Part 1: Hey Woodworkers, Wanna Talk Live on Skype?

07-15-2012 01:58 AM by TripleB | 1 comment »

I’m contemplating setting up “Live” weekly chats via Skype conference calls on my Scroll Saw blog at This is open to anyone that loves woodworking, not just Scrollers, but it will probably be a lil Scroll saw intensive! If you don’t know what Skype is, briefly, it is a Free online program that allows people to talk to each through their computers. You can also do group webcam and conference calls (Web Cam is not necessary, so don’t worry if y...

Part 2: Something Different For Me, Intarsia?

07-21-2012 03:26 AM by TripleB | 1 comment »

This pattern came out of the book by Kathy Wise, “Intarsia, Woodworking For Beginners”. My Nephews birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and he loves Trains, so I thought I would give this a go. This is my first attempt at anything that resembles Intarsia, even though I don’t really consider this Intarsia, more segmentation even though it did come out of an Intarsia book, so not sure what to call it. Here are some more pictures of it. The woods I used were...

A good friend and I were doing one of our very frequent Think Tanks (sounds better than just talking) and we wanted to do something a little different than just typical scroll saw fretwork style cuttings. Basically we came up with an idea to make typical fretwork a bit more exciting. Simply by overlaying shaped pieces of wood on top of a portrait style piece of fretwork. We decided that I would come up with a pattern and She would do the hard work of cutting them out and making the pieces, th...

Part 4: Sometimes even Brain Farts can work out!

I’m not one that necessarily follows directions, I typically like to do my own thing, even with patterns. But I did have all intentions of doing this pattern the correct way, it simply didn’t happen! I recently purchased some patterns from Sheila Landry Designs and was very anxious to start cutting them out, perhaps a bit too anxious! One of the patterns I bought from her was the self framing Sun n’ Moon pattern (Not sure that’s what she calls it, but it is what I c...

Part 5: How To Align Your Scroll Saw Blade (Video)

02-06-2013 04:29 AM by TripleB | 7 comments »

Had a discussion with a friend today about easy ways to align your scroll saw blade to the table. Surprisingly, It was a lot more difficult to explain than I thought it would be, so I figured I’d just make a quick video and show the process instead. This process is nothing new, but I’m sure there are a few out there that might not know how to do it this way so I wanted to show you as well, just in case! BobScroll Saw Forum
