  • Hello from Oregon

    Hi from the Pacific Northwest. My name is Chris and I mainly do intarsia scrolling. I've been doing intarsia for about 2 1/2 years. I have a DeWalt 788 scroll saw and a Delta bench top bandsaw. My other main hobby is fishing, my husband and I go fishing whenever we can. I'm looking forward to getting acquainted here, thanks for letting me join.
    What! There's no coffee?!!

                You've got to have more tools than that. I have the same two tools and there is no way I could do intarsia.

                Anyway, welcome and I'll be anxiously awaiting pictures of what my tools are capable of.

                BTW, my other main hobby is also fishing, even though I've never caught a fish quite like that.

                    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!
                    Yes Mike, I do have more tools than that, a drill press, bench top belt sander, router with table, a couple motors with sanding drums, dremel and attachments etc. but the DeWalt rules, the rest are there to serve it.

                    Thank goodness Bill, I was afraid no one would make any....hmmm I think I can smell it now....

                    Yes Gill, she did hold me very nicely but I bit her thumb anyway

                    Thanks again everyone,

                      Hi Chris, welcome to the forum. We have a couple of other Oregonians here. I am from Myrtle Creek, about a hundred miles from the California border on I-5. What part of the state do you call home???

                        Hi Chuck, nice to meet you! I live in Brownsville, about 20 miles north of Eugene and about 4 miles east of I-5. I've been to Myrtle Creek but not for quite awhile. I work in Eugene but seldom get south of there anymore.
                        Thanks for the welcome, I look forward to my time here.

                            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
