- Use a sharp No. 2 or No. 4 'skip tooth' blade (about $24).
- Change blades when the sawn 'paper edge' appears slightly ragged.
- Select a medium or high speed and feed the work at a slow rate, pressing the wood firmly on the table as you saw.
- When choosing photos to sculpt, look for clearly outlined subjects so it's easy to follow the cutting line. Hair or clothing that blends into the background is difficult to cut.
