Tree Of Life Scroll Saw

I had a snow/ice day off of work today, so I got some extra shop time.
This project comes from a book called “simply wood”. The projects in the book are a little different then most scroll saw books, they are like projects that involve a scroll saw instead of scroll saw only. If you have a scroll saw gathering dust and are looking for something to do with it, take a look at the book, it might inspire a project or two.

I also filmed the process of cutting the tree, someone on another forum requested a video of someone cutting a project. It is just about the most boring video ever, but someone may find something interesting in it.

that’s the #1 project from that book that I want to make.
I appreciate the video. Although I’ve done some scroll saw work, I’m not very fast.
What blade are you using?

Nice Video and project. I recognize the Hegner. Just curious i notice when you re-insert the blade you re-tension the blade. Do you have to? I didn’t notice you loosening it. Just curious.

Debbie – I used an Olson number 5 skip tooth blade. It is my favorite blade, I use it on most of my projects if I can.

Chris – On my Hegner, I usually don’t relese tension before removing the blade. When using my Hitachi, I do loosen the tension before taking the blade off. I don’t know why I do different things on the different saws. The re-inserting the blade changes the tension so I do re-tension each time. Sometimes it is fine, others it needs tweeking.

Nice project! Someone just gave me an old craftsman scroll saw and I have been thinking about what to do with it. This project just inspired me to plug it in.

That turned out fantastic. I love that pattern and you did an awesome job with it. I enjoyed your video as well, but wish you had zoomed in more. I like seeing how people cut on the line and make their quick turns. Just a thought if you do another video. Not trying to be rude or ungrateful. ;o)

Vicki- I got that comment from a couple of other people as well, so you are not being rude :) I am thinking of doing another video so I can get the angle a little better. I think I am going to use it as an excuse to get in the shop some more.
Thanks for all of the compliments!
