  • 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.

                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
