Another attempt at scroll sawing. Added red gum strips to plywood and ended up with an 8: square, cut 4 rings and base on the scroll saw and after a fair bit of sanding and a coat of EEE ended up with a 7 1/2: diam bowl.
Have found this fun but addictive, now working on making the plywood patterns more of a feature. Now know what is meant by practice as the damn blade sure won’t follow the line.
