In this first episode, I talk about patterns, spray adhesives, drilling pilot holes in the work, blades, and easy pattern removal without tearing up your work.
Here are some links you might find useful if you're interested in scroll sawing and making intricate heirloom projects:
Rick's page was invaluable to me when I started scrolling. Rick is a master fretworker and it shows. There's a frame on the left side of the site that has info links on choosing saws, blades, saw reviews, SCROLLING TIPS, shop tips, & even pricing and selling your work.
Wildwood Designs has a massive assortment of fretwork projects from beginner to advanced and supplies as well.
