Sanding reverse side entry holes:

This is just a quick tip to make using your scroll saw just a little easier to use.
For most patterns you will need to drill interior holes to pass the scroll saw blade through.
It is common to have some tear out on the back side of the drilled hole. These little splinters of wood can catch on the hole of your scroll saw table and be a nuisance. They can even cause you to not be able to continue a cut until you slightly lift the board.
Make a habit of doing a light sanding of the back of the board before you head to the scroll saw. It just takes a quick sanding to knock off the splinters.
I keep a sanding block close to the drill press so I don't forget.
