  • Hello, From Eastern Nebraska!

    Just want to say hi to everyone and SCROLL-ON!

    My name is Rick and I'm a retired Teamster and live here in Omaha!

    I've been a woodworker for over thirty year's, both as a hobby pastime and professional. I have been doing serious scroll sawing for about 12 year's and most of my interest is in Intarsia and Fret Scrolling. I'm an RBI person and recently bought me a Hawk G4, and love it! I'm President of the Omaha Woodworkers Guild and like to help and learn from other scroller's and other people.

    Thanks for having me aboard and change that blade often,
    Old Scrollers Never Die...They Just Saw Away!

              Welcome, Rick. I've only been woodworking for a short time so I always am glad to see seasoned 'pros' like yourself join the group. Hope we get to see some of your work.

                            Welcome Rick. I remember going to Nebraska as a kid and when I got out tof the car I was neary blown away. When my Father picked me up, I asked him how long does the wind blow? His comment was "Forever". So we moved to Kansas where the wind don't blow one day a year.

                            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                                That is...

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
