  • Very Happy Father's Day!!!

    My daughter delivered a 7lb 7 1/2oz, 20 1/2" granddaughter at 12:47pm today. Both are doing great! Delivery was done drug-free! She was AWESOME! Now I get to enter Grandpa status! Photo was taken at about 2 hours old. Now to get some much needed sleep. This is the new addition to our scroll family!

            Congrats Tim,

            Now it's payback time

            You get to spoil the kid and then send her back to the parents,

            You get to buy/make noisy toys and send her back to the parents...

            Just kidding, but I do wish she lives a healthy life and makes her parents & grandparents proud.

            DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                  Told my daughter that I was going to give Charity Jean my backup saw to use (when she gets older) and she said "What about me?"
                  Got some sleep finally. WE are looking forward to the new grandparent title and hope to live up to it the best we can. Trying to design a scrolled birth announcement. Will post when cut out.
                  Ozark- Congratulations to you also!!

                  Thanks to our Scrolling Families!

                    I don't remember which one I used but I think it was somewhere around #12 which is .029 diameter. Anything between 12 and 19 will work you would just adjust your slot width. There is a pattern for bending it to shape do you have that?

                    Very Nice cuttings. I think my favorite is the train.

                    Old wooden plates.
                    by Eugene Downes
                    Over the years I've found that cutting old wooden plates can be very rewarding. Most of them are very good wood and when you finish your cut out the plate already has a nice finish on it.. I normally buy mine at yard sales or Good Will whenever I can find them....

                    I've found in the past that you can find some very nice wood from old wooden plates. When you finish your cut out the wood already has a nice finish. I am only adding a picture of 6 but I have done many of these....
