I just completed a set of two video’s to help out the newbies to scroll sawing. The video series includes a printable “Cutting Guide” that can be used for practice cutting and covers most of the different types of cuts that will be performed on a scroll saw.
Part 1 goes over the basics of pattern application, wood preparation and some insight on how to drill straight holes as well as preventing tear out during the drilling process. I recommend that everyone watch the part on preventing tear out while drilling.
Part 2 is much more hands on, and shows actual cutting of the practice guide with tips and tricks on how to handle the different types of cuts that newbie scrollers will be faced with. Some of you vets might even pick something up.
As with every thing, there are multiple ways to do things, these videos show the way’s that have worked for me and should be a good starting point for beginners. For example, there are many ways to apply patterns, I’m simply showing the way I do it because it would take too much video to show other options. This doesn’t mean it is the only way to do it, it’s just the method I choose so feel free to look into other methods as well.
Would love to hear your comments!
Hmmm? Don’t know why the videos won’t embed? Well here’s a link where you can watch them:
