  • Hi from Portsmouth, VA

    Been woodworking for over 25 years, scroll sawing for about 16 years (off and on). First machine was a very basic saw with no goodies. Newest (and hopefully last) saw is a machine with a blower and light. I am very pleased with it.

    I am married (31+ years) 3 daughters. I retired from the U. S. Coast Guard in 2009 after 30 years of service. I work at a shipyard.

    Besides woodworking I enjoy watching the Bills on TV, NASCAR on TV and sometimes in person (who ever drives the 43 car, been a Petty fan since the late '60s), reading military history and most non-fiction.

    Scroll sawing is addicting, I love it so much. It is so wonderful to be able to take a piece of raw material and turn it into something wonderful.

      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.
