Steve,
I just set up my scroll saw, and have been looking at intarsia mags for a few months. I haven’t done any projects yet. I am taken with the chickadees at the bird house project that was in one of the mags. I haven’t a created anything yet, but have a fair idea how to go about it…I think. I would love to buddy up.
Thanks for the invite.

Steve, I have been scrolling for a while, and do a bit of intarsia. I like to do Christmas stuff and would like to help . It’s easier then you think.

My scrollsaw actually belonged to my husband, it’s a Rigid 1650. He bought it years ago and never used it, it was brand new in the box. He gave it to me to set up and use, I built a small table and mounted the saw to the top.
I bought different size blades a few weeks ago, now I see a lot of projects call for reverse cutting blades. I am going to get some.
You may or may not know that Rigid no longer makes a scroll saw. Not sure what the quality of it is, but I’m soon going to find out.
Anyone have input on a rigid scroll saw ?

Dont know about the scroll saw but I do have their planer and sliding compound miter and both are great tools.Look for vibration and a square cut.If you can not a perfect square cut then your intarsia will be very hard to fit together.
