The projects on this page have been cut twice on the scroll saw.  They start with a blank that is square in height and width.  These dimensions are usually between 3/4" and 1 1/4".  Bigger and smaller pieces can be cut, but they get progressively more difficult.  A pattern is then placed on two adjacent sides.  The pattern is usually the same on both sides, but it can be different.  The pattern is cut on one of the sides, the piece is rolled to the other side with a pattern, and that is cut.  The final piece is then removed from the center of the block and finished.
