Finally at age 60 (a few years ago) I found the patience to use a scrollsw and not break a blade every 30 seconds. Over the years I’ve had 3 scrollsaws that wound up being sold or given away because I got frustrated as heck using them…NO PATIENCE! I bought another one (only $99 this time) and started on my scrollsaw journey. A Delta 16”. No variable speed, no quick change blade holder, etc. Bare bones.

My first projects were the wooden locks I’ll post another place. This was my attempt at a compound cut fretwork. Compound cuts mean that each individual piece has more than one plane to cut out. As an examle..the leaves had 2 cuts. One 90 degrees from the other. The first cut(s) actually cut the arc of the four leaves in a 1” square block. The second cut actually (90 deg to the block) cut out the outline of the leaves. Remove the tape and viloa…4 leaves fell out. Neat! The flower petals were cut the same way. The stems too. The vase was a little more involved because not only did it have outlines and arcs, it also had areas inthe sections that needed drilled and then cut out. Really a neat procedure.

I too have had difficulty and lack of patience with the scrollsaw! This is a gorgeous piece, bound to be the center of many conversations.

Totally mind blowing. I hope to achieve your ability someday…i have 10 years to catch up to your age..maybe by then. Question: I realize that a scroll saw cuts very detailed and delicate curves, so what would a person use a band saw for?
Thanks,

Bill

I used to do all of my craft work on a bandsaw until I got the scrollsaw. It was getting tough to get a 1/8” blade that didn’t snap while cutting some of the tight turns I was doing. The outline of the wooden lock bodies were done on the bandsaw. Now I use it for roughing out patterns and resawing wood. I ocaisionally use it to cut thin metal too.
