  1. So, if you use a scrollsaw, what brand, make or model do you use? Pros and cons appreciated. I'll start; Delta Model 40-560 Type II with quick clamp, blade clamp. Pros, not terribly expensive, Two speed, very fast blade clamp/unclamp (important for fretwork), up front tension release/adjustment , fast tension release. Cons, some vibration, small table, never use the slow speed, adjusting the blade clamp for different blades cumbersome.

    Early project

    This is an early project I did for the bosses office. Last week he paid me high praise when he said he'd always thought I did it on the laser.

    That time of year again

    Posted this last year, might have to make a few more this time around... Only takes a 1 x 6 x 8' to make all four of these.....need to find the patterns again, and the other supplies.... This one is a bit "blocky", I have been known to use a router table and a 3/8" round-over bit, to round things out.. Big red bow, and a red nose. Black sharpie for the eyes. Nails and glue to hold things in place. Hot-melt glue to hold the "antlers" ....just in case Rudolph should fall over. Hot melt will give way before any of the wood will. Usually stain the antlers a dark walnut. Sometimes, I will even use real Walnut. depending on what I use to cut out the parts, each Rudolph will take about,...1/2 an hour to do..

    That time of year, again?

    I guess I'll have to dig around for the patterns, again.. Usually made out of a 1x6 pine board, a few nails, and some red things. Sometimes, I even use real walnut for the antlers.... Hot melt glue to hold the antlers in place....because the hot melt will give way before the wood will, IF it is knocked onto the floor Eyes were done with just a Sharpie. Bow was held in place by a dab of hot melt glue. This one is a bit plain, other times, I have fired up the router table, with a 3/8" round-over bit, and gave Rudolph a more rounded body. Just 6 pieces of pine...could usually get 5 or 6 of these out of an 8' 1x6 board. Might dig around to see IF I can find the old pattern for a sleigh, as well....got a few months yet....

    We have 3 church families, 2 with son's that are deployed overseas and 1 lady that beat breast cancer 9 years ago. I have some left over 1/4" BB plywood and with the weather and the shop warm enough to get out I cut these for them. We'll give them out Sunday.

    Easter Bunny Bank Family

    Here is a family of Easter Bunny banks that I made for a customer for her daughter.  My customer is teaching her daughter to save so there are banks for Pennies, Nickles, Dimes, Quarters, Dollar Bills and Foreign Coins.   The purple bunny is bigger than the rest it is 10 inches tall x 14 inches long x 5 inches wide.  All the other are 8 inches high x 10 inches long x 3 3/4 inches wide.     DW

    Mike's Workshop

    I've been following some other Scroll Sawing forums and it sounds like Mike has retired and sold his business to Wooden Teddy Bear. It sounds like it was on his terms so enjoy your retirement, Mike!

    Dull Blades?

    A thought occurred to me yesterday whilst sawing on some 1/4" Baltic Birch, stacked to 2. "I have been using this same blade for quite some time and it's still working. When will I know when it's time to change?" My answer to myself "The blade will let you know, dummy." I know, I know, talking to myself whilst cutting/sawing. Admit it, guys, you have done the same thing only you were taking to the wood or the tool or the blood spurting from a fresh cut. Anyhow, I thought it would be a great topic. I will reserve MY thoughts until a few others have chimed in. No, I'm not backing out of the thread, I have my own thoughts on this one but want to make sure you have a chance to put your 2% of a buck in the thread first. Awaiting your responses.

    Easy project to do?

    Had found a busted up shelf thingy a while back. After some fussing and cussing, got almost back together. It was missing a couple parts, was loose in a few others. Decided to just build a copy of it in pine. Went out to Lowes with a $20 bill in hand, came back home with 65 cents. Had a decent stack of thin "project" pine boards. Used a couple parts of the old unit to serve as patterns. The two middle shelves were easy to do, just trace the part out, scrollsaw it out, and set it aside. However, the top and bottom shelves were wider than any of the boards I bought. So a few glue ups were done. Last one was done tonight. Took it out of the clamps, block plane to level things up. Traced out the pattern and watched the scrollsaw do it's things. Left a bit of the line, and clamped the part in the vise. Well both parts went into the vise. The rounded corners were belt sanded to match each other. Took LIGHT shavings, one, because I AM taking things easy, and two, didn't want to get carried away. Laid out some notches on the middle shelves and the two uprights. Of course, I had to cut two uprights to length, first. Cordless mitresaw.. Laid out the lines for some notches. Scrollsaw to make a pair of cuts, per notch. Tap a chisel to break out the waste, and a little paring to clean up. Knocked the parts together as a dry fit Not too hateful? Still need to frame in the front for a glass door. Add a couple pilars at the back corners, and figure out how to attach the old trim pieces. Taking things slowly, moving at the speed of smell, I think. Maybe another week, and I can think about a finish...... Til then, stay tuned.

    That Time Of Year, Again

    Time to make a few "Rudolphs". Bandsaw is long gone. I did pick up a scrollsaw last spring ( @ $10) so maybe try it out? Just six pieces of scrap pine. Then just a few nails to hold the "legs" to the body. Maybe a drop of glue as well. Used to run these parts over the router table, to round over the outside edges. Don't have such a thing set up, nowadays. 1" beltsander to smooth the edges, and round them over just a tad. Stain the body a light colour, and the antlers a darker colour. Add a few extras.. And we have Rudolph! Used to be able to get maybe 5 of these out of a 1x6x 8' pine board. Now, I just used scraps of pine. Another look Handsome critter, ain't he? Guess I better dig up them plans I had for a sleigh......

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.
