  • Greetings from the Ozarks

    Hello all,

    I recently bought a Dremel scroll saw to aid in my wood ship model building, and had no idea at the time I would find myself entering a new hobby! (just what I needed) but I love it! Instead of waiting months and in some cases years to view the finished product, I am able to show the fruits of my labor relatively quick in comparison. Granted I have only 3 projects under my belt.... all of which I have given as gifts, and was rewarded with great smiles and proclomations of awe.

    I look forward to learning and sharing with you all. Especially since I am at this point totally self taught. And probably doing more wrong then right.

    As soon as I navigate this site a little more, I'll post some pictures of my first projects.

    Welcome aboard.

    Awseome, now I have another model ship builder to refer to when I finally start mine <grin>

    I'd love to see what you have done (ships and scrolling work). I'd also encorage you to check out the Wood Carving Illustated message board--we've got another model ship builder over there (Bob Squarebriggs).

      Welcome aboard.
      It is always nice to see new members. I am interested in the fact you got your scroll saw to help with another hobby.
      I think the scroll saw is one of the most versatile tools in the shop, few really push it to the extent we could.
      We would all like to see your work. I think sometimes the forum is like a food source for us.

        Thanks for the welcome! Bob I'll be glad to help and share with any questions you may have regarding model ships.

        Here are pics of my first projects, all were patterns taken from Scroll Saw Mag.

        The dragon was my first, it is a pine board base with 1/4 inch red oak for the dragon.

        The cyclist is pine for both the cyclist and the backing, the lettering is red oak.

        And my latest is the eagle, the backing is baltic birch, the eagle is cherry.

          Bob,

          Here are a couple of my models that I have pics of...

          The first is a Muscongus Bay Lobster Smack, the 2nd is a Grand Banks Dory which is a scratch built from plans thus the need for the scroll saw.

            WOW....

            I started a Boston Clipper in my high school shop class...and never finished it. I'm going to need to patch up the hull before I start again, but Bob Squarebriggs in on my case about it <grin>

                  Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                  by Ennobee
                  My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                  Hi Jim.
                  glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                  Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                  Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
                  by jim_mex
                  I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
