  • My 2nd project.

    You guys are right. This is addicting. Now that I've had a little practice I'm going to hold off until my BB plywood from Sloan's comes. My wife actually likes my first 2 pieces and told me they were hers, I couldn't give them to my mother or anybody else. I told her that was fine and when I have better ones on nicer wood, I would give them to my mother.

    I'm anxious for the wood and some new blades. I don't even know what kind of blades I'm using right now because they came with the used saw. All I know is for the outside I used a wider pin end skip tooth and the insides I used a plain end thinner skip tooth. Talk about a scare when one breaks though. It wakes you up.

    By the way, I wish more scrollers would post their work here for us newbies to enjoy, or maybe you are but I'm looking in the wrong place.

    Happy sawing everyone and thanks to everyone for their help, even if you didn't know you provided it. I read dozens of these posts before I ever started and learned a lot that way.

    You are doing remarkably well. This swan is a really nice design, I like it. Where is that pattern from? I think you are doing great so far, all your lines turn out pretty even and uniform, you did great! Actually though, that swan looks more like a loon to me though ! Dale

                The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
