  • New Scroller

    Hello all I am Mark from Ohio. Very new to using a scroll saw. I have only had a saw for about 8 weeks. Everything I have attemped so far is very basic to what I see some of you do. I am amazed at some of the great works of art that some of you make. I will never be able to do that. I have learned alot the last few weeks reading on this site. I have attemped to make a few things for the Grandkids for Christmas but nothing like everyone here makes. Thanks alot for all the information I have learn so far and hope to lean more.

    Welcome aboard, I too am fairly new only been on here a couple of weeks. You are so right some of these projects done by the experienced scrollers are beautiful, only hope I can get that good one day. Only takes a lot of practice I am told.

              Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

              Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear.

              I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
