  • De-lurking

    Hi All, My name is Jim and I live in Connecticut. I’ve been reading this message board for a few of months now and decided it was time I de-lurked, signed-on and said hello.

    I’ve been scrolling for somewhere around ten years now, and do so simply for my own enjoyment. I’ve done mostly fretwork and some intarsia in the past and have just started to explore the world of portraits and using the computer to convert photos into patterns.

      Jim,
      Welcome!!
      Sort of the scroller that came in from the dark, right? Or was that a spy??
      Never mind! It's lots more fun belonging than just looking. Make yourself at home, and I hope you enjoy your visits.

          Will do Kelly and Sandy, in fact I just posted my first picture in the “General Scroll Saw” section. Looks like I need to work on how to format the pictures though. The ones I posted didn’t come out too good.

            Welcome Jim, glad to see you emerge from the shadows. I think you'll like it here, nice place, nice folks. What kind of saw do you have?

                  Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

                  For a scroll saw, I have one of the older 26 inch RBI Hawks. It’s behaved itself wonderfully, and has never given me a moments trouble (“knock wood” – or should that be “cut wood”).

                  Yes Kevin, I’m a CT Swamp Yankee, born and raised. I’m located up in the Northeast part of the state (a.k.a. “The Quiet Corner”) in the town of Ashford (not too far from UCONN – which is rarely “quiet”).

                    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...

                    Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                    He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                    We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
