« Part 10: Lesson 10 - Cutting Negative Designs Part 11 of Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing series Part 12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2 »

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve been here at the class. Those of you who have been following my daily blog know how busy I have been with many different things. As usual, I wish that there were 48 hours in a day (and then some time to sleep on top of that!) But there aren’t and I have to make due with the same 24 that everyone else has to work with. And that is OK.

Lately I have had a lot of people write me asking many of the same questions regarding different aspects of scroll sawing. While some of them have been answered here in previous classes, I thought that I would take the time to add some more lessons to the class here on Lumberjocks. This time, instead of having everyone follow along, I am going to do more of a demonstration of making a project from start to finish. I think that by doing things this way, I will better be able to cover all the ‘little’ things that pop up when we are involved in doing a project. These things in themselves may seem like small things, and for most people don’t even warrant asking questions about – but in the process of building the project, each element is equally important, no matter how small, in the overall success. It’s somewhat like building a wall. Each brick that is put in place lends to the overall strength and success of the structure.

So let’s get started!

The project that I am going to create is a new one I designed called “Reindeer Games Overlay Scroll Sawn Ornaments.” In making it, each ornament consists of two pieces – a base with some negative lettering spelling the name of the reindeer, and an overlay piece with a silhouette of the reindeer in flight. Each of the layers are approximately 1/8” think stock, which makes them ideal for making multiple pieces at a time by stack cutting.

Because I made two sets (One in maple and walnut and the other in 1/8” Baltic birch plywood) I will be demonstrating how you can finish the ornaments in two different ways to achieve very different results. Hopefully, by following me through this process step-by-step, you will pick up a few things that you may have not previously known.

I realize that because of the way this is set up some of the information may be things we already discussed in previous classes, but since that class was a year ago, I don’t see that as an issue. Besides, seeing these process used in practical application will not only reinforce your knowledge, but it may also help you apply some of these techniques to your own projects and daily routines.

So let’s get on with it! Class is once again in session! Of course I welcome and appreciate all comments and discussions about not only these techniques, but also those that have been successful for you. We learn a great deal from each other by sharing information and I by no means feel that I know everything! I always say that there are many paths to the same destination. So lets see how many different paths we can explore to expand our knowledge and skills here.

I hope you enjoy the video. Part 1 includes the introduction and set up of the pieces.

I have embedded the video here, for those of you who don’t like to click on things that leave the site, but if you want to go to YouTube and subscribe to my channel, you can do so here:

Scrollgirlcanada's Channel

Once there, you can see other videos that I have released and subscribe to my channel. When you subscribe, you receive an email notification every time I upload a new video. I plan on doing more videos on both scroll sawing and also finishing and different painting techniques, so if you are interested in those subjects, you may want to subscribe.

Thanks to Martin and Debbie for allowing me to post here in this forum. It is wonderful to be able to share ideas with you all and learn from you all too!

Enjoy!

Hi Sheila,

Well after all this time of following you, I decided to try this one out. Actually just getting started so I’m a little confused re: the blades. Do you have a post somewhere that talks blades?

Hi, Ken:
Yes, in Part 2 of this series I talk a bit about blades. I also have links to and Olson Blade Chart that you can download and and article that Keith wrote on blade selection that is available on the Free Stuff page of my site.

Scroll Saw Blade Selection

I hope these help answer your questions. If you still have any additional question, please don’t hesitate to ask. Welcome! :D
