  • what a great site...

    the other day I was ordering a pattern from wildwood designs and a came across your link in one of their forums....
    I wish I had found your site sooner because there's been several times when I could of used some advice....

    I would like to introduce myself, I'm Trout (AKA) Darrell.
    I've been scroll sawing for a year and a 1/2 now and intarsia fish have been my main project. I have a pretty good workshop started and I have the basics down so now it's time to start learning all the tricks to improve my work.

    This is my work shop....






    my latest addition...

      First...Welcome, you will fit right in, and will have a lot to offer. Your intarsia looks simply awesome, especially the sign! I love it. Who's designed that? Do you design your own? My first suggestion though, is to mess up that shop right away, then post new pictures of your shop, because your making us all look like slobs!!! Nice workplace!!! Welcome again! dale

        Hi Darrell,

        Feel free to drop in whenever you want. If you've lurked a little you will have noticed we all share some things in common: We like scrollsawing and woodworking in general, we like to tickle each other's fancy while staying polite and civilized, and we like to share our experience.

        Whether we are right or wrong doesn't prevent us from stating an opinion that is respected by others. When we accept being told we are wrong, we learn from our mistakes, when we are told we are right... We just go in a sing-song voice: Gnan-gnan I told you so!

        Actually, this is a fun place, and a good place to learn a thing or two, as well as teach a thing or two also. Nobody is good at everything and we can learn from each others.

        This being said, your intarsia is really good, and your shop is way too clean

        Welcome to the group and jump in the threads: the more the merrier.

        PS: Be sure to read the charity auction thread in the general scroll saw section. From what you've shown here I'm sure you could contribute something awesome to the good cause.

        Regards,

                It's funny that you mentioned this...
                I'm an active member of a fishing forum that is set up just like this one with over 800 members..
                15 of the 20 fish I have done have all went for raffle prizes for our group get togethers..
                My peices are considered the grand prize..

                This rod rack will be raffled off at the lake on May 5..


                thanks again for the welcome and I hope to contribute in any way that I can..

                  (Hanging my head in shame) I'm not worthy. My shop looks like a saw came through the forest and chewed up everything in its path. I've got saw dust and scraps and stuff all over the place. Maybe I need to spend some time shop-vac-ing the place. Who knows what I'll find under all that sawdust. This from a woman who is usually extremely organized. Maybe it's just creative/artistic = messy. Yeah, that's it. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

                  Welcome to the group. Great looking shop, but I agree with some of the others, way too clean. I haven't been here long but I've picked up quite a few hints and tricks myself. This is a great group of folks, almost like a family.

                      Sorry to say this but your shop looks like it is about 5 minutes old, No, make that 2 mintures old. Quick, tell us your secret about the super clean shop. My Lady is threating to clean up mine and the only thing stopping her is the promise of bodily harm. My the way, Nice intarsia, very nice.

                          enought about the clean shop...

                          the pictures were taken between projects and I think we were having company that weekend....
                          when I'm working on a project my shop gets just as messy as yours...

                          Luckily all the kids have moved out so that left me with one of the spare bed rooms to play in...

                          you better keep this one to yourselves..but I have an agreement with my wife that I keep the house vacuumed and dusted just so I can have my shop indoors. at one time I had TV but the cable box didn't like the dust and the TV was the one we use in the camper and I didn't want to ruin it...

                          we have a grand baby due in September and everyone thinks that I should start building baby furniture but when I told the wife that would require more tools and for me to move into the den that was the end of that...
                          I think a table saw would fit nicely in the den....

                          it's been over a month since I've worked on a project and now I can't wait for my pattern to get here...

                          this has been fun..and thanks again for the welcome...

                              Hi there Trout! Like everyone else I too think you are soooo clean! Your wife is luck to have you clean! She will have to tell me how she succeed in doing that as I have been trying to convince my hubby to take up the vaccuuming so I can spend more time in the shed but it's not working.
                              Cheers. Teresa .

                                One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                                That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                                I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                                Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
