These are made from pallet oak; with an unknown hard wood for the wheels.
A mancave special -toy cars. Will pop a top!

Length is from 8-1/2 9 inches to 9 inches, about 3 inches tall and 2-3/4 wide. At edges of wheels. Body is one inch wide.

A real test for the scrollsaw. Almost a polish to the cuts.

Just a very quick, sloppy spray of poly on them.

These are MAO’s fault. I Needed something to compliment his beautiful 6 pack carrier.

Trying to figure the resize on my pictures to work too.
As always rescued wood used!

Maybe I’m being thick headed, but I really don’t know what you are talking about 8-1/2 9 to 9 inches?
how does this test a saw? or is it a saw operators test

Work on those photos, I’ll bet that would help
And thanks for the post

It is hard to see the pictures but I can see you put the saw to the test.

The one behind the ruler looks interesting, a little hard to see though.

maybe you are you conducting a social experiment?

Anyone who has ever cut old, hard oak with a scrollsaw knows that it does give the saw a good workout too.

I used to be able to just put the pictures on here; no problem! Now same camera, same sd card and all sorts of issues. The site does not accept them as it used to. I have tried taking them into paint and resizing; can NOT seem to find the right ratio yet.

Here is another attempt that I will not know how it works until I see it on LJ!

By using the resize on paint and going down to 35 % I did get it to accept this picture. Let’s see how it looks.

OK, ok, now I see what your doing … And I agree that hard woods like oak and hard maple are a “work out” for any scroll saw unless they are very thin pieces … looks like a real fun project
