  • hello from the UK

    hi all
    i'm steve and i will be starting scrollsawing early in the new year when my log cabin has been delivered and errected for me.
    I am a complete novice at this type of work, having tried some last year but failed miserably, not managing to control the wood at all, so looking for some help.
    i will be off now, to look around other sections of this forum.
    thank you
    steve

    Hi Steve
    I am also new here and new to scrolling. Great people here and extremely helpful. They have a lot of knowledge to offer. Best place to land.

      Hi Steve,

      Welcome aboard. If it's help you're looking for, this is the place to find it. We've all been there and done that, because we've all been novices at one time.

              Keep your eyes peeled for Aussies, although you'll probably hear them before you see them...

                Welcome Steve. Scrolling is not that difficult if you learn the basics. Like blade tensioning, cornering, v-cuts, etc. You'll get the hang of it, I'm sure.

                  Hey, I've never noticed Aussies on here - either Gill's banning them after the latest cricket fiasco - or else they're the shy quiet type of Aussie ...

                      You noticed the irony then ... Seriously, I've met lots of Aussies and they are generally sociable friendly people - except when you get them onto the subject of sport ..lol

                        sorry for not replying sooner, had log in difficulties (sorted now). Many thanks for the very warm welcome, nice to see. I live in Notts, (gun crime capital) LOL, not really.
                        so looking forward to getting my log cabin and getting started, i already feel at home here.
                        see you around the forum.

                          Welcome Steve, But a log cabin in England. That does not fit into my idea of English homes. Maybe a Manor house, or something like that.

                          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.

                            Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                            Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                            My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                            I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                            Was it a good idea.....?...

                            Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                            The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                            I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
