Just after Christmas this year I bought myself a scroll saw. It was a really exciting purchase because I wanted one for a loooong time, but I was intimidated by such a ‘big tool’. I don’t know what I was thinking, my little baby is just like the kitten of tools. Nothing to AT ALL to be afraid of!
I’ve been sharing my projects on Instagram for a few weeks now, and thought it was time I shared them with you too!
I’ve been hesitant to officially share what I’ve been working on because I’m still learning the tricks of the trade myself. I am planning on putting together some scroll saw beginner tutorials, with what I’ve learned so far, and take out any fears you might have about using this power tool.
As you can see the scroll saw is perfect for making intricate cuts like these script words. I just love making them!
I’ve had a lot of questions on Instagram if I plan to sell my signs. That question is still a bit unanswered, I’m considering it… but each sign is hand stencilled, cut, sanded, painted, glued and nailed. Very time consuming, and then shipping from Canada is crazy town. But yes, considering.
I’m loving giving some of my leftover PPG Voice of Color paint a good home!
Mod Podging on glitter might just be one of my favourite techniques, who couldn’t use a little extra glam?
As far as scroll saws go, I just have an 18″ entry level machine, but this Dewlat or Delta scroll saws would be my first choice if I had a bigger budget.
This Nova Scotia sign was a labor of love, I might move to Utah or Colorado if I had to make too many of these!
You can’t lie, I know you’re smiling when looking at this next one. The profile of the lens is the best part!
You may remember this MAKE sign from my home office craft closet makeover.
And last by not least Mr. Bunny Fou Fou, all cute in his floral tuxedo.
I’d love for you to follow along with the hashtag #scrollingprettythings to see what I’m scrolling up next. PLEASE if you’re a scroller yourself use the hashtag so I can see what you’re working on too!Tags: Paint, Painted sign, script font, scroll saw, scrolling pretty things, signs, wood, wood crafts
