  • New scroller from NYC

    Hello!

    I am relatively new to scrolling although I've done many larger woodworking projects in the past (bookshelves, cabinets, and bed frame). Last year, I took my first stab at intarsia using a palette of exotic woods, a borrowed Delta SS350LS, and a pattern of my own design.

    Just before Christmas, I bought myself a DeWalt DW788 and set it up in my father's shop. It's kind of difficult to house a scrollsaw in an 1BR apartment, so I go to my parents' house on weekends to do most of my work. My dad has been scrolling for about 20 years, and I'm sure that he will appreciate the difference between the 20 inch DeWalt and his 15 year old 16 inch Craftsman!

    I'm interested in intarsia and would like to try fretwork. I'm looking forward to picking up tips and ideas here!

    I've attached pics of my very first intarsia project - a fish, snail, and plant that I made for my custom-built 15 gallon aquarium stand.

        Thanks!
        I was happy with how the fish came out - especially considering it was my first attempt at intarsia. There are a few pieces that just didn't want to fit together despite two recuts and lots of careful sanding. I learned alot making that fish!

        Rolf, my parents are in Levittown (just south of Hicksville) and I am in Kew Gardens, Queens. My buddy from whom I borrowed the Delta saw is a woodturning member of the LIWC. I'll try to get out of work early to make one of the meetings.

                      This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                      Cute Pattern.
                      I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                      This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                      No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
