    Hi David,

    Welcome to the best on line scrollsaw forum. As you may have gathered from reading some of the questions and posts, we are a friendly bunch of sawdust makers. Don't be embarrased to ask questions. You will get good advice from all who answer you.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

            Thanks for the welcome everyone.
            I have only been scrolling for about 5 months. So I will probably be asking some dumb questions.
            I have done a few projects which I will post after I figure out how to do it.

              David, there is no such thing as a dumb question. We have all been where you were and did not even know the questions. Ask away, I am sure with the folks on here you will be surprised how helpful they can be. Toby

                  Welcome, David!
                  As you can probably imagine, none of us were born with our scrollsaws, so we all had to get started somehow. Lucky you to have a big family to guide and encourage you.
                  Let the questions begin!!
                  And welcome to a big silly, wonderful family.
                  PS What kind of saw do you have, and what kinds of things do you think you'd like to be scrolling?

                    Hi David,

                    Welcome to the group.

                    The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

                    We've all been newbies, and sometimes it refreshes our memory to share it along, so no worries: it's good for us.

                    DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                      thanks again guys for the warm welcome. I posted one of my projects in the gallery.
                      I made this for my grand daughters wedding present. I used maple, cherry, and the rose is bubinga.

                        Wow! David, that clock looks fantastic. Are you sure you’ve only been scrolling for about 5 months?

                            The clock looks great, you can't be all that new to scrolling.
                            What kind of saw do you have?

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
