585 days ago by GenuineGeek | 9 comments »

Last Saturday I posed a goblet that I had made from construction grade 1/2inch plywood that was glued up and then turned. It came out better than expected.Today I was trying to turn another complimentary piece from the same products and process.Here are the pics of what happened. I am not sure if my tool caught the wood and caused the break or if the break caused the piece to move and and then catch.In any case, the plywood came apart (not at a glue line) and flew and bounced around the gar...

Frame Saw Build #4: Stainless Steel Blade Clips

1035 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

It’s snowing here so Its out of the unheated shop and staying indoors – good time to make the blade clips. I chose to use stainless steel because I waned a material that won’t rust, be strong and capable of sustaining the blade tension, and I like the color (not a big fan of brass although I do like it as an accent in some cases). I ordered some 1/2” stainless steel rods from Speedymetals a while back for no real reason when I ordered some other material as it was o...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #6: Cutting Sharp (Acute) Outside Corners

1120 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 38 comments »

By now most of you should have a bit of a feel for cutting some nice outside curves on the scroll saw. As we know however, most designs also consist of some nice sharp angles. Making accurate corners can be a bit of a challenge when you are new to scroll sawing, but with a few quick tips and a little bit of practice, you will find it is not as difficult as you may have imagined. Before long you will be scrolling those angles with little effort or thought. In order for me to show you ...

From board to bowl #1: 12" Scroll Saw Bowl Blank

1317 days ago by SASmith | 19 comments »

This blog will show how I make a 12” bowl blank from 1 BF of lumber. Cut a 12”x12”x3/4” square and draw an X from corner to corner to find the middle. Using a compass draw a circle in the middle of the board the size you want the bottom of the bowl to be. In this case around 4”. Draw concentric circles spaced the thickness of the board (in this case 3/4”) Drill 1/8” holes at 45 degrees on the 4 inner circles to insert a scroll saw blad...

2030 days ago by itsme_timd | 27 comments »

Great news for those that didn’t see the previous entries, the box is safe and sound in Bruce’s (CanadianWoodChuck) hands and will be on the way to Rikkor in MN soon. We’re all glad to see the box back in action and even more so that things are mostly OK for Ned. Make sure to keep him in your thoughts and prayers! The map! Canada Post told Bruce he should make it over to Rikkor in about 8 days, that’s not too bad at all and gives him some time drool in an...
