  • Greetings from north Idaho

    I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I'm a retired forester and have had a hobby woodworking shop for many years, but have never owned or used a scroll saw.

    A few months ago I attended a woodworking show where some of the people were displaying and selling what I now know is "intarsia". I became fascinated with this artform. In the course of researching all of this, I visited lots of web sites, forums and message boards and bought a few books. I will buy my first scroll saw in March and see if I can learn to do intarsia and other forms of scroll saw art.

    So, I'm really premature in joining a forum, but I have been visiting this site for several weeks and you all have contributed a lot to my decision to try this scroll saw art and I wanted to let you know I appreciate it. I look forward to more visits to this group as a member.

        Welcome to the board. This board is a great place to grow and learn about scrolling. We have visitors like you who are brand new to those with decades of experince. You said your joining might be premature but I totally disagree. There are treads on different styles, blades, wood, saws and other topics. With this knowledge you will be better informed when you go to purchase your own equipment and supplies. If you have any questions just ask.

        Once again welcome......

          Steve, This old forester's first name is Bob. I confess to real ignorance in understanding and dealing with these forums. I don't know the terminology and how to navigate in them. Hope you'll bear with me. Bob

              Greetings, Bob. We're not all experts here so don't be bashful about asking questions or sharing your own knowledge.

                Hey Bob, welcome to the forum. Don't worry about being premature. Think of it this way, once you get your saw you will be a step ahead with all the good stuff you've learned here.

                Besides that, being a forester and woodworker yourself, you may be able to provide some valuable info as well. It's always good to have folks with expertise in different backgrounds. That way we all benefit!

                        I want to thank all of you folks for the warm welcome. I look forward to being involved with this group.

                        I have already found your experience and expertice to be helpful in my choice of a scroll saw. When I get back from sunny Arizona in March, I will order the Delta P 20. Shortly after that I expect to have LOTS of questions!! Thanks again, Bob

                          Welcome to the forum neighbor...lots of good info posted and discussed here. Are you farther north than Oldtown? If you don't count 4th of July, am two passes east of you. Welcome, and enjoy that P-20 when you get back from snowbirding.

                            AuDust, I'm south of Old Town....north of Coeur 'd Alene. Lets see...two passes east not counting 4th of july. That would put you east of Butte, Mt. Why, that's less than 500 miles and sure close enough to be neighbors in this country!! Let me know if you head in this direction...the pot's always on and the beer's always cold!!

                            The "snowbird" thing is a compromise.....I get to ice fish in January, my wife gets the warm sun in February. We get back by mid-March when the lakes in eastern Washington open up for some good trout fishing.
