  • My other beginner scrollsawer

    I've started working on my letters. I went to take a break and this is what I come back to. He's 9 and a chip off the old block. I may get it back when school starts.

    Much better than finding a PS2 controller or a satelite remote in his hand.

    Looks like you'll have to buy another scrollsaw.

        I was his age when I was first introduced to scrolling -- those are the best memories I have of my childhood is the years I spent in the woodshop of a neighbor..

          It's great to see a youngster who's so keen. If those trees on the front lawn vanish soon, you'll know who to blame .

            I hope my Grandkids will want to start when they get old enough that would be great to teach them. He looks very happy to start.

            Good luck,

              Sure beats wondering where he's at!
              That'll come when he dicovers girls don't have cooties.

              There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

                I know these saws are relatively safe, but blades do break & things can happen. I guess I'm trying to say I hope he wears safety glasses when he cuts!

                    I am a proud and partial father but my son really is a gem.
                    He is super keen to anything mechanical. When he was 2 1/2 he took the knob off the bathroom door with a screwdriver. He helps work on his(our) go-karts and is helping me build a shed. He has even helped with the foundry stuff.

                    He has always been under foot whenever I have a project going. So far we have kept it simple enough using relatively safe tools like a sander, hammer, impact gun, and drill. I don't think you can start too early with kids. All it takes is a little patience. But that is no different than training anyone. The point being, a little patience early, more than pays for itself.

                    I will of course post his first actual project. He is working on a small piece of clipart from word.

                    Good point Randy. We do a good job with hearing and eye protection using the obvious tools and this should be no exception.

                      It's a well known fact that girls never had cooties. Only boys have cooties.

                          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                          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.
