SAC-100: Intro to Scroll Saw Basics
About this Class
A scroll saw requires you to have a technique in order to cut the wood. To create the curved cuts, you cannot put a fence on it to help you follow a straight line. The beginner class will teach the techniques necessary to make these cuts.
In this class, you will learn how to follow a straight and curved line. It will teach you the most important thing, and that is proper blade selection. We will show how to cut wood, plastic, soft metals, and other natural materials. Students will all have a chance for hands-on practice.
You will learn about the skills necessary to create puzzles, art pieces, and carve names or words with the scroll saw. Best of all, you take home what you make!
