So I decided to try my hand at some scroll saw projects. The only problem is that I don’t actually own a scroll saw. I mounted my jigsaw under a simple table, and worked with thin baltic birch pieces. I know it’s not as precise as it could be, but I was pleased with the layered results. The eagle is 4 layers with various stains. The lighthouse actually has some very shallow routing on the top layer to give the appearance of depth. The Detroit D is just mounted on another piece of plywood with some fine lines routed in for character. All three were Christmas presents this year. I get some pictures together of the setup I used, and add them to my blog soon.

Nice! If you can do that well with a jigsaw, imagine what you could do with a scroll saw!

Pretty imperssive what you’ve made with bottom mounted jigsaw.
