So I have been doing a fair bit of woodworking of late. Earlier this summer I was shown/taught how to use a scroll saw. I immediately took to it; my “teacher” built my confidence saying I was a “natural”. Not long afterwards I went ahead and bought a medium-range (price-wise) saw with a stand.
I also picked up a nice flex-arm lamp and magnifier…makes it much easier to see what you’re working on. Lastly, I added a variable speed foot pedal. This makes the saw operate very similar to a sewing machine in that I can control the speed of the blade…or cut the power altogether by taking my foot off the pedal.
You may have realized through many of my previous posts, I often work in my shop (garage) in my underwear or a speedo. The morning I produced these photos and video I was wearing some of my favorites: Stafford white briefs…tighty whities!!
Below is a demonstration video of me doing a quick, very-rough project as well as a few still images. All the way down are a few snapshots of some other of my creations.
I’ve done one other woodworking in tighty whities post with video. You can see it here: Making a Cribbage Board in Tighty Whities
