  • 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>

                  by Linda In Phoenix
                  Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                  I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                  For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                  The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                  Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                  Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                  So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                  I like the fact...

                  Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
