  • 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.

          The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)...

          I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

          Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

          Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

          I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.
