Susan,
It looks great! A note about scrollsawing: You can still cut with the blade in upside down, I've done it and not figured it out in two hours! Upside down, it lifts your wood with every cut and works you to death, but it still cuts. You might check that.

Looks good to me. Maybe you just need to relax when you're operating the saw. It's just a piece of wood and can be replaced if you mess it up. Chill out, have a cup of tea and enjoy the process.Cheers

Susna (boy that saw must have really got to you),
Since we live nearby, you are welcome to come over the shop and use my Scroll Saw! Bring Your Running Shoes.!!!

Just the right downward pressure.
just the right feed rate.
And the right blade selection.
get these three right and scroll sawing can be enjoyable.

Have you tried A spiral blade. They are great when you have to turn the workpiece alot.

Wade,
That old saw sat in the lobby of a motor repair shop for years. I tried to buy it from the owner many times and he would not sell it. One day he called me and told me he was selling the business. Of course I asked again to buy the saw. He said maybe we could work something out. He showed up at the shop with the saw and said the only thing he wanted for the saw was one of my Harley Santas and a pretty one for his wife. He was going to take Santas I already had carved and I asked him to wait a week or so. I put a lot of extra time and detail in those two santas and really enjoyed carving them. Every time I look at that old saw I think about how much I enjoyed carving those two Santas and the emtions that exchanged when he and his wife picked them up at the shop.

Darn I find myself sitting here typing this with a happy tear in my eye.
Thanks Sue, this thread brought back a happy memory!
Goody

Susan-i don't consider myself a scroll sawer but i can not see anything wrong with your your stands and besides your eye should be drawn to that excellent santa ornament and any self percieved errors will be overlooked.

What a sweet little stand Susan. Nicely done! Scroll sawing takes skill and practice, just like any other woodworking method. It teaches you patience and a delicate touch. Keep up the good work, and don't get frustrated.

Be happy in your work!!! Talking

Bob
