    Hi. With our 2 daughters gone from the nest and my University study completed I went looking for a new hooby and found scrolling through my husband's woodworker's guild and am now a member of that too. I use a Delta 16" saw. About 6 members have really got into scrolling with a few more becoming interested. In April I organised our very first Scrollsaw Picnic, Kiwi Style, (alias workshop day) in our garage. We made individual items and put them up for a raffle at our WW Guild's open day Sunday 29/May. We also had a good sized display table and three saws doing demos all day. All in all we created a great deal of interest. Our hope is to get more Guild members and therefore more numbers added to our scrolling group. It will be just great if one day we can muster all the Kiwi scrollers together!
    Cheers. Teresa .

    Welcome

    Welcome to the art of scrolling and the best forum online
    I have used the 16" Delta for 8 years or so and never tire of it. I like pushing it to the limits. I even cut 2" maple for a rockinghorse......I have to admit I did have to do some sanding where I scorched the wood.
    You will enjoy the banter and the advice here. Most of us do

    We would love to see some of your work posted in the gallery

                  Thanks for the warm welcom, everyone. In reply to where do I get my wood? Well my husband is an AVID turner, and has made himself a portable mill with a four foot bar chainsaw. He gets offers of wood from EVERYWHERE and because he works for the City Council, and the tree guys work for him, he gets first choice of whatever's coming down. Mind you he has certainly kept them on his side by supplying them with thankyou clocks!! I think he has enough to keep him busy for about 3yrs! Works well. I'm also lucky in that he has a garage full of tools and machinery!! Basically I'm pretty new to this practical side of working with wood thing but 'm learning quickly. yes some of my work is in the gallery.
                  Cheers. Teresa .

                      I admit it... I splurged on a new "toy"
                      by Linda In Phoenix
                      So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                      I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
                      In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.
                      I also added the...

                      Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                      Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
