Default Working on my first compund cut project

I'm working on a cute little bow and if it turns out I will put it on a box or some thing. It was a pattern that is in the 2nd edition of the scroll saw work book. So far it's turning out real nice and I have 2 more cuts to make but our hair dresser came to do our hair so can't wait to get back in the shop. I'll post a picture when I get it done. I think this compound cutting will be fun. I using a scrap piece of poplar. Have a great day Fay

Not only is it fun but folks will wonder how its done. Making bows and ribbons for boxes really dresses up the box. Looking forward to seeing your work.

Fay, sounds like John Nelson's book. I used it to learn to scroll, and the pattern that you're using was the inspiration for my bows. It's a great pattern, and is really realistic looking.

What I did that was different was to separate the parts of the bow--the loops and tails--the way I made sugar paste bows for my cakes. That gives you a lot more options than when it's all one piece.

Have fun!

Default Here is my bow! First time too

I love it! I love it! I'm going to make more and once I get Carole's book I will try the different boxes in the book and pay more attention to the instructions. Sis loves the bow too. I just got done telling her we have to go to Home Depot so I can get some poplar wood, I found it a joy to cut. Any way. I need to put a finish on it and such and then I auditioned it on my shuttle box to get an idea how it will look. I can't believe I did my first compound cut! Happy dance, Happy dance! Have a great day Fay

I accept the compliment,,, Thank you for calling a senior citizen ( me ) a young lady. Makes me feel young. Got some wood today and a nice 1/4 in wood also to make some letter openers and things like that. Maybe even some ornaments for next Christmas. I bought some extra drill bits for drilling entry holes and got a angle guage so it will help. Other wise I have to look under the scroll saw table to see what the setting is so this guage will be great as I won't have to look under that table. I'll be able to see it. I might cut out a bowl tomorrow. I want to make a jig for the compound cutting. Steve Good has a pattern for one on his site and I downloaded it and will print it out and make it tomorrow. oooops.. I only bought 2 carriage bolts and needed 3 for the jig. I still have 2 left over from the ones I ordered but I will have to find them. Grrrr....They were only 57 cents each for the 6" ones. Have a great night Fay

The compound cutting jig I have only uses two carriage bolts. Can't imagine offhand why you might need three. Make sure you build the jig to accept as long a piece as you might cut.

As to senior citizen, you might still be younger than many of us!

Myself, I am 62.
