    Hi. I live in Benoni, South Africa. I have been interested I woodwork for some time and now that I am getting close to retirement I am concentrating on making wood signs which incorporate scrolling and intarsia. In our part of the world there are not many patterns with wild animals from our region. I would like to get in touch with anyone who may be able to advise or just talk about this. Thankyou for the opportunity to chat.e-mail= [email protected]

    Hi Tony

    Welcome .

    What animal patterns would you like? There are some very skilled pattern makers around on forums such as Absolutely Free Scrollsaw Patterns and Free Scrollsaw Patterns. I'm sure someone over there would be able to help you out.

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

      Hi Tony--

      Welcome to the group. I agree with Gill (Jill). The two sites (actually MSN Groups) are excellent forums for patterns of all kinds. You might also try (Charles Dearing's site) and (Jeff Zaffino's site). They both have animal patterns, but some of them are really difficult/advanced.

        Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

        I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

        These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
