  • Nothing beats a free education

    This is off topic but I have stumbled upon a wonderful website for drawing instruction.
    Not everyone feels they can draw, The mind tends to shut down for many after we hit the stick figure age.
    I think, given time, we can all unearth the artist within.

    Before you all started scrolling I am sure you felt you could never follow a line with the saw. Practice and a desire to do better are the key ingredients to success in both scrolling and drawing.

    In order to practice and develop better it helps to have a plan. offers you lessons in drawing and composition.
    I think these skills will help not only in the design of patterns but in developing skills that will help your scrolling.

    I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do

        Awesome site, Carl.

        You may have saved me a bunch of money. Hopefully, now I won't have to actually spend the time or money on in-classroom courses. I can just use this site.

        Thanks for sharing.

          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 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.
