  • ShowOFF Showcase

    The Woodworking Show is held every fall/winter in cities across the U.S. Each year they hold a ShowOFF Showcase contest for all woodworkers. I entered one of my projects a couple of years ago and was told that scrollsawing couldn't compete with other types of woodworking. Of course I took that as a challenge and I had to try again. I entered my Cana Lighthouse. It won in Milwaukee and now it is competing against the 18 other winners to determine the ultimate winner for 2012. If you would like to see the winners, they are posted on facebook at:

              It's very nice. I love the detail of the branches. I voted for your lighthouse. Good Luck!

                  Thanks everyone - your support is greatly appreciated.

                  Mike - I also thought that the dragon was pretty cool, but I can't vote for the competition

                  Karen - Thanks for the comment on the branches. I experimented with a dremel to shape them and I was nervous that I would break something & have to start over. Actually my kitty cat knocked the top layer off the table and the branch over the lighthouse broke off. Good thing that I am good with glue.

                  Trout - I have seen some of the wonderful models that you make, such as the stage coach, truck and tug boat. Since there are a couple similar projects in the contest, I am glad that you stayed with us scrollsawers

                  Oily, Jim & StephenD - Thanks for the kind words & the vote.

I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                    Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                    We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
