I've been wanting a scroll saw for awhile, so when I saw this Instructable, you can probably guess what I did. Squealed like a little girl! Yes, it's possible to convert an old sewing machine into a scroll saw. Bongodrummer shows us how to do it, and it's not that difficult either. A great resource for cast-off sewing machines is Craigslist and FreeCycle, of course, but secondhand stores are loaded with them too. Oftentimes they're in sewing machine cabinets, which, by the way, make EXCELLENT laptop tables. Don't believe me? Snag a copy of Make It! Secondhand Chic and see how I did it.
