    I would like to know if there are any new classes for beginners starting up in the next few months in the suburbs just south of Chicago, ILL. Best near Tinley Park, Orland Park, Palos Heights,Palos Hills,Oak Lawn, or Hickory Hills. Thanks, Bill

    Have you tried the adult education classes at night at local high schools? That's where my husband and I started wood working.

      If you Have a Woodcraft store near by, they usually have classes.

        Hi,

        I don't know of any classes on the south side of Chicago, but you are welcome to come meet the Chicagoland Scrollers. Perhaps someone in that group can help you get started. Our next meeting is January 24 from 1 to 3 PM. We meet in the Hobby Lobby at the corner of Cass and Ogden in Westmont.

        We have members from all over the Chicagoland area. You will have the chance to meet a great bunch of folks who are all avid scrollers. Hope to see you there.

        Pat L.

          I would not use regular plywood but Baltic Birch is different. On Steve Garrisons Facebook page someone posted a shell with either Baltic Birch or something like Spectraply. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of tearing or splintering with either cutting or sanding.

          Using solid...

          Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

          I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

          I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

          And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
