3/4 on the purple heart and bubinga, 1/8 on the backer boards, but cutting that exotic dense hard wood stacked was a mistake, over workered the scroll saw, Burnt the wood, and burnt up the scroll saw, but the fish are pretty lol

I guess it would! So if you were to do it again, would you cut them separately or use thinner stock?
