I used the scroll saw today to cut a mini guitar/ukelele out of some scrap pine. I think it will be a clock, or one side of a small shelf? I haven’t used the scroll saw in a few months and I wanted to practice my cuts. I will be cutting the half moon shape for the gout bench handle with the scroll saw and I wanted to see if the saw was up for a 1″ thick piece of wood. It twas a productive day, I made progress on the mosaic for the gout bench handle too. I am gluing up some squares into a checkerboard shape with a rectangle border. Once it is dry I will cut out the half moon shape, and attach it to the handle. Once the handle is done the gout bench just needs one more round of sanding, some oil and final assembly. I have more scrap wood, my mom connected me with another woodworker who had scrap to pass along. It’s nice to get a variety of scrap wood. It’s fun using wood from so many sources and it ensures that no two pieces will ever be quite the same, and I like that.
