scroll saw


These bookmarks are made from cherry and the pierced designs are cut on the scroll saw. The only problem is they don't work with iPads or Kindles.

Three-leaf business card holder

Business card holder with three leaves scroll-sawn into the top.

One of my new offerings for the Calgary Retired Teachers Art Show in 2013 is a series of wooden holders for business cards.  The idea came from Charles Mac in an article in Canadian Woodworking and Home Improvement.  I was delighted with the idea because it permits me to use up many small pieces of scrap. The three-leaf card holder gave me a chance to practice my scroll-sawing skills and it seems to be one of the more popular designs.  These card holders sell for $20.00.




Pierced Lid Box

The pattern for the lid of this box came from a magazine. While it provides an interesting change, I don't think I have the patience to do a lot of these boxes because it takes more time to undo the scroll saw blade and rethread it than it does to do the actual sawing.  The body of the box was made from  a scrap of construction lumber which can show attractive colour sometimes.
