  • Greetings From Peculiar, Missouri

    Hi Everyone,
    I just returned from the Branson, Missouri Scroll Saw Picnic where I learned of this message board and wanted to get involved in it. As an introduction I am Richard Preator and as a hobbie I am an avid scroll sawyer and also restore Victorian Fretwork patterns.
    Since I am a Vendor at the Picnics and have my own web site selling patterns, I don't want anyone on this forum to ever get the feeling that I am using this forum as a method of promoting my patterns. Peculiar Fretworks is a hobby and I want it to stay that way.....
    I would be glad to help anyone with scroll sawing information, or questions about the hobby. I also have been collecting as much of the history of the craft (History Nut Too) as possible, and would be glad to share that information.
    Thanks for letting me a part of this group!!
    Richard Preator

    Welcome, Richard!
    I hope you enjoy it here and participate often. I know there are quite a few cutters here just looking for bigger challenges - you may be able to whet their appetites.
    Thanks for joining our family.

        Welcome Richard! Glad you found your way to this great forum! I know after meeting you at the picnic and viewing your patterns and hearing about what you do, I look forward to what all you'll bring to the table

        I know there are many of our members who enjoy doing fretwork of the Victorian type and design. (Evie you'll love his patterns!)

        Nice to have met you, and hope you enjoy your stay here.

                      Glad to meet you, Richard. I hope we'll see lots of your work. I agree with both Bob and Daryl185 about the addiction, I'm always checking the site every chance I get. Check the time of this post, what should I be doing? PAYROLL, definitely NOT posting this reply.
                      Oh well, back to work

                              Thanks for the Warm Welcome

                              Hi Everyone,
                              Thanks for the warm welcome, it is appreciated. For those who could not attend the Branson, Missouri Picnic ---- Well, lets just say it was a great!!! We, (my wife Ethel an I) got to meet and visit with a lot of both old and new faces and had a really fun time. The Celebration hall the event was held in was big enough that it was not crowded and the Air Conditioning worked good. There was a short disruption by a false fire alarm in the afternoon and we had to evacuate the building into the blazing sun and close to 100 degree temperature, but it didn't last too long. We were lucky that the sprinkler system did not go off, else it would have been a disaster!
                              It is reported that the organizers Gail & Carole Jennings will not be having the event next year. They did an excellent job the last three years, and I can understand that they might need a break from the difficult job. We can only hope that it will return in the future.

                              Thanks To All!

                              Richard

                                New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                                It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                                Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                                I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                                on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
