  • 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.

                I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
