This is the plate of my Scroll saw. What I am going to do for this project is I am going to cover it with a couple sheets of white paper and a playing card. I have a couple of reasons for this. First is I don’t want any small pieces I will be cutting to fall through. Which in actuality there is not small pieces per say, rather the little ends of the “puzzle pieces” .
