  • Hi everyone

    Well I thought this would be a great place for a goof off like me to spend some time. I have been using a scroll saw for about 20 years now to make gifts for the family. Hope to learn something here. I'm kind of hard headed but what can you expect from a hillbilly.

    Hey Bob,

    Welcome aboard. Where are you from? Actually, we have another hillbilly on board. He's from Missouri. You'll here from him I'm sure. Yeah, you're bound to learn something here and most of it good. Considering your 20 years experience, we'll probably learn something from you too. Be sure to post some photos of your work. What is your specialty? What kind of saw do you use? I know, lots of questions, but that's much of what this forum is about. That and encouragement and congratulations and mild humor and .....
    Well, you get the picture.

        Welcome aboard Bob. This is a fantastic site with a lot of good people and good knowledge. After 20 years you probably know more than many of us so we will pick your brain as well as you picking ours. Show us some work if you want to. I did and the comments were all valuable to me. I have yet to have a question that was not answered by several.

          Hello Bob, glad you found us and jumped in by posting, with 20 years of making sawdust with your scroll saw I'm sure you can perhaps teach a few tricks or two, and as others have stated we love pictures, so if you can post some of your past projects we all would love to see them.
          Hillbilly huh? what neck of the woods do you holler from?

            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.

                Hey Hillbilly,

                Welcome to what I consider goof off spot number 1. I waste more time during my work day goofing off here but it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble.

                  Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                  Thanks Rolf,
                  I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                  Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                  This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
