Cutting With a Scroll Saw

This video covers scroll saw cutting techniques for straight lines and sharp corners. For best results when cutting with a scroll saw, Paul Schürch, a Santa Barbara, California, furniture maker and teacher, says to work in a series of short pushes, making small corrections as you go, and to pay attention to the kind of pressure you’re putting on the blade. He demonstrates those techniques in this video.
