    My name is Jim Wilkinson. I have been sawing for about 4 yrs now. I started in the second bedroom in our condo which caused dust everywhere. I get carried away sometimes and have to have an alarm clock to let me know when it is time to go to work. I started small and started to find the harder the progect the cheaper it got because as soon as I finished on project I needed more wood to start another.
    I am glad I found this site.
    Have a great day all

    Welcome to the forum. Yes I know what you mean - alarm clocks do have other advantages.
    Cheers. Teresa .

      Welcome aboard. I live just down the street...well Highway 1 is a street
      If you get out Chilliwack way Aug 4 through 7, you can catch me or my buddy Roy Brown doing scrolling demos at the Fair.
      It is a great hobby and I think ScrollSaw Workshop is the best site by far for all types of scrollers.
      You will find everything from Abrasives to Zero tolerance table inserts here.
      Ask any qusetions you like, there are no dumb ones...although I have made a few dumb replies.

      Happy Scrolling

        Hi Jim

        I know what you mean about forgetting time. I normally serve tea in our house at 5pm, but if I'm in the workshop it can often be as late as 8pm. My other half's just resigned himself to it .

        Welcome to the forum.

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
