  • Red, White, Blue & a little Purple too

    I have been attending the Midwest Scroll Saw Trade Show for the past 8 yrs. During that time, I have entered 5 items in their Scroll Saw contest. My 2nd entry was the Old, New Train by Jeff Z. That received a third place white ribbon in the intermediate fretwork category. Last year, I entered my ' Covered Bridge' and that received the second place in the intermediate fretwork category. This year, I entered my 'Cana Island Light House' and to my surprise it received the blue ribbon in the advance fretwork category.

    shocked and amazed.

                Thanks Mike, WD, Sally, Bill, Jan & Theresa.
                I have been thinking back to my first scroll saw project that I made in 2002. It was a little whale that took over an hour to cut. I realized that I have learned a whole lot since then. Of course I really do need to thank everyone on the forum. I only joined a couple of years ago, but I have been reading for your advice for years.
                My Sincere Thanks,
                Donna

                  Donna, those are very nice & you should be proud of your accomplishments. I think the gratification swells up inside when you accomplish something as nice as that. Good Luck & keep up the wonderful Art works.

                    Thanks Perk for the kind words.
                    I'm one of those people that always finds fault with my creations. So my accomplishments force me to keep getting better. Right now I'm trying to figure out what's next and what new skills can I develop. I know that I need to make some of those little birdhouses and then ????

                        Great work Tango. I don't agree at all with the third place on the train. That must have been a monster to cut and it certainly deserves a much higher position than that.

                              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
