Wednesday Working – Scroll Saw Train

I have been working on my quilting project, but nothing worth taking a picture. I have finished cutting a scroll saw project. This one was started last year and I’ve just not had the time to work on it, but now with winter taking away yard work and my brother doing better I got a good block of time to finish this:

This is a pattern I saw online. It’s a 11×8.5 inches. The project is cut out of 1/4 junk plywood I had and this was stack cut so I got two pictures for one set of cuts. The next step is to frame these and put a backer panel on it. Then it will be ready for a gift or hanging on my wall.

That’s it for this week. Next week I should have some progress on my table runner so until then, if you need me, I’ll be in the shed vacuuming up the dust.

    So you won’t be glossing the wood before framing?


  3. I’ve done a bit of scroll saw work, so I recognize the time and patience and skill you put into this project. Love it!


  4. This came out really nice! I find that when cutting thinner wood, stack-cutting is the only way to go. Even if you just put scrap wood behind the piece. Otherwise, there is so little resistance that the blade just slides through things with less control. Your train came out really awesome! Be sure to post a photo of it framed and with a backer. 🙂

    Trying to picture a “scroll saw”. Is it a vertical stationary blade where you move the wood instead of the saw as you cut? Either way, this is patience I don’t have!

    The old railway train is marvellous! It would definitely make somebody a lovely present, especially if he was a Casey Jones fan.

  10. That’s it? I couldn’t do that scroll work in a month of Sundays. My husband and I added a latch to our gate and it took three tries! Beautiful work!

    I love Scroll Saw projects. My friend, Mark, made me a 3 wooden cross clock. Sadly it broke after he stopped making them. I love your craftsmanship! Good job 🙂

    An intricate piece for a saw of any kind, it seems to me. I know nothing about saws.
