Scroll saw compound cut clamp.

I had an email today from a friend in Ohio. She needed a clamp for cutting compound cut scroll saw patterns. I had been planning to make another one for myself for a while so I made two. I took pictures of the construction to share with those of you who would like to try your hand a compound cut scroll saw patterns.

The pdf has limited instructions so I put together a slideshow video and talk you through the assembly.

A list of materials is included in the pdf. I purchased everything at Home Depot.

The last page of the pdf has a story stick to layout the holes to drill.

This clamp adds a feature I did not have on my older clamp. One of the bolts is adjustable in a slot. This gives you better clamping. The clamp accommodates a 5 1/4" blank of wood.

I'll design another compound cut pattern this week for those of you who have never seen the technique. I'll demonstrate the project in a video.
