  • New scroller from Utah

    Hello to all. I have been doing woodworking of one type or another for at least 40 years and remember doing a little bit of scrolling in Jr. High, but I am basicly new to scrolling now. I find it very interesting and satisfying and I am looking forward to learing more about it. With the help and suggestions of all of you that have been doing it for awhile will really help me as I try to find the style that I will enjoy most. I am a real "tool junkie" so I am studing the different models of scroll saws to determine the one that will best satisfy my needs. I look forward to hearing and learing from ya'all.

          Welcome, Bill. You're from one of my favourite US states - great National Parks you have down there.

            Really great Parks, I am planning to spend next spring and early summer checking them out in southern Utah. Spending the winter getting in shape to do so.

            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.

                Don't miss Bryce Canyon, Chuck! I think that is one of the most awesome places I've seen anywhere in the world - the way the colours change on those rocks at different times of the day is fantastic. Very hot hiking there in August though!!

                There are some great State parks there too - we camped overnight at Goblin Valley on the drive down to southern Utah fron SLC, and went hiking the next day up one slot canyon and round and back down another - about 8 miles. In 5 hours we didn't see anyone until we were a couple of hundred yards away from the finish.

                There's a couple of pics below of Goblin Valley - the scale on the "field of rocks" can be seen by the figure in the botom left. The second 2 are Bryce but photos don't do it justice..

                Oh apologies to Bill for hijacking your thread!!!

                  That's all right Ian and Chuck, I love this state too. Ian, those are great photos. I have not been to southern Utah very much myself, but Bryce Canyon is amazing and you do have to see it at different times of the day because the colors do change. The first time I saw it I was about 9 years old and it was just before sunset and it is a memory that is still with me. I also like Zion's canyon as well.

                  I just thought I would show some of the projects I have done the last two weeks. The rocking horses are for my grandson and my sisiter's granddaughter. My sister is going to paint them for us. She has a real tallent for tole painting.

                      Mmm trying again - I deleted a post i made because the attachment was wrong and then it wouldn't let me post a duplicate message - see if this works ..

                      That's nice work there, Bill. Coincidence here - I just fixed that owl puzzle pattern to a board last night to cut but I haven't got a piece of wood as nice as that ..

                      Those rocking horses look very nice too - I'd like to see them when they're painted.

                      .. and yes Zion is another beautiful park - very different to Bryce - one reason I didn't like it quite so much was that it was harder to escape the crowds .. Bryce was only really busy on the rim of the canyon and a short ways down .. Arches NP had very few visitors by comparison - no idea why because it's stunning too ..

                      You got me looking at my Utah pics now ..lol Some of the critters obviously liked being photographed...

                        Utah Scroll Saw Club

                        Hi Bill,

                        Not sure if you are aware of it or not but the Utah Scroll Saw Club meets at the Wood Crafters Store in South Jordan on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. You would be most welcome!

                            Thanks Thomas, glad to know that there is a scroll club here. You will need to put yourself on the map, I thought I was the only scroller here. I will try to make it to the meeting sometime, but it is on the wrong end of the valley so it makes for a long drive for me.

                            Ian, that piece of wood for the owls is from a silver maple tree that was in my neighbors yard that I cut down and took it to a mill and had it cut into slabs. Beetles killed it so it has the spalting in it to give the wood its color. The base it sits on is from a flowering plum tree from another neighbors yard. I drilled a 1/4" hole in one of the bottom center pieces so I could put it over a dowel in the base to help the puzzle stand up. I gave it as a christmas gift last week and now I get to make another one for myself.

                              No doubt

                              I did not know we had a club either but then they moved the WoodCrafters store right down the street from me. (NOW THAT SPELLS TROUBLE!!!) If you are a regular reader of ScrollSaw magazine you have probably seen how to articles, and project articles by a guy named Tom Sevy, a very talented scroller, he is a member of the local club here also. There are about 10 or so regulars that I have seen so far. If you come up this way, do stop in!

                                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
