  • Saying Hello.. I'm new

    Hello folks! I am new here. I use a scroll saw to do part of my work for my etsy shops. I make custom wedding cake toppers and toys, specializing in portrait styles. I also use a colwood wood burner and I paint my work with watercolor--which kind of looks like stain, and finish with beeswax eventually after a sealing--so they are 'natural' for a little niche market on etsy that enjoys natural/ eco friendly toys etc.

    I have a blog at pokeberrypatch.blogspot.com
    and look forward to learning more about scroll sawing here.

    I'm actually fairly new to scroll saw--just started using mine about year ago. I inherited from my dad, he died around 15 yrs ago. We kids had bought it for him not long before he passed away of a brain tumor. He had hoped to use it--but it was not to be. Instead it came to me. I am the 'artsy' person in the family. When I got it I was super busy raising my 4 kids and it wasn't until now when I am enjoying grandma-hood that I had time to play with my toy.

    Now I am at the point where I know I am lacking in knowledge about tools and needing to learn more to up my skill and also to start upgrading tools. I decided to find a community of scroll saw people to visit in hopes of learning and making friends.

    Well that's me. I will now continue on to ask a question in another thread. Glad to meet yas!

            New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

            It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

            Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

            I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
            on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
