  • Another Central NYer Here

    Brief intro here folks. Been "kinda scrolling" for 20 plus yrs. Got a little more serious just in the past 2 or 3. I've sold at craft shows, but mainly scroll for the relaxation. I love the way the rest of the world just disappears when I sit down at my lil Delta 16" VS (soon to be retired in favor of a 788). I'm fortunate that I go to the shop in the middle of the night if I choose. I rent a space in an old fertilizer factory! Cozy, warm and well lit...essentials here in central NY in the freezing months.

    I am in hopes to glean some fresh ideas from the folks well as add a few.

          I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

                I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
