  • 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:

            Me too, I voted for it but only because I like it.
            Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

              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 upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                    New turning tools
                    by Rolf
                    I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                    Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                    One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                    I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                    Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                    If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
