Very cool.   I just have one question, if you don't mind... do you do any finishing to the edges of the acrylic after you've sawed it out?  Or does the electric scroll saw leave a clean enough edge that you don't have to?

Thank you!

eternallyeve, I'm not quite a speed demon. Almost! Each piece takes approximately 30-45 minutes to create.

Neigung, The scroll saw leaves a very finished edge as the acrylic is half cut, half melted away! It is not rough, and won't scratch the skin. There is usually some finishing involved when I made wooden silhouettes. But overall cutting wood is much easier.

Interesting... thanks for the info.  I ask because I've cut acrylic with a  jewellers saw and the edges come out quite rough, this may also be partly because the acrylic I used was thicker... but I can see how the friction of the electric saw would leave you with a nicer edge.
