    I am 73 and have been scrolling for years, love intarsia, belong to intarsia scrolling on yahoo but am having trouble understanding this site. There seems to be too much and I can't figure out how to participate effectively or even find things I want. I am working on the bear puzzzle that was published in Scrollsawing magazine by Kathy Wise and I loaned out my magazine to a friend, but I needed to look at the picture one more time and so I foolishly thought I could go to the internet and view the magazine again. But two days later I finally figured out the right username and password. What a pain. My woodworking shop is much more fun. Keep it simple stupid is definitely not the moto of this site. Love Laura

    Don't give up! There are many helpful and knowledgeable people on this site, and once you master the "learning curve", you're sure to come away enriched.

    To simplify things, I keep a handwritten log of all my IDs and passwords. I also stay permanently logged in on this site, so I can easily post messages.

    I'm wondering if you expected to be able to access all the information from any issue of the magazine. Although some projects and patterns are available, it wouldn't make sense for the publisher to allow full access, since no one would then have a reason to buy the hard copy magazine.

    And if you do get jammed up, just post the difficulty you're having, and I'm sure that many members will jump in to help.

      I agree with Carole,
      Lots of helpful friendly people here.
      I just did a quick search in the article index and did not find a Bear puzzle by anyone.
      Are you sure it was in Scrollsaw Woodworking and Crafts?

        It's in a recent issue. Unfortunately, we're trying to get the article index updated, and the software is not cooperating.

            Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

            Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

            Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
