    Stack a piece of 1/4" something under your 1/8'' it will give you better control and ditch the spiral blades, Try FDUR #1,3or 5's.

    Well..this project got scrapped...

    Over the last 4 sessions of working on it, I broke numerous pieces off. I guess using 1/8" plywood with a small spiral saw isn't the best idea. Ah well, wife said it was ok if I made some compound cut ornaments for her parents so I am going to work on that instead.

    REALLY disappointed though. I had over 20 hours invested in this one. Just too much kept breaking off.

    On wards and up wards!

    Yeah there are some floaters, but the nice thing is that I don't have to follow this pattern exactly as it is...My plan is to cut the major areas and leave a lot of the piddly little pieces alone.

    You might want to be careful . . . . after they see that pic they may decide to cut down that tree what sits right in the middle of their front yard . . . . . just sayin' . . . .

    ) It looks challenging but it will be beautiful!!

    Good Luck.

    I really like the pattern.

    I don't want to seem negative, but it looks like there are a lot of floaters in the pattern or is it just my perspective?

    House pattern

    Just created this pattern in Coyote Stencil. Printed it at 11x8.5 and took to local printshop and had enlarged to 16x12. Cutting on 1/8" plywood. Going to be Christmas present for in-laws..this is their house. Just got some new spiral blades from Mike and so far I LOVE them!

    $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.

    After cleaning the wheel and going through the drawers he found all the attachments/tools that came with the grinder. He priced everything and it was $500 plus. A member was selling the tools tor the wife of a member whose husband died last year. You think SLRA is picky with measuring, you should see...

    Yes, there is a market for the original. I think there are a couple other FL scrollers on this site. There are also a few on the Scrollsaw Village site. I would try scroll saw sites before I attempt Facebook Market Place or Craigslist....
