I really am starting to enjoy this Intarsia art, but don’t worry there is still a lot of other scroll saw patterns and techniques I still enjoy doing as well. Intarsia is just another bullet in the gun.

The backer is Walnut, the Lilly’s bodies are Maple, the little red leaves are Red Cedar, the leaves are Blue Pine and the stem is again Walnut. It measures 8 1/2” tall by 7” wide.

Beautiful :) I have had trouble with the scroll saw. I am extremely new to this and everytime I try the scroll saw it vibrates violently. I tried replacing the blade. I have tried different wood, speed, size. It really just scares me because it is so unpredictable. Any recommendations?

Hey 3peace, there can be several reason for the vibration. My first question would be is it mounted securely? A scroll saw needs to have a solid base in order to work properly. If it is securely mounted to a solid table or a stand, then at least we can narrow down some of the issues. When I say securely, I mean you can push on the saw with your hands, and it shouldn’t move. Knowing what kind of saw you have will also be a big help. Once you get the vibration taken care of, I think you will come to love your scroll saw.
