Saw Wood Art
Here you can buy or order our pieces made by us using a Fret
Scroll Saw. We did use the EBAY system but find a bit heavy
handed. If you would like to order directly or have special
requirements just contact us .
Scrolling is a rapidly increasing hobby and with many new
saws available at low money it is within most budding artists
reach. Although saying that it is very easy to be dissapointed
without any training or buying the wrong or inadequate machine.
We run training courses for beginners here in France where
you can experience our eco living and wonderful countryside.
A scroll saw is a electric or pedal-operated saw that is
useful for cutting intricate curves in cases where a jigsaw
or coping saw is not appropriate. It is capable of creating
curves with edges. It is somewhat similar to a band saw, but
unlike band saws, in which the saw blade is a continuous loop,
scroll saws use saw blades similar to those of coping saws
and operate through a quick reciprocating up and down motion.
A scroll saw has two main advantages when compared to a band
saw. The first is that the blade can be removed and placed
in situ through a pre-drilled starting hole. This feature
allows interior cutouts to be made without creating an entry
slot for the blade through the edge of the workpiece. Second,
a scroll saw can cut significantly more intricate curves.
Many different brands of scroll saws are on the market today.
Notable ones include Excalibur (made in Taiwan), RBI (made
in the USA), Hegner (made in Germany), Eclipse (made in the
USA), and DeWalt (originally made in Canada, but now made
in Taiwan). There are also a number of less expensive scroll
saws manufactured in Asia, including those from Delta, Dremel
(Bosch), Craftsman, Ryobi, Diamond and others.
