  • 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.

                          That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                          The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                          Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
