A scroll saw consists of a narrow blade mounted vertically in a frame and operated with an up-and-down motion, used for cutting curved and ornamental designs. The fineness of its blade means it can cut very tight curves and small details. It also allows you to start a cut from inside the material rather than from the edge, by drilling a hole and dropping the blade through.
