  • Hi From NW Montana!

    Hi from NW Montana! My name is Tim and I have been scrolling for about 1 1/2 years. I have a Makita SJ401 16" scroll saw. I have my own hardwood flooring business and done flooring for 23 years. Started using my scroll saw more since having back surgery in July (blew out L5 & S1). Found this site after ordering a few back issues to complete my set of SSW. Love the magazine! Right now I'm making some dog puzzles and working on a couple of rocking horses for nieces and nephews. Always collecting eagle patterns. I look forward to learning more through this group also. Have to go final coat a floor. Back soon!

    Welcome aboard!
    Hmmm scrolling and hardwood floors, consider the possibilities. Inlays and other ways of coping
    I have thought of using the scrollsaw to do inlayed boarders in laminate flooring before, but as usual there is never enough time to pursue these ideas.

      Welcome Tim

      Welcome to the forum.

      I look forward to seeing some of the projects you are working on in the scroller galleries and of course, 101 ways to use flooring in scroll sawing!

        Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have one source of wood perfected already - those off-cuts could keep you in puzzles and intarsia for a long time!
        Be sure to tell us what you're doing, we'll all love to hear about it (and maybe some pics, too!)

          I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
          But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

          I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

          Shrink wrap systems
          by Linda In Phoenix
          What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...
