Practice this basic technique to produce crisp sharp corners Step-by-step photos by Ben Fink and Scott Kriner
Cutting tight corners is an acquired skill and it intimidates many new scrollers.
Some scrollers turn in the waste area or approach the corner from multiple directions.
However, these techniques will not work with some designs.
With a little practice, you can master cutting sharp corners without cutting into the waste wood.
When you first turn on your scroll saw, practice cutting stair steps or a city skyline in a piece of scrap wood. This gets you warmed up and ready to create crisp sharp corners.
