Scroll Saw

I recently acquired a scroll saw. It’s a bit like a mini band saw. Or like a teeny jigsaw. My goal with it has been to make some beautiful pendants for myself & friends. I’d love a lathe, too, but maybe I can find a neighbor to borrow that from.

I also saw some amazing rings someone made with her scroll saw!

So I started practicing.

And as it turns out, this stuff is harder than it looks and I’m gonna need quite a bit of practice. We even stopped by Soboba, a local specialty wood shop – and man some of that is gorgeous! We saw some zebrawood, walnut, purple heart. But I think I need to stick to smaller, less expensive things for a bit longer.

Though some sanding, staining, and finishing wax certainly help clean things up a bit!
