    Hi, after lurkin in the shadows I’ve joined.
    I'm pretty new to scroll work, My love of wood comes from my dad who was a cabinet maker till 3 years ago, I’ve taken up the scroll saw as an extension of my art. I have been sculpting and painting now for 25 years. So now I think I’m ready for wood.

                    Thanks for the warm welcome, I am base just near whitby.
                    up till now most of the stuff I've done is fantasy or wildlife sculpting and along with it come's plenty of pencil work, I hope this will translate well into scroll work. I'm working on some patterns right now and hope maybe to offer them for download, well see how I progress.
                    Most of my scroll work has been along side my dad, doing inlays for him as well as trying my hand in marquetry.

                    Regards Pete

                      Sounds interesting, Pete. And that's a nice part of Yorkshire to be in - I always liked the drive over the N Yorks Moors from Pickering to Whitby.

                        I only ever got to eat the fish & chips in Whitby once. But they were soooo memorably tasty!

                        Welcome to the forum, Pete . I'm looking forward to learning more about your artwork and seeing how it informs your scrolling.

                              Yuk no - just salt and vinegar ...

                              There are very few foods I don't like - think Human garbage Bin - but I don't like peas in any form .. and definitely not mushy ...

                              I like mushy baked beans ....

                                by Linda In Phoenix
                                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                                New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                                At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                                I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
