I have had a scroll saw for some time,,, but the cheap nature of it left my hands numb after a short time.
I was able to buy a super shape Dewalt scroll saw,,, very smooth.

This is my first project and I was able to cut the entire thing out all at the same time,, and in a short time…
There were some blades with the scroll saw…. I have to figure out what these are and where to get them.

I have to get a picture of the shelf support from the side,,, Both are in the shape of a sword.

There’s many sources for scroll saw blades. I personally use Flying Dutchman blades and can’t say enough good stuff about them. I buy mine from Mike's Workshop. I go through so many that it isn’t cost effecient to buy them by the dozen locally. I buy them by the gross (144 blades) from Mike’s.
Be careful now. Scrolling is highly addictive. You’ll find yourself doing more and more, bigger and bigger, projects. Did you get the pattern for the shelf from Steve Goode's site? If not, that is where it originally came from. He has some of the best free patterns out there. If you get ready for more challanging projects, might I suggest Wildwood Designs? Also, Wildwood Designs carries scroll saw blades from six different manufactorers if you wish to try different brands.

Nice job!

Best blades I’ve ever used are made by Flying Dutchman. Best prices are at:

I have ordered hundreds of blades from this site with zero problems.

At least that’s my opinion.

Good luck!

Yes I did get the pattern by eMail from Steve Goode’s site…
There are so many now… I am having a problem choosing what is next.

Addicting: 1) Turning 2) Scroll Sawing 3) ?? Carving

Thanks to all about the blades.

Sheldon makes a pirate wall shelf and you guys suggest he buy scroll saw blades from a comapny called Flying Dutchman. Anyone else the the irony here. I’m not going to even try making a joke, this is funny enough all on it’s own. LOL

Good Job! I made a couple of these for my Grandsons for Christmas. Painted them flat black. they really seemed to like them. I second the recommendation of Steve good’s scrollsaw blogspot. He has provided a great number of resources for us scrollers.

Great! I have a Dewalt saw also and love it. Have had it for about 8 years now and still going strong. I agree with William regarding his recommended sites.
