    Hi everyone. My name is Danny and my son in law recently gave me his grandfathers Hegner scroll saw because he doesn't have the time or interest to use it at this time. I thanked him and said I would use it until I am like his grandfather and can't anymore. I have always wanted to make a mantle clock so I am going to try one after I practise a while. Anyway I have enjoyed reading some of your notes and I am sure there are many people out here that can give me advise. Take care EH!

        Hi Danny

        Nice to have you with us . A case of, "the king is dead, long live the king", eh? I'm sure you'll have great fun with your Hegner and soon lose that 'rookie' tag.

                          He gave you a Hegner? Lucky so-and-so!

                          Welcome to the club! What kind of mantle clock are you contemplating? What are you going to cut to practice for the clock? Beware that once you start cutting, you'll find more and more things you want to do!

                            Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                            Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                            My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                            I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                            Was it a good idea.....?...

                            Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                            The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                            I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
