  • Hello: another 'Newby' Here

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to scrolling. Thought it would make a good addition to my shop where I primarily do woodturning.
    I've been into (and out of) woodworking since Jr. High school back in the late '60's. But since I've built my own shop I try hard to get in there as much as possible.
    I've done lots of things from cabinet building to yard art (planters, bird houses, wishing wells, etc.) but now I've decided it's time to learn a new tool.
    I found this site while looking for a software program for converting pictures into patterns (I have a few ideas that I think would sell well at our local farmer's market). There's an accquaintence of mine that's been a scroller for yrs. and he's very good. I'm hoping to learn a lot from him also.

        Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

        Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

        I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
