  • I'm new, too

    I've tried some different types of woodworking but seem to like scrolling the best. I just bought a Dewalt 788 so I could work in my own garage instead of having to drive to our woodshop which goes along with membership in our local woodworking club. I liked the Dewalt I used there, so thought I would stay with it. I enjoy making little things like toys and using them as fundraisers for our local humane society and pet rescue agencies. I'm sure this forum will be a huge help to me. The name is Marilyn and I'm 63 - still love learning new things.

          Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

          We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
