  • scroll wood blanks

    Can anyone give me some companys that sell wide scroll saw wood . 1/4' x 12' x 12' is the size I really need in most hardwoods. Most companys seem to have only 6'-8' wide or plywood. Thanks

    Roy, if you do not want to use plywood you are much better off gluing up you own blanks by far. First you can glue any size you want. Second you get a more stable blank. Wide boards especially that wide will cup and bow no matter what spicies it is. There are very few types of wood that wide anyway. If you use 1/4 sawn lumber you will even take out more of the cupping. To glue a blank all you need is good carpenters glue, clamps, and a way of sawing good glue joints on the edges of the boards. Today you can get a good glue joint using a good table saw blade or if you have a jointer that is the best way. Good luck JTTHECLOCKMAN

          Wildwood designs has the wood you looking for, but some of it cost a fortune. Best glue up your own.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
