Tips for Getting the Most from Your Scroll Saw
You never know how to do everything on a scroll saw, every project is unique and so you learn every day. There are a number of online communities devoted to helping you out with your scroll sawing experience! There are many different types of scroll saw, one manufacturer produces a saw where the angle of the blade adjusts rather than the table.
It is important to carefully select the type of blade that you are using so that you can get enough detail in your design. You must select the right blade for the material that you are cutting so that the blade can move freely without sticking or jumping. You must let the saw go around at its own rate, if you push it too quickly then you will not get very accurate cuts. It’s best to just pass the wood through and let the saw take it at its own pace, all you need to do is guide the wood around any intricate design details.
When you are cutting along a pencil line make sure that you also cut the pencil mark off. Once you’ve finished the line it should be exactly where it will be cut. If the pencil line is cut away then you can be sure you’re getting an accurate and even design which is exactly what you planned.
With a little bit of practice and the correct tools for the job then you will be able to experiment with many different designs. All you need to do is spend some time looking for a simple pattern to get started on, perhaps something like a napkin ring would be suitable.
