I have just discovered that scroll saw wood work cam be as much fun as being on the lathe, This is an 8” diameter
3” high bowl of plywood and red gum insert. This is my first effort at this style, I cut the rings a bit thin but managed to get it reasonable. Any clues from experienced scroll sawers welcome , so are comments.

Cheers, Jim

Your bowl is beautiful. I don’t know how you can consistently cut such thin layers. Awesome.

Thanks Vicki, I did stumble onto one of her videos on Y.tube and just had to have a go but it could be addictive.
Boss and Jim if you have a look at the above site and follow it through it will save me explaining, she also has two videos on laminating. Pete, I saw it and just had to do it, addictive, I have another 4 patterns cut out.
