  • 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.

                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.

                                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
