  • New to this great site!

    Hello all,

    Great site, I have been scrolling on and off for the past ten years, mostly off.
    I make mostly collapsible baskets. I am looking for a horse pattern that I might be able to use in the baskets. Any thoughts?

    A bit about me, I live in Summerville, SC My scroll saw is a dw788, a move up for me from the old delta I first started on.

    Best Regards,
    Mike "Pep"

            Yay, welcome Pep!

            I've never tried those baskets - collapsible or otherwise - but I do love the look and want to learn to make them.

            This is definitely the site to hang out at for advice and support and just good companionship.

                  Welcome, Pep. Nice to see another seasoned scroller whose brain I can pick! For horse patterns the WoodenTeddybear is a good place to start.

                          So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                          I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!

                          Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                          Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
