    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.

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.

                  I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
                  But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

                  I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...
