  • Greetings from West Virginia

    I thought I would si Hi. I just recently did my first wood project and it was a set of cornhole boards. Now I have borrowed my dad's Delta 16 inch scroll saw and thought I would give it a try. It's harder than it looks following a pencil line that was been traced on wood. Can anyone point me toward someeasy beginner plans?

    Thanks

      Mike pointed you to a great place to start in the vault. Start simple, but you'll be amazed at the the progression you make. I began just making a few ornaments like mittens, etc, but have just started a monster landscape that I may get done by spring. (It is what I will work on between more pressing projects)

              There are several Mill Creeks here in WV. I was born and lived in Mineral county most of my life and now reside in Grant county WV. I used to trout fish in Mill Creek in Mineral county years ago. Glad to see another Hillbilly. Welcome aboard. Steve

                Spent today building a bench so I wouldn't have to work off of 2 saw horses and a piece of plywood. Now the saw wants to slide around so I am thinking I need a rubber bath mat or something under it. Dad helped and said now I need to build an 8 ft bench for other tools and bench space.

                  Get some stove bolts, lock washers and nuts and bolt that saw down! Or use wing nuts if you have to remove it.

                  It will cut down the vibration and give you a much more secure workspace.

                    Leading up to my retirement I too worried about who would replace me. Truth be told I was more worried than my management. It took a couple months after my retirement for the feelings to go away. Now I only miss the people and not the job.

                    is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                    I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
