  • Another Noobie

    Hello everyone!
    I just recently decided to get into scrolling. I've been in the background just watching and reading posts for a couple weeks now (a lot of good advice in here), so I figured it was time to jump in the group.
    I'm starting to get the collection of tools gathered. A friend of mine gave me his scroll saw, a Dremel 1672 (which i could use a copy of the owners manual if anyone can help), I think it'll be a good machine to start with. Then I realized that I have nowhere to set it up in the garage, too much clutter and no workbenches. So now I've got miter saw, table saw, and belt/disk sander on its way from Tool King so I can build some storage shelves and workbenches. I did order and recieve the Flying Dutchman blades and Scroll Saw Workbook from Mikes Workshop by suggestion of members in this forum (another satisfied customer). And lately i've been browsing and comparing wood prices and shipping of retailers also suggested here, along with gathering links of scroll patterns and ordering catalogs.
    So, I havent actually started making anything yet but within a couple of weeks I should be up and cutting. Then I'm sure I'll be back with some questions.
    Thanks again to everyone's suggestions and opinions.

          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
