To make this heart shaped candy dish you will need to tilt the table of your scroll saw to produce a bevel cut. The wood for the bowl in the picture is 1 1/4" thick and I used an angle of 1 1/2" degrees.
The angle will vary depending on the thickness of the wood you use. Practice the correct angle by test cutting quarter sized circles in scraps of the same stock. You want to be able to push the plug out about half way. To make the bowl deeper decrease the angle. To make it more shallow increase the angle.
There are patterns for two sized dishes. The big pattern will make a dish about 8" wide like the one in the picture above.
