    Mine was in my mail box in East Tennessee today. Haven't had time to sit down and look yet though.

          Got mine yesterday. I kinda like the looks of the new Pegas scrollsaw that Bob D reviewed. If I were in the market, I'd give that saw some serious consideration. Be nice to see one in person, someplace. I wonder if anyone is going to carry them retail or if they will be on-line order only?

            Got mine Wednesday and the grain patterns in the bowl Carole made are truly beautiful. She made that piece of wood look great! Great communing with the "wood spirits".

                    Got mine today. Saw Bob was at gruff and gruff. That’s my go to place for wood. We’ve been going there for about 5 years. Perhaps there will be an open house and the Pegas saw will be there?

                      You did an excellent job on it too. Perhaps they sent your early copy to the OTHER John Nelson. Or perhaps someone at the post office lifted your copy.

                        Couldn't agree with you more Jim. I always love everything Carole does and wish I had just a small ounce of the talent she does.

                        I also like the hot air ballon that they had in the letters section using the SpectraPly from Jim Maciag. That is the same hot air ballon pattern I had recently tried from scrolleronline. I need to get some SpectraPly and do some with it. Now, to go back to issue 72 to find some sources for it.

                          Thanks, Jim and Melanie, for the kind words. Melanie, with your abilities, if you ever wanted to make a bowl, I know it would be quite impressive.

                          It was fun getting the cypress assignment. The color of the wood, when seen in person, is just lovely, with a real richness and depth. I was also intrigued by the small pieces of pecky cypress, which I almost missed in the package. I had been working on some tea lights, and the wood was just perfect for it, needing just a little smoothing and softening of the edges--talk about an instant project!

                          I had never heard of "sinker cypress", and was pleased to find such an informative article in the magazine, along with the usual array of interesting projects and helpful information. Makes for a good read, even if it's a bit too cold to make sawdust!

                            I've got the fever, though. Expect to get wood Tuesday from Ocooh to start making Steve Good's Nativity boxes for Christmas 2019. Need to do at least seven, so I've got to get started as soon as the weather breaks.
                            (Six layers to each box, plus backer and two cuts for each lid. I know I can do it, but at times I feel I am just a bit crazy)

                              The front of my house is Cypress vertical plank and batten. It broke my heart to seal it with a light stain but the weather was really beating it up.
                              I had to replace a few planks and @$75 a plank 10' x 10" by 3/4, I don't want to replace any more .The original was a full 1" thick.
                              The sinker wood is beautiful stuff.

                                I'm curious to see if the experienced cabinet makers at our local lumberyard/flooring/cabinetry shop are familiar with sinker cypress. I've always liked the grain of cypress, but it does mess up sandpaper something awful.

                                I didn't know that it was used for siding, but it makes sense because of its high oil content. Pricey! I can see why you don't want to replace any more! A few years ago we made some cedar planters for our kids, and were alarmed at the cost of a pretty unremarkable looking wood. I'm grateful for any "freebies" I can get!

                                  Quartz you are absolutely right about the need for a good blade and proper tuning of the saw. I thought the price was a lot cheaper than I expected. Only nine ornaments

                                  Thanks Rolf. Hard to see, but the light wood is curly maple. Beautiful
