        Nothing wrong with these Kelly. Once they are cleaned up, they'll look great. Now wasn't it worth all the minor headaches? Now I want to see one of Minnesota.

          There is NO WAY I will be doing the rest of the 46 states. I honestly had thought about ordering the other patterns before I started on these. Now I'm glad I didn't order them. You all would end up corresponding with me in the nut house.

          My family better stay put where they are. No new states.

          Mike, it would just be wrong for a Wisconsin girl to scroll Minnesota.

            That's very true, Carl. When you live in a place you sometimes wonder why tourists want to visit it ..lol I've only been in 2 of those states Arizona and Georgia - the latter only briefly for a couple of days as a result of an airline screw-up .. they were very different to anything in the UK or Canada and very different to each other - I could understand the Arizona accent ...

            I guess Nova Scotia's out of the question too then, Kelly?

              Ian,

              Are you saying we talk with an accent here in the south? I don't think so, you maybe hear with an accent. I have to admit I've been here more than 5 years and the hubby is a true southerner. Sometimes, I have trouble understanding what he's saying and I have to ask him to spell it.

              And, no I definitely won't be doing Nova Scotia. Sorry.

                  Kelly, your attempts at fretwork will be well recieved. Think of it as cutting out simpler shapes, but do your drilling or turning on the little pieces.No matter what type of scrollsawing you do, its all still making one cut at a time. I think you done good!!!
                  Mike wants a Minnesota one??????????????????? all i can say is LOL ! Dale

                        Those look really good, Kelly! A little sandpaper and you're good to go.

                        Fretwork is one of my favorite forms of scrolling. To look at, that is. With a bottom-feeding saw. it's a chore and I empathize.

                          One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                          That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                          I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                          Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
