Here are some links to other websites that may be useful to anyone interested in scroll sawing, wood intarsia or just woodwork in general.
I’ll keep adding to this page as I come across more useful websites.
Help and Advice
UK Workshop is a website with how-to’s, videos, and reviews. But the real gems of this site are its forums discussing various aspects of woodwork. There are separate forums for Hand Tools, Finishing, Wood Turning, Scroll Saw and more. It is my daily “go to”, for updates on other woodworkers new project and advice.
Scrollsaw Workshop – Steve Good
Steve Good’s scrollsaw workshop was the first site I discovered when I started out scrollsawing and it offers great advice and videos for anyone starting out as well as a load of free scrollsaw patterns.
Reaganite 71’s Blog
Reaganite 71’s blog does seem to include some fairly random subjects but also has a lot of useful information and advice on scrollsawing.
The Wood Database
This website lists every wood available (well it sure looks that way) with photos and descriptions to help to identify wood as well as information about its properties.
I’ve used Hobbies for both wood and scroll saw blades.
Axminster supply a wide range of woodworking tools and machines as well as woodworking supplies such as wood finishing products and blades. I tend to buy my scroll saw blades here as I particularly like the Pegas blades.
As well as the free patterns on the Steve Good website mentioned above, there are a number of websites offering premium patterns either to download or delivered by post.
Sheila Landry Designs
Sheila Landry Designs has a very large selection of scroll saw patterns – mainly fretwork. The patterns are available for immediate download once purchased.
More related to general woodwork but lots of useful ideas at the WoodArchivist website is a great resource for patterns for all sorts of things from workshop jigs to furniture
Here are some of the Youtube video channels that I have found useful, interesting or just plain entertaining –
Rag ‘n’ Bone Brown
Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal
I’ve mentioned Stumpy Nubs in some of my blog posts. His delivery style may be a bit grating for some UK viewers but his videos are useful and informative – Stumpy Nubs on Youtube. He also has an extensive website at – stumpynubs.com
