  • Greetings from Northwestern Ontario

    Hi folks,

    Been lurking here for a couple of months now ....

    Have always enjoyed woodworking but only just recently discovered "scrolling" when I decided to make a "Fire Engine Clock" for my youngest son - inducted as a Fireman late last fall.


    One Sears Craftsmans Scrollsaw later (could have made a better choice I know) - a bit of trial and error - and I think I'm hooked - what an incredibly relaxing pastime.

    These pictures were taken a little while back - the clock will be ready to begin gluing shortly - then I will be looking forward to asking some questions about finish.

      Welcome Jay. Looks like you have scrolling nailed down. Looks real nice. What was the wood that you used & maybe the size of your clock? Your Son will love it. Good Luck

                Excellent work

                Wow Jay, that looks gorgeous. What type of wood are you using, and what type of finish are you looking for.There are a lot of nooks and crannys, for applying the finish. Finishing is my strongest area, and I really enjoy helping people, since I am learning so much from others.

                Nice work, and congrats to your Son's achievement. It will make a beautiful gift!

                    Shrink wrap systems
                    by Linda In Phoenix
                    What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                    Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                    New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                    At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                    I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
