Scrollsaw Stand

Elevate your benchtop scrollsaw to new heights with this sturdy shop-made stand. It provides solid support directly beneath the saw to help minimize vibration.

We recommend that you elevate the scrollsaw table to a comfortable height, typically at elbow level. So, you may have to adjust the height of the uprights (C) slightly. We dry-clamped our pieces together before drilling the mounting holes to verify a comfortable working height.

For additional strength, drill the mounting holes, and drive the lag screws through the uprights (C) and feet (D) and into the 3/4" dowels in the mating pieces.
