I posted the forum topic here, and on other forums, and really did not get an answer. Perhaps it is not that easy to answer. Perhaps I misstated the question. Perhaps it depends on the type of scrollsawing one does (which in my case is mostly fretwork). Well after lots of conversation and thoughts I will attempt to answer my own question even if only for myself. In doing so I will make no mention of brands of tools but only types. First of all I think you will need tools to reduce stock to...

The task of this cabinet is to support the center front of St Patrick Cathedral model. I will make it so that the center of the model will pull out 24” to view the interior details.This cabinet will be 22” wide and 32” deep. There will be an internal frame attached to cabinet 7, to support the sliding assembly for the cabinet. This shows the complete fixed portion of the cabinet. It will be the main support for the shell. This is the complete frame for the outer shell ...
Ok just finished this piece made of 3/4” walnut, except for a mirror background. A little nervous about it, but going to jump right in and for the 1st. time cut plexiglass for the background of this project. I just ordered a piece that’s 1/8” thick x 12”x24” from Sloan’s Workshop along with Olson blades double skip tooth 3D and 5D. Not sure witch size blade will do it, so got the 2 sizes. LOL Sloan’s has instructions on how to cut and handle t...
Here is the bed project at hand…-----I added some through tenons to complete the front legs.-----With the legs complete, it was simply a matter of constructing a mortise and tenon frame. The grooves for the panels are 1/2” deep, while the stile tenons are 1-1/2” long for added strength. This extra tenon length also helps to register the stiles in postion during glueup. -----Next I temporarily clamp the panel behind the frame, to transfer the opening size to the panel. -...
This is a picture of the wreath I built last year for the Boise Festival of Trees. Not bad for a first attempt at building a wreath, or in other words I thought it turned out pretty cool… Yeah… that’s my Daughter, she turned out pretty cool too!!! :) For the wreath being built this year I’m using EZInlays AmbersBear as the main focal point of the wreath hanger. Because it’s Christmas I decided to put a Santa Hat on the inlay too. I found this AWESOME piece...
Made my first project using the new Mortising Machine. It’s a rough Arts and Crafts style picture frame. Material is 1×3 pine which is part of why it’s pretty rough. I didn’t want to do a lot of glue clean-up so the only glue is on dowels that pin in each corner. The tenons fit pretty tight by themselves. I have an old map from 1897 of the city I live in that I wanted to frame. Besides the machine I tried some new techniques with some success. As usual I...
Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!
