    Hi, I began scroll sawing a few months ago. I have completed the "Scroll Saw Workbook" by John A. Nelson. What a wonderful book for beginners. I am now ready to begin more challenging projects. The "Scroll Saw Workshop" magazines are really great. I have all except 4, 9,and 15. Hopefully I will be able to find these soon.
    I have been teaching pre-k for 14 years. I have been collecting calendars with plans to make puzzles for my classroom. I am in hopes that the experienced scrollers from this message forum will be able to help. I need to know the process to take with these puzzles (from beginning to the end). The pattern/process that I have seen says nothing about using non-toxic materials. I want to make sure I do the right thing to make these puzzles last for years to come. Also,where can I buy these supplies if they are available?
    p.s. I would like to start a collection of my own puzzles, any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you,

      Scroller from KY

      Hi Sonja,I too live in Ky(Louisville). I just joined this forum today. I was educated as a math teacher,but worked in indutry until retirement. Congrats on getting into scroll sawing,its the only tool safe enough to get your fingers close to the blade and still retain them. I have a vs Hegner,piddle mostly, but do make a few desk name plates. I joined this forum mostly to hunt for an old Powermatic,delta,or atlas 24"jig saw. I saw you're from KY,just had to respond. Good scrolling,PW.

          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

          The new Circular Scroll Saw Designs book form Fox Chapel
          by Tom in Ashland
          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

          I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

          Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
