Default compound scroll saw

Has anyone tried the compound saw patterns? I purchased the book by Sam Keener and the instructions are brief and I can't get them to turn out? Any help? Thanks

Just exactly what seems to be going wrong? Pretty much, you cut one side, Tape the pieces back on then cut the other side. Only thing I can figure from what info you've given is that you aren't getting the pieces properly aligned.

The patterns are designed to be folded onto two sides of the wood. Make sure you are using the pattern correctly. It works best if you saw the thinner side of the pattern first, doing this in one continuous cut. Make sure you tape the wood together after you cut out this one side just the way it is, dont take anything apart. Now cut the wide side of the pattern, and after you are done, take the wood all apart and inside is the compound pattern come to life.
Good Luck

One other thing - make sure the adjacent sides on you block of wood form a perfect 90 deg anble with one another or the side and top profile wont line up properly and you'll get a skewed cut

:-/Help! I'm also having a problem with Sam Keener 3-D patterns!! Other patterns have the 'fold' line on them. Mr. Keener's does not!? Do I need to make 2 copies of pattern Or just find the most likely place for the fold?? I would appreciate a clarified answer!? Thanks a bunch!!!
