  • Professionals/Acceptable?

    I see so many conversations about what the "professionals" think or do and about what is "acceptable" or not that I wondered if maybe some of y ou more enlightened folks could set me straight on the definitions. What is a "professional" in this area (scrolling, intarsia, segmentation,etc)? How can some technique be "acceptable" or "unacceptable" if it works and who gets to decide?--the "professionals"?
    Please, lets not get to the point that we divide along lines like I have seen carvers do about the use of power tools vs hand tools or whether a person is a painter or an illustrator. Many artistic/hobby classifications have even developed "contests" (scrolling has too, I know) where "judges" evaluate all sorts of nitpicky points. Takes the pleasure right out of the hobby. My opinion.

    Moon, I totally agree with you. We should try to keep this hobby pleasureable for "everyone". Ray

      Profesionals

      I guess the true definition of professional is someone who gets paid but in scrolling I would like to think of the professionals as those who have been in the hobby long enough to offer sound advice.
      There are some outstanding scrollers in this forum. Some may use the hobby as a form of relaxation others may even make a living at it.
      Acceptable is a matter of choice, based upon your experience and your outlook.
      While it is perfectly acceptable to burp at the dinner table in some locales it is not acceptable in others.

      I do hope the members of the forum occasionally learn some things here. I also hope they have some laughs. The internet is not only a medium for learning but it creates its own subcultures too. All in all I find the forum a very rewarding experience.

            Depending on the size of the holes, it could be a candle holder, or something to hold round stock vertical while painting/staining it, or just something to puzzle you.

            I kind of like the last one, I may use that

            New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

            It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

            Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.
