Scroll saw and fretwork vector patterns
This category of our site is dedicated to scroll saw patterns. In it you will find not only individual patterns suitable for scroll saw woodworking techniques, but also scroll saw projects for making boxes, shelves, decorative items etc.
The scroll saw technique for cutting out wood patterns is named after the scroll saw machine which is due to its very narrow blades most suitable for cutting curved contours in wood. This technique can also be found under the name of fret-cutting.
Since scroll saw patterns are very similar to stencil patterns, we recommend you to have a look at the category of stencil designs on our website where you can find more interesting patterns for your projects.
There are four ways to cut the scroll saw patterns that are offered to you here:
- manually, using a coping saw or fretsaw;
- using a scroll saw or jigsaw machine;
- using a CNC laser cutter;
- if you do not have any of these machines, or do not intend to do the cutting yourself, find a company that renders CNC laser cutting services, scale your patterns in the desired dimensions and send them the files to help them cut.
The most suitable types of wood for scroll sawing are: Spanish cedar, red cedar, American (white) Holly, black walnut, satin wood, tulip wood, ebony, bird's eye maple, rosewood, mahogany, cherry, olive, oak, birch... You can use either solid wood or plywood.
In this category you can find only scroll saw patterns, and to all who are interested in scroll saw techniques we recommend a variety of specialized websites, books on scroll saw techniques or scroll saw tutorials on YouTube.
A large number of scroll saw patterns and ideas can also be found in our category Scroll Saw 3D parts.
