  • Hi all

    Hello all....A total newbie here.

    I am hoping to learn lots of new things on here.

    I am 36 yr old male from west lancs.
    My wife is due to have our baby in 4 if I go missing for a while, you will know why.


    Thanks Gill

    Welcome aboard RPM. You will definitely learn a lot here. some is even related to scrolling. Actually,there is a bunch of talented and helpful scrollers on this forum who are more than willing to share their experiences with hints, tips and advice. Once you are up and running, be sure to share your projects with us.

        I'm pleased you've found us, RPM . New babies are wonderful opportunities for scrollers to cut out lots of mobiles, teddy bears, photo frames and the like. So when you start hiding in your workshop, you'll have a valid excuse .

        Seriously, I hope all goes well with the happy event and that you're soon showing us photos of your newly extended family.

                Welcome RPM! Are you a newbie Dad as well as a newbie scroller?

                Good luck with both! Kids and scrolling, you'll find that you can't get enough of either of them.

                  Thanks again for the welcomes.

                  minowevieI am very new to scrolling. I have done a bit of wood work in the past but nothing great.

                  Thanks for the well wishes.


                  I have two other children. Girl...15yrs and boy 12yrs.
                  It is more the scrolling I am new too

                  I think my daughter will love to have a go on the saw, she is very arty. (I will have to keep a close eye on her).

                  Thanks to you too for the good wishes.

                    KIDS YA. just let your daugther come in here too. It is a safe and respectfull forum, most of us, have familys. and are kids a preshioas to us. ok i can't spell. maybe they could help a old lady out here. HO HO. you could both learn some things , I am sure. and we could learn from you too. I am so glad you are hear. Hi little daughter. Evie

                      I would strongly urge you to keep a close eye on your daughter for sure! At least for the first few fretholes, make sure she understands the blade changing and tensioning. Then, turn your back and let her cut freely without anyone watching her, making her nervous. I could write a book on kids first learning to scroll. The thing that makes any kid most nervous when learning this fine art is having someone standing over them watching. Encourage her to give it a try, you will be you did.At HER age, scrolling is much healthier for YOU then her hanging out with the boys, you will know exactly where she is and what shes up to!!! Also, when Christmas comes around, she might make your shopping much easier and ask for her own scrollsaw (unless you have to get yourself a new one because shes always at the current one)! Welcome aboard. Dale

                        Dale, I couldn't agree more. and I think that is a great idea, please write a book. with your skills, and noledg with working with your scouts. you could make a great kids learning book. there is just nothing better than spending time with are kids, and scrollsawing is a great way. there is just to much tv. and not enouph one on one with are kids. a scrollsaw is (my opinion) one of the safest tools a young person could use. and kids love to please us, and their other friends. the little 8 year old i just gave my old saw too. is doing so great. he lives 9 hours away. so i teach the gramma, and she teachs the grandson. HOHO. now the grandson. tells gramma to leave the shop. for he is making lots of xmas presants for all the family, and has his own ideas. he is doing great. and he even brings his friends in to show them stuff. I am so proud of him. insted of smoking pot. and terraizing the neibor hood. he is doing something , he and his friends and family are proud of. so cool so cool. Evie Ps. I am the one who recieved the gift.

                            Hi RPM

                            Welcome RPM to the greatest group in the whole world I have learned a lot since I first found this wonderful site.
                            Congratulations on your new addition. I have four children and six grandchildren. Only two wanted to learn how. But all of them took an interest in my creations. I found that it is the one thing the whole family does enjoy as long as you share it with them. Happy scrolling.

                              Greetings from central Indiana. Most of the good stuff I know about scrolling, I learned here. The rest was from fixing mistakes or doing stuff again because I didn't pay attention to what I read here.
                              So, ask your questions and post your photos.
