  • Gonna be a Grandad!

    My oldest daughter and her husband are expecting a baby in September! This will be our first grandchild. I'm just busting! I already volunteered to build the baby a changing table/dresser. Looks like I won't be doing a whole lot of scrolling for awhile.

        This is great news..... If you have to stop scrolling for a while there is no better reason.

            Congrats Bill- the first one is so very special -- nothing in the world can compare-Now you said you will stop scrolling for a while --bite your tounge !!!!I have a grandaughter that is a huge fan of my scrolling . and she is always finding something when she goes through my mags that she just has to have "Right now Nanna- before I go home" needles to say - she gets it. lol-- there are so many wonderful things out there to make to dress up a childs room .. the things you can make from birth to adult are endless. --So don't rest your saw to fast Gramps-- There is dust to be made yet.

                Congratulations to you and your daughter!
                No scrolling? Well at least you'll still be making some sawdust with the changing table!

                  Congrats Bill! I know the feeling, I'm going to be a first time Grandma in June! Can't wait. Hubby is making a cradle and I'm doing some scroll saw cutouts on the ends. The best part about this is I don't get fat for 9 months, no crying baby at night, no sick baby to tend to and no sleep deprivation. I can just love, spoil and return!!!

                      Thanks everyone.

                      Sharon, not giving up scrolling, just that most of my shop time will be consumed with making baby furniture for the forseeable future. I work slow and these kind of projects take me a long time to complete, so I guess I have to put off some of the scrollsaw projects I've been wanting to do. However, once the tyke is a little older, I expect I'll find all sorts of scrollsaw stuff to clutter up his/her room with.

                              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
