    I have an old scroll saw I bought a couple of years ago but never had much time or a whole lot of room to use it. I am looking forward to getting a better saw and seeing what I can do. Any suggestions what a good saw might be.

      I believe that the new Woodworkers Journal has a scroll saw review. I am well pleased with the DeWalt but it is a personal preference and a money available plus the major type of scrolling that you plan to do that will most influnence your saw choice. Buy the best you can afford.

        Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

        I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

        I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

        To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

        I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
