An Overview of Scroll Sawing
By Guild Member, Barry Bender
I made furniture for years. Enough to fill my home and the homes of my daughter and son. I wanted to continue woodworking, so I looked into scroll sawing. I got hooked into it quickly and have enjoyed it to this day.
In this presentation I will show you how easy it is and how inexpensive it is. I will also show many examples of what can be done on a scroll saw. Making clocks, ornaments, Corian trivets, luminary boxes, and more.
I will show what type of scroll saws are available and what to look for and avoid. Resources for patterns and supplies will be made available as well.
