  • Good luck with Irene!

    With all the gloom and doom about the potential destruction that Hurrican Irene could wreak this weekend I'd just like to wish all members who live in its path the best of luck. Batten down the hatches, stay safe and please don't do anything silly like venturing outside at the height of the storm to take pictures. Leave that to those folks who get paid for taking such risks.

    And if you do suffer mishaps I sincerely hope they are only minor ones

    Good luck and stay safe!

    Nice thought Jim.

    All the very best to everyone anywhere near Irene.
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

      We are very happy that Irene went right past us and headed north but not happy about all the folks in the path. The good news is that the storm is weakening and is now on the edge of becoming a Category 1 storm instead of the Cat 3 it has been.

          I also hope that everyone in the path of this hurricane has either left or has batten down enough to keep from getting hurt. Nothing is more important than your self and your family...Be safe

            Thanks....She is hitting us in NC as we speak. Glad she lost some punch over night. Looks like flooding will be the big issue.

                According to the latest she's headed right over us here but is expected to weaken to a tropical storm when she hits southern Connecticut on her way up the CT River Valley. There's nothing I hate more than a strong wind storm in the middle of the night as I'm surrounded by some pretty massive trees; it's hard to sleep with one eye open. Hope everyone is prepared and stays safe as she blows through.

                  I hope all you folks in the path of Irene come through with little or no damage to yourself or your property. Been watching the news over here and it appears she is weakening, I certainly hope so. It must be a scary time for you.

                    I went with a girl named Irene in high school . Didn't last long . Hope this storm is short and sweet too .

                      She wasn't short or sweet!! Rain lasted for 24 hours!!! Wind lasted about 30 hours. We're safe and no damage or flooded basement. Hope everyone else is ok.

                        Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                        Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                        Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                        Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
