I’m looking into making a scroll saw bowl as a present to my wife for our anniversary. Tried an initial test run last night on soft pine wood, using a hand held Skil Saw.
Holy cow, the results were FAR from ideal, and I quickly learned that it truly requires skill and experience to make something beautiful…or even a straight cut!.
Granted, a hand held saw of course is a far cry from a true, stationary scroll saw, but it still is clear that it’s a skill, and not just a “trace the line” grammar school level affair.
I didn’t take pics yet of the awful result; maybe I’ll do that tonight, and we can all have a good chuckle…
I’ll be switching to my mill for this project; that should make things go much more smoothly.
Can’t wait for the GF to arrive, and make things like this a snap
