    Central PA is kind of large. Can you narrow it down? I'm in Rouzerville, PA, on the MD border.

      I have always thought it would be fun to belong to a scroller club, but there are not local. Recently I was invited to attend a local turner club meeting and I met a few members that also scroll. I am thinking of joining, just to be where other wood workers are and I also do some turning although not my main interest. There is also a pretty active carver club in my area. Look around around for any kind of wood club or got to a local advertised wood related show and talk to the artists. Also check out local bazaars especially this time of year and if you see some wood work displayed, talk to the vendor. May lead to something.

        My Husband belongs to a woodworkers club which has all woodworkers including a lot of scrollers. Google counties near you for woodworker clubs.

          Excellent advice Paul. Most woodworkers and wood crafters are multi faceted. I have met many people at our craft fair that scroll and I have made every effort to have them join our club. Almost all of our scrolling club members turn and carve.
          The Pennsylvania area around Hershey, Lebanon and East Petersburg, home of Fox Chapel, used to have some very large clubs and used to host some very big Scroll saw picnics. My suspicion is that many of these clubs have "aged out".

              I did indeed have the blade in upside down. I was using some Bosch blades that I picked up from Lowes.
              On Friday I got some Olsen blades in the mail. I hadn't ever seen any blades this thin. It was a bit of a struggle seeing the teeth, but I was able to feel the top and bottom of the blade...

              It is a pattern from Neal Moore's book "Wildlife Portraits in Wood." He has some other interesting designs in that book and gives full instructions on how best to make each project.

              Each of the pattern parts are cut from a piece of 12mm plywood. Then they are stained their respective...

              I received mine yesterday but didn't get to look through until this (Sunday) afternoon. Carole had another great article in it. This one was on a Dice Tower.

              When looking at the dice tower, I didn't notice the author until I was the next page and I looked back. It was Carole!

              Very well done. Can you show a side view to get a feel for the depth?
