  • 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.

              John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

              Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

              I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

              I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.
