    Hello Moreno. Welcome to the forum.

    It's my understanding that scrolling was very popular in Italy many years ago and that classic Italian fretwork patterns are highly regarded, even to this day. I know that a few years ago the (late) founder of our scroll saw club was working with someone in Italy to try & procure some of these wonderful old, 19th century Italian patterns. Is scrolling still popular there? What sources do you have for patterns in your country?

            Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
