@DesertRatTom if I put tape on the cut line, I wont see it. I transferred these over using my wintergreen oil. My scroll saw worked for the notches, but that was it. Had to use a spiral bit, to boot.

A band saw is already on my "Wish List" and in my tools list for the future in my bio here. My last one took a dive (or two) off the tabletop, (it was knocked off) and was pitched. I really want a metal one, but we'll see.

@JOAT I've always used my scroll saw as well. I have blades as fine as 0. But I've never used it on BB. Pine, oak, etc, it works great. I get the feeling BB is a wood of a different animal, and I beg to differ; I don't think your way wouldn't have fared any better. I've been cutting for almost 20 years (WOW! wait... really? Dang! Guess so!) Anyway. Been cutting a long time on my scroll, and this is the first time that even a spiral didn't work.

Draw the cut line on the tape. The tape goes on the side where the blade teeth exit the workpiece, on the top for circ and jig saws, bottom for band saws, but with a proper blade and real BB, not really necessary for the band saw.

The saws I mentioned bolt down to a surface, I made a movable stand for mine. Most band saws will cut metal with the right blade. Both saws are steel construction, steel spine. Cut quality is all in the care you take with setup. Lots of used, full sized band saws out there. They are moveable, but tippy. Used price will be about the same as the smaller Rikon ($350). The WEN is $260 at HomeDepot online, free pickup at your local store. Top quality 72 1/2" blades were cheap on Amazon, the shorter blade gets dull faster than the 93 inch blade on most Delta style cast iron saws.

Not giving you a hassle Barb, just trying to be helpful. I bet that Mike in Detroit would love to keep an eye out for a band saw at a good price for you. He's a great guy, I visited him a few years ago when I was in Detroit.

I really like your design, Barb. I'd be very interested in some pictures of the drawings, so I can get a better idea of the angles and shapes. I've taken an interest in working with BB plywood lately, and would like to try your ideas

Sorry you got hurt. That's going to take a while to heal with it being right in the joint.

Barb, I always use a disc sander to sand my fingers.

Nice work on the display shelf. I was surprised that you got it done so soon - seems like you just asked for tips on construction and you're already done.

Barb if you have to see the line, then use packing tape both sides and you will be happy with the smoothness of the cut.

Did you get real BB (comes in 5 x 5 sheets) or the copycat birch ply from the big box store? A world of difference.

Should have called me Barb. You know I'm less than 20 miles away. We could have made a display that would have sold before the merchandise. lol

Ummmm "real" BB??? I went to where I found I could get it. These were 2x4 sheets. And I don't have your number, John I would love to have you over! I still have to create a stand for the large signs. Ken doesn't like these I told him to be quiet. Wasn't like he was coming up with ideas. He's good at criticizing, but a little short on what to do

You're gonna want to see my post in the Lobby asking for display shelf help. I can't take credit for the idea. It was on Etsy. I just figured I could make them just as well as pay someone $80 or whatever it was; why let them have all the fun of making them? Anyway, I couldn't find a pattern for them, and thanks to the fantastic people here, I got a pattern I could print and use.
