Default New scroller questions

I just got a scroll saw and haven't gotten beyond practice yet. I find this pattern very appealing but I have questions. I assume you cut out the black areas and leave the white. Some white areas are totally isolated where the petals, leaves and stem overlap so they cannot stay in place. I'm sure I am missing something and asking a dumb question. I would appreciate information as to how this pattern is cut.
Thanks,
Phil

Phil,

There's no such thing as a dumb question. If you're wondering about something, probably a bunch of others are as well.

I would have to print the patten out to see if there are any 'orphaned' sections that would fall out when cut. Sometimes they aren't that easy to see on the screen. I think the easiest way to handle them would be to shorten the petals as he did in a few cases, or shorten the stem piece to leave a bridge.

Either way, there will be some delicate sections on this cutting, so mounting it on a contrasting backer board will be best. If any pieces are cut free, a little glue will hold them in place on the back board.

I can't wait to see some of your cuttings.

If you need inspiration, check out Steve Good's site. He has patterns for all skill levels.

Scrollsaw Workshop

There are a bunch of other scroll saw sites, and youtube videos to learn from, but nothing beats diving into projects and experimenting with different blades and techniques.

Thanks, Doug, for answering my question. I wondered if your explanation was the case or if I was just missing something obvious. I appreciate your encouragement. I have been to Steve Good's site along with some others. I am using my saw for inside cuts on small projects, etc. but would like to try some real scrolling in the future.
Thanks again.
Phil

Phil,

You are exactly correct on all parts, questions and "orphaned" sections.

As a pattern designer I enjoy designing simple and elegant. As a scroller I find that even though I spent hours designing a pattern there always seems to be something I missed.

Take your time as you scroll the pattern so you can find all of my mistakes.
