The scroll saw focus group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7-30pm in the Guild Hall, 38 Featherston Street, Palmerston North. The guild owns three scroll saws for teaching the craft.
Scroll sawing is the cutting of patterns into timber. This can include fretwork or intarsia. There are many projects that can be undertaken on a scroll saw in either wood or other media.
Learners start with very simple projects and then move on to more challenging ones, including intarsia. This is the cutting and the shaping of different woods to make a picture. One of the features of intarsia is in the use of different coloured timber to pick out the features in a picture.
