  • Hello from Oregon

    Hello everyone. I have a nice Porter Cable Scroll Saw which I have hardly used, since I have had no shop to work in, or time to learn the craft. After moving 7 mo's ago, the shop is finally coming together in the garage and I can't wait to start learning to do inlay and intarsia! I have always admired the beauty of wood inlay, and would like to learn to make decorative elements to install in guitars and ukuleles, which I am also learning to build. I have everything to learn about this but I have a good Scroll saw, and lots of scrap wood to get started with. Looking forward to exploring these forums for instruction and ideas.

        Welcome "a-board" dj, always glad to see new members here, more brains to pick..... People usually do things a little different and if they are willing to share it benefits us all. Come by often and when you get your guitar going we would love to watch the process.....not mandatory to post photos here, but sure appreciated.

                  Very cool! I will be at the coast that weekend for sure. Will see if I can round up the family to head down there.

                    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
