  • Hello from a colonial Aussie

    G'day to everybody on the other side of the world. I reside on the western side of Australia, otherwise known as Western Australia. Have just built, and my shed just completed so I will soon be set-up and ready to learn a lot from all the woodies out there. I am a bit late on the introduction but the time difference threw me a bit. Anyway, here I am, 70 years young and going OK.

      Thanks JerryS, Which part of our lovely land are you from?. Not sure where DeLand is but am assuming Florida. Long way from home. I am really looking forward to getting back into doing some woodwork and scrolling as we have been caravanning for some time. nice talking to you.

                really enjoyed looking. I hope I can do half as good.

                  Hi John B, Have been in Bunbury for about 12 months, but many moons ago was brought up in Yanmah/Manjimup. Departed and did 8 years in WRAAF among other things. I have a nephew (retired now) who did quite a stint in the Police Force, (TRG etc). Anyway, Kal's a nice spot if the heat doesn't get you. 16 years in Carnarvon & Geraldton cured me. Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

                    Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                    by Tom in Ashland
                    Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                    Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

                    I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
