  • New Member in Salt Lake City

    I've been scrolling about 15 years on a Hegner, and have had the honor of having three articles with patterns published in Scroll Saw Workshop (Olympic pin display board; Volker ornaments; Disney Castle Night Lamp. I scroll for the joy of it, and only occasionally sell things. The thing I enjoy most is new scrolling concepts. The joinery article in the current issue really caught my eye. I also like very intricate and fragile fretwork from large clocks to small ornaments.

    A little about me. Age 63 going on 50. Married to a great woman for 40 years; 4 children; 9 grandchildren plus one in the oven. Retired from National Institutes of Health as a research administrator. Currently developing a counseling agency as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Other interests include: genealogy, gardening, grandchildren, trying to keep up with my "honey do" list.

          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.

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...

          I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
