This is my latest Scroll Saw Shell. It is made out of 1/2” Baltic Birch Ply. With this Shell I wanted to experiment with larger pieces to see the results in the size of the Shell. I started with the Ply cut to 6” x 10”. I glued 4 of these pieces together to make an overall thickness of 1 7/8” and I made 3 of these stacked glued pieces. Once the edges were trimmed square, I cut the angle for the 6 wedges on the band saw. For this Shell I used 5 wedges which resulted in 61 segments. I decided to include a photo of the 61 cut segments. From there you start gluing segments together and shaping and sanding prior to additional gluing. One of the photos also shows all 61 segments glued together into a final 4 sub sections prior to final assembly.
The overall dimensions of this Shell is approx. 9.5” wide by 9.5” tall. I used the 6th wedge to make a stand for the Shell. The finish is a few coats of Tung Oil.
Thanks for looking.
