  • I am home,,,and sawing again

    Howdy All,

    I have been home for a bit over 10 days and have avoided the internet but I thought I best get on here and say that I am finally home.

    Many things happen in a years time and I am adjusting as needed. The wood shop took a few hits in my absence from my four legged shop keepers that left the appearance of a K-9 party. All things are cleaned up and I have rescented the air with saw dust. I am working on a few projects mostly from the beginners level but I do need to relearn a bit. What is making more fun is the fact that my 11 year old daughter is also scrolling with me now. She has shown quite a knack for it and I hope to soon post some of her work.

    Best Regards,


    Hawk G4, Dremel 1800

      I can't think of a better welcome to a scroller than the promise of a new scroller to watch and guide.
      Thank you for your service - I sure hope you never have to go back!!

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
