Made from an old bread board this is for My mum to give to a friend at Christmas. She just said "can you make something for my friend for Christmas I'll leave it up to you" she is in her 90's bless her, luckily I know that her friend is quite religious.

It is a Steve Goods pattern but I have incorporated a clock so had to do some slight changes to the centre where the clock sits.

That's excellent David. What blade did you use with the scroll saw and which machine do you have?

It's Derek by the way Malcolm.

If I remember correctly I used some where in the region of a 20tpi blade can't remember the number as unfortunately even though I keep the different blades separate I forgot to mark them when I put them into the rack I keep them in. The machine I have is a Rexon 16" very simular to THIS ONE

Thanks Derek,

sorry about the slip up on the name. I must try some thicker wood on our scrollsaw, which is a 16" Record. I have only used thinner stock before, but you seem to know what you are doing with such good work.

Hi Malcolm, a couple of mates and I are in the middle of making some 350ish figures for our cathedral, these are for a teaching technique for young children, it is based on the tale of Pilgrims Progress.

We are using a variety of woods for this all around the 22mm mark. I bought my blades from Hobbies as the were cheap and Hobbies are a well known name, they list the blades in the order of the thickness of wood you want to cut.

I got some which cut up to 50mm and they were way ahead of those for thinner stock.

Try Googling Alwayshobbies, or for better deal good old EBay.

Thanks Ron,

We did order some Dutch blades that we are using, but have very little experience of scrollsaw work and was curious as to what Derek had actually used for his lovely cross work. Possibly some 1" oak?

With the very little knowledge my son and I have, we just plod along, but are trying to learn more as we go. My son has done some nice scrollsaw work and my use has only been cutting the back of bandsaw boxes with the fine blade, to house the hidden drawer.

Alex
