    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.

            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

            I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

            FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

            Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

            I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
