  • Hello everyone :)

    Hi folks,

    My name is Sean Reynolds. I just wanted to introduce myself and give a small bit of info about me. I am a wood carver and now scroll sawyer. I came across scroll sawing about 2 weeks ago, found a guy who has been a wealth of knowledge and has helped me get started. Although we live hundreds of miles apart he has really been a huge help. I started out buying a Craftsman 16in saw to make sure I was going to enjoy the hobby. And wow do I love it. I hope to be an active member here over the years and to become a master at scrolling someday I am 44yrs old and hopefully have many years left to do this wonderful hobby.
    Here is the 4th peice I have cut so far. Got a lot of work to do but it was a blast! This is cut from cedar, man I love the smell of cedar!

    Welcome Sean,
    That's a nice angel. I've seen some beautiful things when folks have combined carving skill and scroll sawing. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

        That is nice work, Hope to see some more soon.
        It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

        It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

          Thank you everyone. And yes Karen, I am already trying to figure out ways to incorporate my carving and scroll saw work together hehe. I would show some of my carving work but did not think it appropriate on a scroll saw forum

                  I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
                  But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

                  I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

                  Shrink wrap systems
                  by Linda In Phoenix
                  What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...
