  • 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 .

        This is a good group with a lot of experience. The forum is fun and offers a great deal for the hobbiest and "professional" alike. Look forward to seeing some of your work.

          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!!!

              After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
              I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

              Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

              Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

              Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

              When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
