    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?

            Celtic knot-shamrock cross
            by Ennobee
            My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

            Hi Jim.
            glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes.

            Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
            by jim_mex
            I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
