  • Greetings!!

    Hi everyone,
    Finally decided to join the forum. I have been scrolling and doing some other small woodworking for the last 15 years. I am currently on Oahu in the beautiful state of Hawaii. My wife and I will be moving to Ft Wayne, IN since our last daughter is graduating and all our kids will be on the CONUS and we are becoming empty nesters. Hope to do craft fairs and other stuff in Ft Wayne, and will try and get into some organizations there. Looking forward to meeting all of you on the forum!! Aloha!!

          Hi Walt - Welcome to the forum. Dive in at the deep end and splash around and you won't go far wrong.

          Please post examples of your work. As Mike says, we are not judgmental but we do like to see what other scrollers are producing whatever the type of scroll work and skill level.

              Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

              I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

              The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
