    It has been almost a month since he has been on!

    Yes we do need his wisdom at times.

      I was just asking Sue the other day if she had seen any of his posts....

      I live in a community where "elders" such as Mooner have a great deal of respect and value. Hope he returns.

        Hello Gang--
        I appreciate your concern and kind comments. I am fine--just lazy. I have "lurked" a few times lately and found that there was nothing that required any comments from me. You folks have been covering all the bases without my "sage" advice. I have been rather busy this summer with some woodworking projects that really have nothing to do with scrollsawing. I have been making wooden jewelery boxes from a book called Building Beautiful Boxes with Your Bandsaw, by Lois Keener Ventura. I am still working on several of them and have had to let the old RBI rest for awhile. It has also been unbearably hot here in my part of Texas (over 100 the last week or so) and a "senior" like myself has to slow down (no matter what he might think he can do). Also, my scrolling projects of late have been, as Marcel pointed out, a bit too "artsy" and of a "mature" subject matter. Before anyone jumps on me, I DO NOT mean anyone here is immature. It is just that some of my projects aren't "family oriented"--whatever that means. By the definitions we use today, the Sistine Chapel ceiling by Michaelangelo would be pornographic and not fit for family viewing. Don't get me started. BobD and Sharon would have a cat if I posted pictures of some of my latest segmentation work.
        By the way, Evie, that website blog or whatever is BS. Unfortunately the Internet is not "idiot-proof" and you can find plenty of other garbage "on-line" so don't let it bother you.
        Well, back to box-making and keeping cool. Once again, thanks for the concern.

          Hi Moon!

          I am just on my way out the door for a soccer game but I had to say good morning and I am glad to hear you're fine - and busy.

          Of course I'd like to see the scroll projects you are working on. I also wanted to let you know, if you still want the one pattern you asked about some time back - pm me.

          take care

              Hi Old Mooner.
              Good to see you back and that you are having a little change of pace. I have made most all of the bandsaw boxes out of the very same book you are using. I still consider it a form of scrolling only in a bigger way. It sure is a nice change from fretwork and gives more variety our passion for woodworking. Whether they are for gifts or for sale you will find that those bandsaw boxes will find a new home almost as fast as you can make them. I have made dozens of them and have not got one left to my name and havn't had much time to make more because I have added lathe turning to my WW interests like so many scrollers have in recent years and I am trying to incorporate scrolling into some of my turnings. Havn't figured out how to incorporate scrolling into my bandsaw boxes yet apart from the little handles on them.
              Glad to hear you are keeping busy and having fun.

              The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us

                Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.

                Hi - This is my first visit to the forum in about 3 weeks and I was surprised to see the font size so large after checking on two different browsers on my PC, namely Chrome and Edge. Both my browsers are set to 100% view and other sites look fine on my 27" monitor. Also the forum looks far too...

                Linda your goal was accomplished - to do something you wanted and get it in front of lots of people plus you won a ribbon. Great job!
