    That's one of those questions that's hard to answer. You might consider yourself a beginner and others would consider you an expert. When you feel you have the confidence to move up in difficulty, you have advanced to the intermediate or advanced level. You're question asks about woodworking which covers a broad range. Some people are experts with a scrollsaw and beginners on a lathe and vice versa. Probably the easiest defination would be that if people want to buy your projects, you are no longer a beginner.
    Below are pictures of the first and second projects my boss did on my scrollsaw. She does have her Masters degree in Art, but had never used a scrollsaw before. I had her do the first lesson in The Scrollsaw Workbook and she went to these: The cross was her first. I couldn't rotate it and resize it without losing the quality.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      your right woodworking does cover alot more range of things than I was thinking lol . Well I havent sold anything as of yet but I havent really tried to either,still trying to figure out the pricing, but I have moved a few steps up in doing the more difficult projects . both of those are very nice work and very well done .


      Thank you for the help

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

            Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
