  • Hello From Milwaukee

    I’ve been lurking for a couple of weeks and thought it was about time I introduced myself. I’ve been scrolling for about 10 years since I received an inexpensive pin-end scroll saw as a gift. I upgraded to a pin-less saw about 5 years ago and have been mainly scrolling fretwork design patterns for friends and family.

    I recently decided to expand my woodworking tools arsenal with the purchase of a decent router table and router. I’m thinking that my first router project will be a router table cabinet … now I have to figure out where to incorporate the scrolling into the cabinet

    Looking forward to following the message threads …. Tom In Wisconsin

    Tom:

    Big Welcome. Hope you enjoy your vists here.

    BTW (and OT): Does Milwaukee still have Summer Fest down by Lake Michigan? Went to a few back in the 1970's and had a great time with the music and the HUGE amount of beer being served.

      And Phil, yes Summerfest is still going strong! Come on up sometime.I actually havent been to summerfest in about 10 years, I guess Im either too old for that, or to tight to pay for parking (or both). Dale

        Thanks for the welcome guys …

        Summer Fest in the 70’s …. brings back memories of younger days when I was in a band that played there.

        I still catch it occasionally, during the day, but it gets a little too crowded for me at night (sure sign of getting old).

        I’m looking forward to learning from the experts on this forum. I doubt that I’ll be able to offer much advice, but maybe someone can learn from all the mistakes I seem to make.

        Tom

              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
