  • It's about time eh?

    I finally got pulled out of the basement and motivated to join here. I've follow CB Designs for some time in their trail of fame and decided it was about time to "get involved". I've been scrolling for about 3 years and designing scroll saw patterns for most of that as well. I've done vinyl signs for what seems like forever as well as digital graphic arts. It's a pleasure to be here and I hope I can contribute in a positive way.

        Welcome to our family Andy! Glad you decided to join in.

        Just a heads up to you fellow scrollers, Andy does some fantastic designs, I encourage you to check out his site. And if you like Automobiles you can't beat his designs. I've done several of them. As a matter of fact one of my first attempts was of your 55 Chevy pickup.

        Hope you enjoy your stay with us Andy, and visit often.

          Andy, it's great to have you with us. Whenever anyone asks how to design patterns, my standard reply is to point them towards this tutorial. Looks familiar, huh ?

          You've already helped so many scrollers all over the world; it's a delight to have a true scrolling hero on board.

              Seeing the word "Eh" on this thread made me guess it had to be a new Canadian member, welcome aboard Andy.

                Well well well, he's here!

                Welcome Andy, good to have you here. The forum is an active place, something I appreciate when it comes time to have my coffee.

                I am not sure about following our "trail of fame" as you put it, we are just two women with scrollsaws and some wood. Nothing famous here. Really really. I am sure more scrollers know your work than ours, with your years of offering free patterns before you made your patterns available to them through places like "The Wooden Teddy Bear", and other such pattern catalogues. I am sure the name Andy Deane is much more famous my friend! All deserving by the way.

                Your timing to join the SSWC forum is very good since Bob just began a board specifically for fretwork and portraits. I am sure you will be able to help countless members with their pattern requests and tutorials on how to use software programs to produce portraits.

                I look forward to seeing your contributions.

                Take care
                Toni

                  LOL that was my reaction immediately too Todd - I thought that the "Eh!" thing was a stereotype until I met my neighbour here who uses it in almost every sentence!

                  Welcome Andy. nice to see you here - you have some great patterns on your site.

                  You must be not too far from my partner, Sue's folks - they're in the Leamington area.

                      Thanks for such a warm welcome. I'm truly excited to be a member here and be able to develop contacts with so many people who's works I admire. I look forward to helping in any way I can as well. I'm not always "a bum" as Kevin so eloquently put it! LOL

                      I'm in Canada, yes, only about an hour from the Detroit/Windsor crossing and make it to Leamington frequently. I've only been in Canada for 9 years, originally from the good ol' USA. A buckeye by birth, grew up in Missoula, MT, and settle in the Fort Wayne, IN before chasing love across the border. "Eh" is the joke amongst friends here because I tend to use it more than they do ... when in Rome .... LOL

                      Anyway, thanks again and I look forward to a dusty future with "you's". You's ... another of their quirks up here. ROTF

                          Yup I notice that one too - first time I was in a beer store here the woman serving me said "I love you's guys accents". Me? Accent? What accent? LOL

                                One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                                That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                                I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                                Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
