  • New member from Lebanon, TN

    Just wanted to give a quick introduction. My name is Scott and I am currently serving in the U.S. Navy on Recruiting Duty in Nashville, TN (transferring to Helena, MT in August). I have been scrollsawing for a few years now and find it very relaxing. I love making things for my family and friends. When you make something with your hands, it just seems to mean so much more.

    On a side note, I just found out that I am going to be a Papaw! I thought about making my daughter a baby cradle. Does anyone have any plans they could share?

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
