    We all have certain projects that we make with someone in mind or for some special occasion. I was wondering if everyone would share the story behind their most memorable scrollsaw piece. The one that meant the most to you to scroll.

    Mine was an anniversary plaque I made for my wife. It was my third project on the scrollsaw. I really wanted it to look good. It didn't turn out as good as it would now that I have more experience, but she loved it and it now holds a prominent piece of wall real estate in our house. And even though it doesn't look as good as it could, I love it for what it means to us, and all the care and love that went into the making of it for her.

Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

    Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
