Used the same method and the last but this one has the single swag. Cutting the rings 3/8” thick I got a fairly good match up with this one. Future plans are for a complete Perspex (plexiglass) bowl and a corian and Perspex project and hopefully they will be successful.

You are getting too smart for your Boots, Bob.

Excellent job and great looking result. Well done.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very interesting Bob. I have made many different bowls on the Scroll saw but have never thought of mixing wood with plexiglass the way you have. If you don’t already know, you might want to look into the Ring Master cutting machine. I don’t have one, but several friends do and it makes very fast work of cutting those rings without a lot of sanding needed.

Thanks for the comments, just something new I attempted. Larry I have looked up the Ring Master on the net, they don’t seem to be available in Aus, but I like the challenge of the scroll saw. Thanks for the info.
