    So, I finished the Hippogriff, out of pine, from the “Fantasy & Legend Scroll Saw Puzzles” by Judy and Dave Peterson published by Fox Chapel. Here is a picture of it. Also is a puzzle of Pile of Pups from "Scroll Saw Art Puzzles" by Tony and June Burns published by, you guessed it, Fox Chapel.

      Bill,
      Cool job on the puzzles. Puzzles are among my very favorite things to scroll. How thick was your wood? Finding the right thickness is always my second hardest task (cutting is, of course, the first).
      Again - great job. What's next?

        Thanks, Carl and Yea the publishing company is really good I would recommend any books to any level scorller.

        Sandy, thanks to you,too. I used 3/4 inch wood. It stands up OK but I think 1 inch would be better, tho. It would be very hard for my saw to cut 1 inch wood. I got so much I want to do I don't know what to do next. Dose anyone else have more than one project going at once, or is it just a newbie thing? I just enjoy doing it.

          I think it is normal to have multiple jobs going at once.

            I have found it hard NOT to have more than one project at a time going. I'm doing my best since the whole shop was cleaned to keep it to just two projects. So far so good, but I've got a few more in just the planning/designing mode.

              Bill,
              I've only had my good saw for about 8 months, so I'm probably officially still a newbie too, but I've got at least several projects in the works at most times - some with the pattern glued on, some cut, ready to finish sand - some in the stages of the final finish. So I don't know whether It's just a newbie thing, and we'll grow out of it, or if everybody does it.
              When I can't get the nice thick wood the patterns call for, sometimes I just make the pattern a bit smaller - to keep it sort of in proportion. It may make the cutting a bit more challenging, but I don't know, 'cause I've never done them full size. Beginner's bliss, perhaps. My saw would cut over 2", but I'd have to go pretty slowly, so's not to lose accuracy.
              Now, what are you planning next - a dragon? That cool unicorn?
              I'm looking foreward to seeing it.
              Sandy

                The next puzzle from that book will be the phoenix. I have more to do before I get to that.

                Glad to hear that having more than one project going at once is normal.

                Thanks for the support I really love scroll sawing.

                  I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                  I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                  Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
