  • New To Scrolling

    Hello, I am brand new to scrolling, I just got a Delta 20" saw and an intro pack of Flying Dutchman blades. #1,#3,#5,#7,#9 & #12. I think that should get me started.

                      He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                      Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                      It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
