Embarking on a woodworking project can be rewarding, filled with creativity and the satisfaction of creating something tangible. However, as any woodworker knows, each project comes with its unique set of challenges. In this blog post, we delve into the journey of crafting the second car off the scroll saw, exploring the intricacies of the process and the valuable lessons learned along the way.

Woodworking often involves dealing with knots, those natural imperfections that add character to the material. I confess to usually overlooking tiny pin knots, but this particular one was different – large and seemingly prone to coming out. I had to recut this one because I discovered a bad knot after cutting. I did not check the back of the wood when I was attaching the pattern. I can fix knots so they do not come out, but the additional time and expense are worth the effort. There are a few projects where the knot is part of the design that look great. Toys are not one of these.
