    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,
    SonjaRaquel

      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.

          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
