  • I think I have him hooked

    He's a beginner, so I guess it fits here, 9-yr old great-grandson - this is the third run through of the practice pattern. He's already cut a star and a heart. I'm going to have him cut out a cat puzzle from the Saw magazine next.

                Reminds me of when I started my grandson on a scroll saw. It gives them an other way to be creative. Have fun.

                  Hugs to you, Betty, for your zany posts that always bring a smile, and to you, Scott, who are usually on the giving end of things. And to everyone else who makes this forum the special place that gives so much, and refuses to give up. 🤗

                  I need hug therapy. Between my wife then I having Covid we pretty much isolated the last month. No energy still. Have not even walked into the shop in weeks.

                  I did touch therapy since it helps my sister in law so much. I saw it, I touched it and the money flew out of my bank courtesy of Drs. JC Penney and New Balance. Back to the saw tomorrow. I haven’t touched it in a week. And the beat goes on.
