FlounderFillet5 Posted August 23, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 23, 2014 Hello, I am interested in purchasing some wood to do some scroll saw work with but I figured I might as well get wood in useful dimensions for this hobby as well. What are useful dimensions for extra wood in this hobby? thickness 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" etc and as for width is the wider the better so if I can get like 7"+ wide sheets then that would the way to go? I intend on getting a Byrnes saw before too long and possibly a thickness sander if that helps with this question. Next question: what species of wood would you guys recommend, I know there are a ton of different woods that are useful in this hobby but if you were just going to buy a few, which would you go with? maple, basswood, cherry, mahogany, poplar, walnut and various others are commonly available in my area and where I am looking to purchase online. Thanks for your responses to these very broad questions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
