  • Hello from Oregon 2 (too)

    Greetings all. Very new to woodworking, but I have experience building RC planes, so I have a few tools in the shop... er garage. I am looking forward to getting a scroll saw because I love the detail that is possible. I like building RC planes more than flying them... so why not cut that whole part out. =)

    So I have a wealth of books heading my way, but if scrolling is anything like RC plane building, I know books can only get you part way there. I have already learned quite a bit from reading through the forums (I lurked for awhile) including very important information about what to look for in a first saw.

    My wife's father who passed before we married did a lot of woodworking. All over our house his creations sit or hang. I never stopped to look at how much work and talent went into them, but I have always appreciated the warmth they add. They are heirlooms that I will pass down to my children, and who knows, maybe with a lot of practice, I can creating something worthy enough to be passed on too.

        Fantastic! Thank you very much for the offer. I am positive that there will be something very quickly that I just can't figure out and would love any help you can offer. Should have my saw set up within a few weeks I hope.

          Very cool... I really never thought of building a RC boat... but I bet it would be fun. Lots of small lakes where I live.

            What is a RC Boat? Can't be made of Royal Crown or can it? People make anything from anything any more.

            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.

              Welcome from another R/C builder/flyer from the left coast. I started this hobby about a year ago.

                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
