                Excellent work, Robert - I'm sure that family composite will be much appreciated - what a great idea.

                The dog portrait is great fun too ...

                      Congratulations on a fine job. So much of what is scrolled does not move me but that one of your family does. Both you and your father can be very proud.

                            thanx everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I would have never gotten here without you guys Dad got pretty choked up on the portrait ....he fought it best he could ( he is rarely emotional in public ) , but the look on his face made every hour of effort worth it
                            thanx again !

                              Very Very nice, Robert. As far as forgeting and leaving the glass in I always do. The glass is easier to clean than someone trying to wipe dust off a picture and come to you in tears asking if you can fix it.

                              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                                Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                                Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
