Need some tips and guidance - Scroll sawing
I notice there is no thread/forum on scroll sawing - any chance we can get one focused on that skill?
I know there are some excellent scrollers here (don't want to name names because I'm sure I'd leave someone out) and really need some guidance before I lose interest....
Anyway, I'm having difficulty getting proficient in scroll sawing. So, a few questions
How long would you all 'guestimate" it would take a newbie to become "proficient" (not expert) enough to be able to display their creations proudly - I'm not talking about selling. As it is right now, I don't even want to take pictures of the crap I'm doing
I've done 6 basic cut outs so far (from a book I have) - 4 simple bells and 2 simple trees (no inside cuts) - and not a one of them would I consider hanging on my wall or take a picture LOL!
I've been using 1/8" hardboard for the most part to practice with on medium to high speed (not all the way up) with an Olsen #5 skip tooth blade.
While they have gotten better, I still feel like I am extremely far from getting curves and specially angles cut well enough to display.
Thanks as always in advance
