  • Greetings from Litlhof in the Smoky Mtn. Area

    Hi Everyone, my name is Walt Rollison and I live in Seymour Tennessee, about 15 miles north of Pigeon Forge. I have been seriously scrolling for about 3 years, but off and on for about 40. My main interest at the moment is intarsia and I only completed about 8 or 9 projects so far.
    Best regards to all.

    As long as you know you're green, you grow but when you think you're ripe you begin to rotten.

    Hi! Walt, and a warm welcome to the friendliest scrolling club on the web, and the most helpful too.

      Hi Walt and welcome to the board. Kevin's right - this is definitely the most friendly and helpful forum I've come across.

        You're from the area I call heaven on earth. The smokies are beautiful.

              Welcome, Walt, I've been scrolling about 3 years, too, not the 40 years part, tho.

              Let's see what you've be up to.

              The people are the greatest here.

                  Welcome Litlhof. Have been to Pigeon Forge several times vacationing. Nice area. Last time we were there, I had a Honda Prelude that was a blast to drive up and down the mountain. Let us see some of your work, please.

                    Betty - Norma is 5ft 1", her sister who lives next door and often eats with us is 5ft 3". Their father who is recovering from recent knee surgery and staying with us at the moment is also about 5ft 3". I'm almost 5ft 11". You see my dilema!

                    Thanks Tony for the safety advice. Being one eyed these days I am definitely going to be taking extra care to wear suitable face protection. As to the safety videos, yes, I've already checked out several and pulled up a lot of very useful information. Whilst I've never turned wood before as a practising...

                    Betty - yes my design. I'm editing the video I made while making the feature ring.

                    Jim - I know I'm preaching to a member of the choir, but, please watch some of the Youtube videos on wood turning safety. There's a dozen or so of them out there. There are three words you'll hear a lot --...

                    Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
