  • very confused

    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.

            Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

            There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

            As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
