  • Hello everyone

    Hello everyone my name is Bill from the Robin Hood County here in Nottingham in the UK. I am a new 54 year old who is as green as they come when it comes to any kind of wood crafts.I have recently purchased a new scroll saw a saw bench and saw and a router bench and router. I have recently started a project my first in fact- a scroll saw cut out of my mother.It is in rough pine and i have done nothing more than cut it out.At the moment it is indeed rough and i think i will be shortly purchasing the scroll anywhere blades that cut in any direction as at this moment in time my accuracy is all over the place even if i can recognise its my mother lol.I am hoping in time to become at most efficient and acceptable in the art of wood scrolling at least to the point everyone can recognise what is what when my projects are complete.As for selling my items i am so far away from that and not even sure at this moment if indeed i want to sell, simply enjoy the challenge the art offers.I hope to interact with others here in an effort the gain knowledge- tricks etc and perhaps make new even if far away friends. Thankyou to those that welcome me and read my first post in advance .

      Welcome Bill. Good to have you with us. I would only say, that you should be very careful with your power saws, router etc. If you go to spiral blades, be sure to use some scrap wood & PRACTICE. They are even MORE difficult to control than your flat blades. I use them all the time & I can handle them real well. I'm confident you will too, but, first, PRACTICE. Good Scrolling to you.

        Welcome Bill from just up the road from you, I'm in South Yorkshire. Glad you managed to find this forum because in my opinion this is the best Scroll Saw group on the planet. Don't be shy to ask any questions, someone will always jump in with good advice. Like you I was completely new to scrolling when I joined this forum about 4 years ago. In no time at all with the help of these great folks here I was making stuff that I was very pleased with. I even managed my first sale after a couple of months. Lots of people on here sell their work but all of us have one thing in common, we are addicted to this fabulous hobby. I hope you get bitten by the scroll bug too, I'm sure you will. Don't forget to post pictures of your projects, pictures really do paint a thousand words.

          Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

          Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
