  • 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 wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

        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.

                          Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                          For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
                          The laser doesn't care about grain....

                          A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
