If anyone is interested in old scrollsaw patterns, 1920's, I am selling some on Ebay. Search for Scroll Saw Pattern or Fretwork Pattern.

Thanks

I guess fretwork is associated with the patterns that require inside cuts to produce the pattern verses scroll work which does not require drilling holes to perform inside cuts. Think of fretwork like lace. The patterns I am selling are victorian type work. They consist of shevles, plant stands, boxes, mirrors, picture frames etc.

??? Dusty, I am not an accomplished scroll sawyer but I have seen a lot of patterns for scroll saw that require drilling holes. I always thought that fret saws were the manual version of the scroll saw. I would like to get the opinions of those who do scroll saw/fret saw work to clear this up, though.

Capt'n,

Fretwork is the term used to describe the cuts out of the center of the work thus leaving a border around the design. fret saws are the same as coping saws with a deeper frame so you can reach deeper toward the center of the work. Scroll saws apre simply saws with a very thin blade for cutting intricate work. I believe the term used to apply to hand powered saws of this type as well. I have read European woodworking articles and they seem to commonly refer to 'fretting' whereas over here we seem to refer to everything as scrolling. Least ways that's my understanding of it. :

Fret vs. scroll vs. band saw...? I use my scroll saw for all blind holes that require drilling a starting hole, such as love spoons and decorative panels (pierced relief). I band saw the outer edges of these blanks because it's faster and the control and finish is good enough. I've used my scroll saw to go back and clean up some open areas, but only because it's more convenient than my band saw. Fret work seems to be a type of work, not a process, so you could do fret work with a scroll saw, a laser, a coping saw or even a spiral saw. There's a lot of 'scroll saw' work and patterns that have no blind holes that require a scroll or coping saw.
