  • Greetings from Ohio!

    Hello all ,just wanted to say what a wonderful site this is , it has already been most helpful.
    I am fairly new to woodworking ,have been doing it for about a year now and have just recently discovered the joy of scrolling i bought a Delta scrollsaw (unsure of model number or size )for 50 dollars off of a gentleman who decided he couldnt have anything but the best and i am having a blast ,mostly cutting out name plaques for people .
    again this is a great site that I am sure I will frequent a lot!

                        Don't worry about that Widget, some of the stuff posted on here looks the same way, especially mine. Who knows, by exhibiting, someone may help you do better.

                        When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

                                I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

                                Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

                                This is only my opinion.

                                Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

                                It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

                                [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                                I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
