                        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

                            With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

                            I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.
