  • Hello every body

    Feeling quite lonely as Scrollsawer in Italy despite of the fact that I have a “school” fori t, I thought it would be quite interesting to exchange opinions and experiences with International passionate people.
    I am mostly wood turning, but I noticed that the scroll sawn articles of some size are coming back in the furniture. Latest creation was a bed head.
    Looking forward to virtually meeting all of you.

            I want to see photos too!!! And I want to hear more about this school!!!!!

            I've heard through my contacts that motorized scroll saws are not very popular in Italy; everone still prefers the hand fretsaws...Is that true?

            Wow...Italy has such a rich tradition of fretwork Arte del Traforo...the art of piercing...I'm honored you stopped in to visit!

                I’m ashamed! It took me so much time, it was for a “letto matrimoniale” that could be translated in “King size bed”. It took me so long that I was fed up to see it around and I have not been taking pictures. Now I realise that it was shear stupidity as I believe it is not a common bed.
                Personaly I find such an item a wonderful dust nest. I do know how the owner will clean it up.

                Scroll saw used to be considered a gimmick when ages ago it was taught at school. Only those passionate by the reproduction of small boats or aircraft continued to use it.
                Nowadays this activity is nearly the exclusivity of ladies who mostly do puzzles-toys. The Italian art vanished as in wood turning.
                As far as the school is concerned it has very limited success. The problem is that we hardly have any potential advertising support. Fortunately wood turning is working great. I’ll have to find a way to attract all the ladies which are loosing their time plying cards every second day

                  Bon giorna Claude, (I hope that was correct)

                  Welcome to the group, I hope we will be able to exchange with you as you seem to have a great deal of experience in the scrolling art.

                  And maybe you have pictures of other creations of yours to share with us?

                  Regards,

                    Welcome Claude!

                    I've heard that Italy has a rich scrolling history and original, historic Italian fret patterns are very sought after. It's wonderful to see you trying to revive what was becoming a lost art. Good luck to you and I also an anxious to see pictures of your work.

                      Caro Caude,

                      My name is James. I'm American but am retired and living in France with my Brazilian wife. Can't get much more international than that. I read Italian well enough so you can send your messages in Italian if you perfer. I'm fluent in Spanish and Portuguese so you know the three languages have many words that are similar.

                      I would like to ask if there are any scroll sawers out there who have made wooden gear clocks?

                      Ciao,

                              Welcome everyone. My only language is English, sometimes very colorful if my son and I are having a "discussion" and he doesn'g realize he's lost! Not only would I be interested in seeing what you do, I would love to see a picture or two of Italy and France. This is the closest I'll come to visiting other countries!! As you are finding out, we are quite a great group of people who have a main goal - who can make the most sawdust! Look forward to seeing your work.
