Scroll Saw Auxiliary Table
Most of the work I do on my scroll saw involves fine cuts on small pieces. So it’s very important for the workpiece to slide easily across the table. The problem is most scroll saw tables aren’t very smooth. I’ve tried waxing the table and found that the wax wears off pretty quickly and leaves a residue on my projects.
To solve the problem, I made a smooth-sliding auxiliary top out of a piece of Plexiglas, as in the drawing above. The Plexiglas is the same size as the saw table and has a hole only a bit larger than the blade to provide more workpiece support. I attached it with spray adhesive.
