As the patterns you create for the scroll saw become more complicated the errors get more difficult to see on paper. I build a prototype of the project out of scrap or inexpensive material first to catch these errors.
In todays video I will build a prototype of a pattern I just designed in Corel Draw. The pattern is a model of an old car. The pattern has several pieces that need to be assembled together to complete the car. In this video we will make sure all the parts fit as expected and there are no bad surprises.
If you would like to build this project the link to the free downloadable pattern is included at the bottom of this article. Watch the video for tips on cutting the pattern.
I will complete the prototype tomorrow and post a picture so you can see what the car looks like in its finished state.
The project would look more impressive built with several different species of wood. You might also consider looking online for pre-manufactured spoke wheels. It would require 2 inch diameter wheels. The wheels in the pattern are very basic but with a little sanding and shaping they will look ok.
Enjoy the video and look for a picture of the finished prototype tomorrow.
