Hand Cut Paper Cards on the Scroll Saw.

Using the method in this pattern book you can cut these (Boy/Girl) announcement cards up to twenty or more at a time. Using the sandwich stack cut method we can easily cut paper using Baltic birch plywood as the carrier. 

You can get razor sharp paper edges that look like they came off an expensive paper cutting machine. An advantage we have over those paper cutting machines is that we can cut multiples at once. If you need a box set of 25 cards then just make a stack of 25 and cut them out.

Here is a close up showing the edges of the paper cut right off the saw. Pretty impressive. I use a #2/0 or #1 blade for cleanest results. Make sure you are using high-quality card stock for the cards. I bought 12" X 12" sheets from Hobby Lobby's scrapbooking section. They were on sale for .39 a sheet. 

If the response is good to this project I will make more of these cards. The possibilitoes are unlimited. Let me know if you are interested.

Problem Solved:

Zhiyun Smooth-Q 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for Smartphone

I own two different brands of smartphone video camera stabilizers. I bout the DJI Osmo first. I paid $200 for it. I had a servo motor fail so I sent it in for repair. I needed a stabilize while it was in the shop so I bought the Zhiyun while I waited. Guess what? It is half the price and works every bit as good. If you are in the market for a video stabilizer I can recommend this one.
