I do belive its starting to look good.

My wife told me she wanted to learn to use the scroll saw so she found a buch of free puzzle paterns. Last night she dug around in the shop looking for a piece of wood I asked if i could help her but she wanted to do it her self. She ended up finding a piece of 3/4 plywood she she used the ROS to clean it up. Then cut it to size on the RAS. ( I had taught her how to use it saftly a month or so ago) she transferd the pattern to the piece with some carbon paper. Our scroll saw isnt what I would call a scroll saw its more like a jig saw in a table. Heres a pic of its Rockwell Bladerunner

I only had one scroll saw blade for it and it wasnt very sharp she played with it for a little bit and got fruested with it. So on the way home tonight we stoped at lowes and bought some new blades and a couple nice pieces of pine she will try again tomorrow. I will post her work when she gets one done. I am so happy she it trying this out I love working in the shop with her.
Thanks for reading
