   My project I'm working on right now is a good example of sawing with the scroll saw....Using a very fine pen or pencil draw three sets of lines..make lots of straight and curved lines.. I like to print out 3 copies of the exact lines so this will give people results as they look them over. Glue the pages on three pieces of wood. One pattern, stay exactly on the line, next pattern saw to the left of that line 1/16" and the last pattern stay to the right of that line 1/16" away...   I like to use a line thin enough where my blade will be a hair on each side of it while sawing....Make the lines long enough so you will get comfortable while doing these comparisons. Two or three feet of lines on each page. 

  Use new blades for each test so worn blades won't enter in to your results..
  When finished with all the cutting and you can stretch all this out in a few days sawing or more....Then after all these have been finished go back and study them and see which style of sawing will make your work look better...staying on the line or leaving a gap between you cut and the line.  Then come back and give everyone the results....

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
