Hello all, I need all the help I can get, I just retired this year, I laid brick since
5/1/57 and I am now 70 yrs old, and I want to spend my golden years looking over my scroll saw. In the last year I have filled my garage with tools and wood, I think I got every kind of tool there is. I built some bird houses and some chairs and tables, and Kitchen cabinets for my house, now I want to
get in to scrolling I bought a magazine and got a pile of patterns, and tips,
I made a couple of compound xmas oraniments, that was neat. then I made a cat and a horse and I put them in a frame. The frame was harder to make than the cutouts, Anyways what I need to know now is about blades and wood, I been using 1/4" plywood, I don't like that stuff it falls apartI think I need a solid wood, so I need some help Thanks for any thing to make scolling more fun......

Hi Pops

Be sure to check out the item on the forum called
Wood Scrolling
http://www.routerforums.com/wood-scrolling/

Read all the items that are posted,the one about Mike's web site is a great one on blades.
I sent off for the sample pack and it was/is great set of blades.
The number 3 (in the pack) will cut 3/4" oak/walnut like butter and it will be so clean it will blow your mind.
And you're right about plywood it sucks,If you have a good band saw resaw some stock then glue it back up to what every size you want to use then use it and you be a happy scroller . :)
