  • This is what inspired me

    to get back into my woodworking.
    I don't have the scroll saw yet, but plan on getting one soon, as soon as I get a couple of other problems out of the way.

    I bought this fretwork plaque at a craft fair a couple weeks ago. I paid $30.00 for it but I know that man put in alot of time on it. $30.00 to me was a steal.

      Yes, that was a steal.. I sure hope my son-in-law did not sell the one I made like that for him at that price.

          You're welcome and thank you all for the compliments...it's not my work but I did want to show it off. He did a beautiful job.
          I hope to do something similar one day soon.

            Beauty message turned into a beauty piece of art. Catlyn once you start scrolling, work into it slowly. Don't make a piece like that your first attempt or it might be your last. You have to crawl before you walk and run.

              I will!
              I have done some scrolling a long while back.....but that cheap scroll saw didn't last long and I never got another one.
              But now I'm just itching to get back into it.
              I will take it slow though to start. I have a few patterns picked out that I know would not be very difficult.

                Another tip for you and any other new scrollers or scrollers that want to brush up their skills: Sheila Landry has an excellent scrolling tutorial on Lumberjocks.com with videos.

                    Hot Springs Crafts Fair.....
                    But I think I remember the guy selling those pieces was from Pine Bluff.
                    It was a big crafts fair and it is juried. None of this stuff coming in from China and Mexico.....EXCEPT one guy had this metal yard art........and it was out of Old Mexico. The guy said his son designs it, orders it from Old Mexico and goes down there and picks it up.
                    I make no apologies about it....I don't like this stuff coming in from another country. And I won't buy it.
                    If I'm going to spend money I'm going to support crafters from the USA.

                      Catlyn,
                      Most scroller would stack cut some like that. Maby 5 or 6 pieces of 1/16" Baltach Birch. That is how he makes money.

                        Glad things worked out.

                        I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                        Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.
