Scroll Saw Classes

IMG_9094 copyMr. M’s Workshop in Branson by Gaylen Montgomery:

I learned the art of Scroll Saw from the master wood cutter, Jim Adam, at the “Silver Dollar City Toy shop” near Branson in 1991. I enjoy the teaching aspect of woodworking, because I believe we should share what skills we may have so that others may enjoy it as well. I was a school teacher for 36 years. After retirement I worked at Sears where I demonstrated Scroll Saws in the store, and at home shows for 10 years. I have been teaching in Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa since 2009. I am honored to share my love for the craftsmanship of creative woodworking here to Branson.

Learn about the scroll saw:
1.Seven (7) Cutting Techniques that make your work look great.
2.Blades: types ,selection and use.
3.Saw speeds and wood selection.
4.Bevel cutting, Stack cutting, thin wall cutting, detail cutting, portrait cutting, name cutting , and other tips and tricks for smooth, and clean looking results.
