  • 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.

            is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

            I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
