I’m getting nowhere fast and it doesn’t surprise me because I don’t use my scroll saw enough. It’s been 4 weeks since I got my first project cut out and that took me 3 weeks to do. I cut so slow as not to miss the line by a mile or cut into the good piece. I have issues that seem to stop me from just sitting down and working on something for more than a 20 minutes at a time. My hubby is disabled and needs help and I’ve always been possessed with a mental problem of getting myself to follow thru on things. It’s so frustrating!
Now that the project is being painted I’m having more trouble because I dislike the painting detail with a passion. The project may get done sometime next week and it’s just a small candle holder lol. I have my next project lined up and this time it’s out of maple, which is the first time to cut on something else besides baltic birch. I’m freaking out about trying to cut it because i cut so slow or will stop right where i am to figure out which way to adjust the wood so i go in the right direction and not into the project itself. It’s like when I cut a circle it’s a series of small lines then a turn to correct. I’m afraid I will burn the wood stopping like this and or going too slow. I have the tape on the wood though to help. What i really need is to practice but it always eludes me or I it. I get excited about the projects but fear gets in the way plus my care-taking of hubby or just plain business and life in general. I’m thinking of just going ahead and starting the new projects cuz they seem like doing them will b so much fun! One is my own design of a mini clock and the other is a plaque from Sheila’s and Keith’s. I just don’t want to ruin the wood. We arent rich lol.
Well if you have any ideas for this old lady hit the reply button and let me have it lol. I’ve watched all the vids, so I think I need my brain examined!
