Finally got some shop time this week. It’s been difficult this last month to get out. Lots of health problems in the family and my office moved to a new location – further away from home so my commute is longer.
Then I got into make this project on the scroll saw and it’s been taking longer than expected. It’s a box with a turtle shape. It’s a birthday present and just one of those deals where it would have been nice to have read ALL the magazine article on the project before starting. sigh…
I glued too many layers together at one time and cutting the main box has been a pain. The scroll saw blade like to bend on wood this think and it’s far to easy to get a concave cut. And it burnt the wood where I got impatient. Well it’s been a great learning experience and next time I’ll be better prepared.
Here are a couple of pictures of where I am on this one:
