  • Pomeroy Cross question

    In the spring 2001 issue an article was published. "A Page From the History of Scrolling." I do not have the magazine, but borrowed the magazine and made the cross of which I posted a picture here. Can anyone give my any information on the origin of this cross ? I think the article said the origin was from the 1800's, but I am hoping for more information. (The 'S" in the cross resembles the dollar sign which brings comments usually). I found the article in the article index. By the way, I subscribed to the magazine later because it gave me so much information that I needed as a neophyte to scrolling. Thanks for any help.

        Wild shot trying to find pattern
        by Teacher
        My son is getting married and my wife fell in love with a pattern named "Sylvia's wedding cross". Apparently that design was done by a person who is no longer on this forum and it is rather an old one as far as I can tell through searching. From posts I have searched several have made it....

        Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

        My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...
