I finally was able to get my brand new Scroll Saw and I’m very exited, I’ve been wanted to get a Scroll Saw for long time and finally got the chance to buy one, specially I got lucky to find decent brand, most I’ve seen in Mex. are low entry level as many people named, and I got a good deal on this, a bit cheeper than USD pricing, so that’s is a plus for me + not having to pay transportation and import cost.
Any way, I wanted to have the saw at home not at the shop (not really a decent shop, but where I have all my woodworking tools) and my Wife’s condition was not to keep it visible with in the house, so I came up with a simple storage solution where I can “hide” from the rest of the furniture in the house. I made this same color as most of the furniture to keep the peace and love with my wife, jejeje…. The reason behind is that I want to share with the family an other type of woodworking and have them in to the love of woodworking, my toolds are a danger zone for wife and kids they say, and ussually dont get visit wile working, but I want to start looking in to it and I think a scroll saw is less intimidating than the other saws, besides is easier to see more on the Art side of the woodworking, I showed my wife some of Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) desings and she told me she wanted to learn how to do those, so that’s a win on my purpose.
as you can see from the pencil plans is made of two pcs were I can keep the Sacroll Saw inside the big cabinet. It’s on caster and it locks the scroll saw mobile base. The Saw mobile base is also on caster and has a working table that can be used as needed. Also made a dust container below the Saw table and the base has a drawer also as dust container, I’m planning to hook the vacum if necessary. the Saw base and the cabinet has lots of storage, I’m planning to add drawers to the bid cabinet so I can store all sorts of tools and stuff for this hobby. also I used a Plastic folder to storage sand paper, and I’ll be adding more stuff as required. is all made of MDF to keep cost lower. Now I can start improving my skills as Scroll sawyer, I notice so far that stright lines are hard to control on the saw, need lots of practice, and I’m taking Sheila’s classes too.
Total height is 4’feet tall, by about 3.5’feet wide, and about 20” deep, my original plan was to make about 6’feet tall but cost reduction won this time. but still lots storage space.
thks for looking what I called my Play Station, it will be my “PS1” from now on!
