  • Noob from Texas

    Hey, I'm a total newbie from Texas.

    I have been interested in trying scrolling for a while. And recently my wonderful wife brought home a porter cable scroll saw for me. So I have started on a fretwork cross and am really enjoying it. I hope to get as good as some of the work I have seen on here.

        Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

        by Tom in Ashland
        Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

        I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
