  • 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.

          Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

          There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

          As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

          I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

          John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
