Well, I've achieved nothing of note since I got the scroll saw. I sometimes draw a wiggly line on a piece of scrap wood and try and follow it with the blade; a tedious way of making kindling :lol: I have a plans to build an electric mandolin and a guitar, but my woodworking skills are less than basic so I need to practice on small projects first.
I stand my saw on top of an old sideboard, maybe you could find a piece of old furniture to stand yours on!
It all takes time but you will arrive. May I suggest that you have a look at one of John Nelson's book "Scroll Saw Workshop" -I think. It has graded exercises and you actually make something. I was on my own learning to cut and I found this book very useful and get a good set of blades, the saw does not matter. You can always cut by hand.
Forget what I've just said, I've written rubbish. Just a thought, take the clamps to a garage, one man band type, talk nice to them and see if they have any ideas. I have done this with somethings and you may be surprised.
