  • 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.

                                I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...

                                Skimming through this post, I came across 1 response to Quartz and one to Bill Wilson as PMs from Kelly, a new editorial assistant, regarding our comments. Here is my 2 cents regarding the copying. To understand what we mean, please take the issue with the sword fish on the front and copy that on a...

                                I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index)....

                                It really isn’t that bright when you see them. I want to paint the rose and vine and leaves but he’s skeptical since I always say I hate to paint. I can actually paint just don’t like to that much. I think a dark red at the center of the rose graduating to a lighter shade on the outer edges and...
