    Hello everyone,
    My name is Kathie and I live in rural Nevada - yes, most of it is rural, but Gardnerville seems more so. Either way, I have been scrolling for about 5 years off and on. With school and a family, my time seems to be crunched. I have recently gotten back into it and am enjoying myself once again. I really enjoy your site and reading all of the advice. I use a DeWalt 788.
    Nice to meet you all,

              Glad you found us, and hopefully you'll find and make the time to get in front of your saw and make some saw dust! And then share with us the fruits of your labor!

                Kathie, welcome aboard. I think we are all addicts of the scrollsaw here. So jump in and show your work, ask your questions. Oh and probably teach some of us a thing or two. Steve

                  I was able to have a (relatively) peaceful weekend and had time to cut out two puzzles for a friend's children. One is completed and the other still needs the last coat of paint. I took the patterns out of the Scroll Saw Puzzles book and had a lot of fun with them. My first puzzle cut was the wizard in SSW&C, so these two added to my experience. I had a lot of fun and will post pics as soon as this last one is done. Thanks for the encouragement!!

                    Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                    We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                    What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
