This is a view of my scroll saw work station area. My workshop is in my garage, so I have to make use of available space.

Being a fellow SCROLLER – I like it for the most part. Very compact. However I need more room for my knees.

Trev, I think that’s a nice setup and it will save you far more time than what it took you to build it.

Hi Trev, I am new in this blog, and new with scroll saw, I live in Argentina, SA. Looking for workstation benches in Google I found your picture. I would like to know two things if you can help. 1. What is the best hight for a workstation bench for using the Scroll Saw (I know that has to be in accordance with my own hight) but I mean below the belt or what? 2. Why is your Scroll Saw inclined? Is it better for the cutting of wood? Thanks for helping!

Hello Ricardo, and welcome to Lumberjocks. My scroll saw table is 30” high, not counting the beveled support that the saw is attached to. The reason that I have the saw tilted that way is because it just makes for more comfortable body posture while sitting and cutting on the saw. I use a stool while cutting on the scroll saw. When the saw is tilted this way, it makes it easier to see your work and the see the lines for cutting without having to lean way over the work piece to see your cutting lines. Lots of people have their scroll saws mounted in this fashion. You will find it a lot more comfortable and easier to see what you are doing while cutting, and will prevent a sore back. I hope this answers your question. Happy scrolling, and I look forward to seeing some of your projects here.

Trev, thank you very much for your profitable counsel… I have found a very interesting homemade model for a scroll saw stand that I think will be manufacturing myself in the following days. You can’t get many tools here in South America and that makes you mind going on looking for better ways to reach your goal. However, it is a very nice way to do things. Here is the url address where I found the model for my future stand: http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com.ar/2010/03/home-made-scroll-saw-stand-by-kenneth.html
Thanks again for your help!

Have your say...
