This was my first attempt at using the Scroll Saw and only with a lot of help and Guidance from Sheila Landry and William.
It is a piece of Burl Elm with not much going for it. Where the Sun Moon (Sheila’s Design) is was a big hole. I will take some before pictures later :) It is about 1 1/2” thick

The saw was given to me by someone who could not use it due to vibration. After using it I found that it had some major vibration issues. not to mention the noise. It took pinned blades and was a poorly finished. William helped me do a rebuild and I made brackets to take plain ended blades. It just needed some fettling, better nuts and bolts and removing all the tin bits.
Thanks for looking

Mighty nice scroll saw work. Puts my first attempt to shame…in fact it puts my last attempt to shame.

OK, that make s you look pretty advanced, not a beginner. A scroll saw is just another tool in the artists cup of brushes. I like the surface work that creates the mood for the work…........

Hope all is well…............

Your first scroll saw project Jamie?! Well done!! And just as amazing … doing a ‘remodeling’ job on the saw to make it work for you. I’m impressed … and looking forward to viewing your next project!!

Beautiful piece Jamie. It looks great.

You have a talent for scrollsaw. It’s hard to believe this is a first piece.

Great work!
