  • Hello from the Fox Valley

    Just joined on 3-25-06, already have two questions posted, seems to be alot of really good info here, I'm looking forward to reading and learning more about scrolling. I've been scrolling for about 8 years I enjoy doing fretwork mostly, many things end up as gifts, for family, friends, and have recently donated two pendalum clocks to my daughters high school fund raising event, When I figure out how to post pics. I will. Thanks in advance for the warm welcome,

    Wow, I just joined too-we live in Greenville. But I am just getting started in scrolling. I have learned so much reading the boards and the articles. I am still working on my first piece and my 11 yr old daughter has laid claim to it when it is finished.
    Glad to see another fox valley member!

      Welcome all Wisconsinites. I think we outnumber all the other states represented in here. Carrie.... give your daughter that first project, under the condition she in turn makes you something on the scrollsaw (with your guidance of course). It will be a great bonding time!

Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?

          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
