  • Good morning from chilliwack BC

    Just picked up a genral saw yesterday. I have never used one before but from what I have seen that you can make with these style of saws I had to get one. Spent a bit of time cutting scrap wood last night just trying to follow a line. it was a bit harder than I thought. But I plan on getting better and enjoying this tool for years to come.

      Hello and welcome
      Yes you can do a wide variety of projects with a scrollsaw. Once you have figured out how to handle the saw, cut some small, simple projects. You will improve fast. I look forward to seeing your woodwork. I think Canadian Scroller is from Chillawack. You will find many different ways of doing things and patterns, find what is right for you, and have fun scrolling.
