  • 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.

                  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.

                    Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                    We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                    What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
