This is a vase I designed for a project on my scroll saw blog. I posted a video tutorial and free pattern at http://www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com

It does not have the flowing lines that are possible from a lathe but it’s much easier to make. The project is made by cutting concentric rings from 3/4” stock and reverse stacking. The saw table is set to 20 degrees which makes the rings line up correctly. This vase is made from poplar. I’m going to cut one from walnut next.

Interesting process. Nice job.

How do you like your Dewalt scroll saw?

Thanks Gary. The Dewalt has served me well for a few years now. I like the upfront controls and tool less blade change.

Steve, very nice project. I guess this is similar to the stackable baskets I made a number of years ago. Great job!

Steve,

This is a nice vase and a very interesting construction process. I went through the videos and they were well presented and informative.

Thanks for the post.

That is some nice work. Your scrollsaw clock for beginners is an interesting piece also.

Very cool Steve. I like this technique.

I just watched your video and had a thought… but perhaps you or other LJs have thought about it or even already done it… It seems that one could mimick a segmented bowl using this technique too. Once you cut the rings, if you then quartered them, reglued them in a different order into a ring again, then purposefully mismatch the vertical glue lines between each ring (row), I think it would appear very similar to a turned segmented bowl.
