  • Brief Introduction

    I recognize many of the folks here so I'll keep this brief. My name is Kevin Daly, I hale from Connecticut, USA. I'm primarily into fretwork, in particular portrait type cuttings. I've been woodworking for over 20 years but have only recently begun scrolling (about a year and half ago). I also design my own patterns as I have a difficult time finding patterns with enough detail for my tastes.
    I look forward to sharing and learning with the group.

      So Kevin, are you a Padwon, Jedi, or master scroller? And does the Force help you stay on the line better? If so, I'd love to be your padawon!


      Either way, Welcome!

        Thanks for the welcome. The jedi thing is kind of a running joke with a friend of mine regarding the use of spiral blades (the "dark side"). As I pretty much only use flat blades, I'm a jedi.
        I'm a long way from a master though.

              I see you are a portrait person. Very nice work indeed. How long have you been scrolling? Do you sell your work or are these for family and friends? Do you make your own frames? Again nicely done and a big welcome to the site.

                Thanks for the welcome John. I know your work and the kind words from you regarding my scolling are most appreciated. I've been scrolling about a year and a half now, started cutting portraits about 10 months ago and got sort of hooked. I also do a lot of mini-clocks, and some shelves. I'm currently trying to decide on one of the more elaborate clocks to cut as I think I'm ready for one. I do craft fairs and do sell quite a bit of my stuff, the little clocks do quite well as do my puzzles. My higher end portraits ($75 and up) have been doing pretty good also but the less expensive items haven't been selling very well for some reason. I make most of my own frames, the 8X10's I pretty much split between buying and making (the cost is pretty much a wash) while anything larger I make myself.

                  Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                  How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                  The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                  I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                  Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                  If I were in the market for a new...

                  If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                  Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
