Step 1: Glue to Work Piece
After printing out your pattern, spray the back of the image with spray adhesive. I use 3m but others will work too. Press it onto your work piece.
Step 2: Drill Holes and Begin Cutting Out.
I use a small wood bit to make entry holes for my scroll saw. Make as many holes as you need.
Step 3: Work From the Centre Outwards.
I always try to work from the Centre outwards as its pretty delicate.
Step 4: Remove Pattern
After your all done cutting out the pattern, start removing the left over pattern. It can be difficult. I sometimes run my piece under hot water to help the glue release more easier.
Step 5: Completed Piece
With all the pattern removed you get to see the final piece. I'll leave it dry for a few days then clean up a few edges left from the scroll saw. Apply a nice dark stain then a few coats of polyurethane for a nice shine and protection.
