    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.

          I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

          I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

          Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

          Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
