    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".

              That is one where you tell Kevin we really don't need to know until at least 6 months after it happened. There are lots of crazy people out there....

              I really don't know what to say about that--other than I think I tried to treat "that" guy for chest pains 35 years ago in a mobile home (trailer).
              Glad Kevin got out with nothing more than a great story for the guys back at the water cooler.

              You're absolutely right -

              Last week, a lady who had picked one of my cards at the downtown show, called and asked if she could come out and look at my bowls. She came an hour later, walked up to my latest bowl and asked the price. I told her and she whipped a check on me. About the third...

              When I figured out what you were doing, I figured you would have to remove a ton of wood to get the movement to sit correctly. Really like the numbers. Any guess on weight?
