  • Question for BobD


    In your "Practicing Techniques" message you mentioned taking a class recently. Since I only live about 15 miles away from Lebanon (Lititz) I figured I'd ask if you'd mind sharing some details about this class.
    Was it worth it?

    Actually, we had Ron Posten come to the office and give the staff at Fox Chapel Publishing a class--so I really can't answer your questions about pricing, etc.

    But I learned more in that class than I've learned in a year on my own! Everything from how to cut a smooth curve to cutting a straight line, and how to pivot in was awsome!

    I don't really know of many other classes around here, though...

    One thing, though, is that Ron highly reccomends John Nelson's Scroll Saw Workbook. We spent a good portion of the class just cutting John Nelson's first project...Ron is a big proponent of mastering the fundamentals first--the rest is really just following the suggestions of a pattern!

    Hope this helps!

      For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
      The laser doesn't care about grain....

      A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
