        Being new to scroll sawing, It's actually a magazine that got me started. My Wife and I were at our local Woodworking Shop and she picked up a copy of Creative Woodworks and Crafts. After we got home, I found myself looking it over that night and I liked the assortment of Wildlife patterns that they included. It simply simply created a desire where I felt that I just had to make that.

        The most intense they had was a fretwork Owl that took me more than 10 hours to cut out. I'm currently working on a Hawk that was included in the March edition. I'm about half way through it. It's very similar to the owl pattern.

        From what I like to see, the Creative Woodworks has the wildlife things I really like. What I saw in SSW was more games and things that just don't interest me right now. Also, It may just be that the SSW issue my wife picked up was the Holiday edition. Very nice but I guess I just wasn't in the mood for that kind of work right now.

          My opinion: I currently subscribe to both CW&C and SSW, SSW is the one I prefer. Why? Because they tend to have more articles that are instructional in nature, vice just a pattern to copy with short instructions on how to cut or assemble the project. An example is the Steve Malavolta article "Layered Marquetry Puzzles" in the latest edition of SSW. Now I may never make such a puzzle, but there are numerous methods pointed out and explained that are applicable to many other projects. Bob D are you listening. Then again I probably have a minority opinion, I usually do.

            Plain-ol-Ed - I agree!

            I like the extra reading material included in SSWS also. And I often take instructions for one thing and use it for others.

              You two have kinda hit on my philosophy for the magazine. Some people get the magazine to cut out patterns, so I try to provide a variety of patterns. Some people get the magazine to learn techniques, so I try to find as many new techniques as possible. Some read for inspiration, so pieces like Steve M.'s puzzles and the Vasillia and the White Horseman show what can be done on the Scroll Saw. We try to provide as much of a mix as possible.


              FYI in the upcoming issue, we've got a wolf portrait silhouette planned for the wildlife lovers and in the issue Ed referred to, there is a deer silhouette pattern...

                      Elwood,
                      I strongly recommend you try SSW - either by trying a free copy today, or by searching your bookstores or even Home Depot. You are in for a real treat!

                        I don't subscribe to magazines, but my wife will attest to the fact that I go through withdrawls if I dont find the magazine I am looking for.
                        We all like patterns but there is nothing more frustrating than opening up a magazine that is wrapped in plastic along with another publication only to find the patterns are not really what you are looking for.
                        I am sure I have well over a couple of thousand patterns now. Most I will never do. What I will do is apply the ideas I see in the magazines to other projects I work on.
                        My thoughts are if you get one good idea from a magazine it is worth its price. At this rate I think I owe SSW far more than they owe me.
                        The quality of the patterns is also superior to the other magazines out there.
                        Keep doing what you are doing. Srollsawing as a hobby is growing in leaps and bounds. I do demonstrations at our local fair and countless people dust off their saws and join in once they see what can be done. It is an endless circle, inspire us, we inspire others and they buy the magazine. What a wonderful world

                            I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

                            This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

                            Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
