        Welcome peterBA, would love to see your project. Not mandatory to post photos here, but sure appreciated. Did you know that the owners of this forum also publish a scrolling magazine? You can subscribe right from this site. Lots of ideas and information in the magazine. Just a suggestion for ya.

          Hi Peter - good to see another Brit in the group. We're in the minority here but we make ourselves felt!

          You've come to a great, homely forum with a very mixed bunch of scrollers at all different levels from complete newbies like yourself to superbly skilled masters in their hobby or profession. What you will find above all is plenty of help, advice, new ideas and if you join in the fun and games you'll meet a lot of really nice people worthy of being called friends.

          Spend a little time looking around the site and don't be afraid to post any questions however stupid or elementary you think they might be. Also, as has been mentioned, post photos of your work. We are not judgmental here. We really like to see all levels and kinds of scrolling work and for newbies especially this is a great way to get tips and advice on how to improve their work.

          Above everything else, have fun!

            Welcome Peter. I'm intrigued by your work and I've never come across Foamex before, can you paint it?

            A photo of your work would be great

            Also this site has a pattern vault Free Scroll Saw Pattern Vault - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Message Board which might give you some seeds for future projects.

            Good Luck
            Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
