A Virginia Scroll Saw Project




About: Enjoy making things and learning new techniques. Can't do it without my shop puppies!

Here is how I made a Virginia state outline to be added to our other states. Quick and easy, but take your time and use all safety gear.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Print Out Your State Outline

If its large, just tape the pieces together with clear tape.

Step 2: Lay Blue Tape on Your Wood

This will protect the wood from the glue. Makes clean up easier.

Step 3: Use Spray Adhesive and Slowly Lay the Paper in Place

Its easier to start at on end and work your way down to avoid bubbles/wrinkles.

Step 4: Get to Scrolling!

Take your time and go slow, especially in the tight turns. Don't forget safety gear.

Step 5: Remove Paper/tape

Reveal your project!

Step 6: Finish and Hang

Apply your favorite finish and put on the wall! I've used hangars and nails in the past but really like 3M stickies these days. No holes and easy removal.
