  • Hello from Alaska!

    Thought I'd sign up after lurking for a few weeks. This looks like a great community and I hope to learn from the experts as well as contribute some, if I can.

    My name is Barry, I'm from Anchorage Alaska, and I am a wood hacker..... Seems like there are 11 more steps to go......... I've been scrolling for almost 1.5 years now and love it. I like fretwork, wildlife and floral patterns, and am thinking of diving into intarsia. Currently cutting lots of different ornaments and have made some trophies fr both my dauguters gymnastics teams.

    Again, looking forward to becoming a part ofthis community!

    Hi Barry, glad you decided to join up, it's much better when you can take part in something rather than just looking. You get much more out of it that way.
    Cheers. Teresa .

          Thanks for the warm welcome. Just got back from a short trip and will try to make the time to post some photo's of my work here soon as I'm sure "ya'll" could use a chuckle or two!!!

              Wood turning stuff.
              by Rolf

              I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

              Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

              Reply to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
              by millwab
              I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
