  • 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.

                              In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                              Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.
