    Finally received my new DeWalt saw on Saturday, LOVE IT!!! So I deceided to make the wife and kids something besides candy for there Easter basket's. What do you think? Be gentle! And Happy Easter everyone! O yeah, I made them out of 3/4" hardwood, using #1 blade and I only broke one blade, and it broke after feeding it through a hole and put the tension on it!

                I did not dare use a #1 for a first project.

                That is really nice work.

                Congrats, and enjoy.

                        Well Done!

                        The font patterns can be very tricky, so accomplishing this as a beginner deserves applause.

                          Really nice work - which font?

                          Hi There, it's a really nice piece of work, just one question which font did you use? Is there a list somewhere of suitable fonts for scroll saw work?

                          Best wishes

                            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                            I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                            FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                            Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                            I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
