  • Hello, my name is Universal Scroller and I am ... scrolling :-)

    Hello everyone,

    Two years ago I discovered scrollsaw with patterns I found on Internet and in the Scrollsaw Woodworking & Craft Magazine and our good fellow Steve Good. I had chance to find these magazines, some good Baltic Birch plywood, an excellent scrollsaw and fine blades.


    I started with one of my favourite actors, who comes from here in Belgium : Jean-Claude Van Damme himself.

    And he gave me the idea for my username on this forum : Universal Scroller J

    I am happy to join this forum !

                  Hello everybody,

                  thanks for the welcome and for my green site; I ike green :-)
                  I visited all your websites and galleries, and I am impressed with your works.

                  I like especially the sentence on Wood-n-things site :
                  "A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman;
                  but a man who works with his hands, his brain and his heart is an artist."-Louis Nizer

                  I like the inlay of Jim Sawyer and I would like to learn this technique, one day.
                  Greatpatterns, Oily :-)
                  and Keystonecop , you have surely a lot of patience to cut all these wonderfull fretwork, especially the texts in wood. Chapeau ! (in french = congratulations).

                  Has anyone of you an idea about my problem to upload a custom avatar ?

                    The folks at Fox Chapel, (the people who host this site), are having trouble with that, and are working on it. I have the same problem.

                        Thank you Jim, I wait until the problem for uploading a custom avatar is fixed. May be I take Sylvester for a while :-)

                        I'll follow the tutorial want inlay is said to be easy :-)
                        One big problem here in Belgium is to find fine boards of wood, ready to work (planed and sanded), in 1 cm thicknes (about 1/2 inch). I can sand little pieces with my little sander not longer than 12 cm x 5 cm. So for little inlay it would be enough, I guess.

                          Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                          I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                          For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                          The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                          Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                          Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                          So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                          Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
