      Diva it is a dremel scroll saw model 1800. The blade holders are held in by a screw that u need an Allen wrench to remove it with for replacement. If you take out these screws on both the top and bottom blade holders turn them 90 degrees and reinsert the screws the blade now faces the side of the saw not the front. With the blade now facing this way you can run your wood across the saw instead of into the saw and the back of the saw is not a factor any more. Am I explaining it so that it is understandable. May e if I had pictures. My saw and I are not in the same place right now or I would take some.

                        Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                        We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                        He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                        What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
