    Hiya all, I'm Jim, from Nottingham England, and I'm really new to scroll sawing, I bought a saw a few weeks back but have not had the chance to use it, until yesterday, when I created these two pieces from a Patrick Spielman book.

    (Don't know if I've posted the pictures right, but I did notice they are in the members gallery section, if you fancy taking a look)

    I hope to get to know you all soon, the site looks fantastic

    Welcome Jim

    Welcome aboard Jim,

    The pics did not show, but I saw them in the gallery.

    Nice work! You are going to enjoy this hobby, and this site is a good place to get information and exchange ideas on many subjects.

    We don't always agree, but we always respect each other, and agree to disagree .

    Jump in the conversations, share tips and ideas, and just have fun.

      Hi Jim

      Welcome to a friendly forum and a very satisfying new hobby.

      There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

            Thanks for the welcome guys, it doesn't take long to get addicted, I'm itching to get down to may workshop at the bottom of my garden to scroll some more pieces, as soon as my back is up to it, I will be, I put it out over the weekend, and now I'm struggling to do stand and move about.

            But at least it gives me time to create some of my own designs and patterns. Someone told me about Coyote software which can be used specifically for making scroll saw patterns, has anyone used it, and what do you think to it? I have used PSP 9 a lot in the past for other things, and am sure I could use it to make patterns with, but thought I'd ask for your opinions?

              Your Trumpet Man is a southwest American Indian symbol for fertility. I really like it.

              Shamelessly ripped off from another website:

              Kokopelli is a prehistoric deity depicted hundreds of times in rock art, some of it over a thousand years old, located in numerous sites in southwestern United States deserts and mountains. Often depicted as a humpbacked flute player, this mythic being has survived in recognizable form from Anasazi times to the present. There is something appealing about Kokopelli which fascinates all kinds of people, even in our modern technological age.

                Oh wow, thanks MinotBob for the info, I didn't know anything about him apart from the fact I really liked him. It's nice to find out a bit of history behind a piece regarding its origins and meaning.

                Thanks ever so much, I really appreciate it.
