You might think that soft pine would be easier to cut with a scroll saw on the surface. However, many hardwoods are much easier to cut. The resins in the pine tend to make the sawdust stick to everything and make it more difficult for the blade to clear the cut.

Cutting the tractor was slow going with my scroll saw. However, the time saved in sanding makes it worth the effort. I would much rather cut slowly than sand.

The line in the pattern's center splits the tractor in half so the two pieces can be painted and glued back together. I only use one type of finish, so this cut is finished.
