  • 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!

                    Saw tuneups
                    by Rolf
                    I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

                    Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

                    Is this too dark?

                    Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...

                    by Jim McDonald
                    Sometime back, there was some discussion about darkening oak. I have used the search and found something about fuming with ammonia, but I think there was another method using vinegar.
                    I have a suspicion it may have been lost in the software change.
                    Any guidance appreciated.
