Scrollsaw Artistry by Gary Lucas

Gary Lucas of TimberWorksIndy sent us these great photos of his awesome work.

I am a scroller who uses Rapid Resizer to change the size of the patterns I cut. I also design some of my own work on Rapid Resizer like revising my shop clock (the lettering) as shown.

I did the lettering for the sunburst, and submitted it in a contest at my local Woodworking Club, Central Indiana Woodworkers ( It was selected, among others, to be displayed at our booth in the upcoming Woodworking show in Indianapolis at the State Fair Grounds 2-1 thru 2-3 of 2019. 

I have enclosed a picture of the scrolling area of my Woodshop. I have 2 Dewalt scrollsaws. One is set up to be taken to shows. It will be used by myself and other members at the upcoming show to cut puzzles to be given away. The other Dewalt saw remains in the shop

Another scroll saw is an RBI with 26 inch cutting depth, Because I used a flat blade, I needed this increased depth  of 26 inches to cut these two projects. 

I am looking into using Rapid Resizer to transfer photos into patterns that can be cut. 

On the attached photos I purchased the plans, which were the wrong dimensions for what I wanted. So I used Rapid Resizer to resize the plans, and hand cut them in mahogany.
