What the heck is it?

This project is something I have been wanting to make for some time. It's a jig that helps me do a very specific job. I do this job on almost every scroll saw project I complete.

I tend to have a bit of tendinitis in my elbow and my shoulder aches a little also. I built this project to allow me to do this job and not have to put up with my elbow hurting.

Can you guess from the picture what it is? Watch the video below to find out. Maybe you will want to build one for yourself. Then again maybe you will think this is the dumbest thing you have ever seen.

William Day's Scrollwork Desk Cabinet.

Here is wonderful project from William Day. This writing desk is nearly 7 feet tall. Now that's one large scroll saw project. William says if you want to give this one a try to make sure your patience level is high. You won't build this one in a weekend.

He wanted a nice challenge and he found the pattern for this amazing project at Wildwood Designs. They also sell the components necessary to complete the project.
