    The idea of a different thread for each persons intro is a great one.
    Much easier to reference than going through the entire list.

    My name is Carl Hird-Rutter, I am 47 years young.
    I live in Chilliwack BC Canada.

    Back in 1996 just after we moved into the townhouse one of our new neighbors came to visit.
    Roy Brown is a gentleman in his 70s he asked me if I had any hobbies. I told him I use the computer and listen to the shortwave radio. He said those are not hobbies.
    He smiled and left. 20 minutes later he came over with a scroll saw some wood and some patterns. "Here is a hobby" he said.
    He showed me the basics, left the saw and the wood and the rest is history.

    I seemed to want to jump right into the complicated fretwork right from the beginning. My first project was a rose coaster, then a tiger coaster.
    After the first month I jumped into a cut out of an ark on a piece of scrap wood I got from another neighbor. The wood was 16 x 22 and was painted white, the sawdust was a darker colour. I was delighted to find out it was cherry. I redid the ark a few times. Once on a cupboard door and once on a piece of mahogany 5"x7"
