  • 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.

                  The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                  Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
