here is a star wreath… again from Sue Mey’s patterns. Thought it was appropriate for the day… I was able to stack cut these, as the star part is cut from 1/4 inch baltic birch, and the backer is 1/8” baltic birch. Spray painted with Krylon gloss paints.

All cuts done with #1 spiral scroll saw blade. Interior cuts done first, then the backer was added and the center and the outside perimeter were cut. Project took about 6 hours to complete, sanded with 400 grit paper.

Happy Independence Day!

Nicely done and very appropriate!

I have been scrolling for about 30 plus years and have never tried the spiral blades. I know they cut a bit rougher than straight blades…at least I was told this. If this it correct, did your design need any sanding on the interior? I really like all the wreaths you cut

oh yeah… there’s definitely sanding to do… especially on the baltic birch. I didn’t have a tremendous amount of sanding on the oak though. I do find that I have a lot more control with the spiral blades. That’s pretty much all I use now.
