In addition to The LIWC there will be two Turning Clubs, two Carving Clubs and a Scrollsaw Club exhibiting. The Long Island Scrollsaw Association will be hosting a scroll saw "picnic". A plane shaving contest is scheduled with prized awarded to the thinnest continuous shaving. Prizes will include items donated by Lie-Nielsen and others.

          Sawdustjoe,
          How about moving it closer to California - it sounds like a lot of fun! (and work)

            Well, we got one in Portland Or, the end of July. That is a little closer. For more info check the Wooden Teddy Bear site.

            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.

                I'm hoping to be able to make it on Sunday (Saturday's out as I have a fair). do you happen to know what the admission is? The website doesn't have that info. It would likely be a family outing so I want to make sure I have enough cash on hand.
                Thanks,

                Kevin

                  Looking For Mom and Baby Animal Pattern
                  by Quartz43
                  I made these simple animal patterns some time ago and gave to my Grandkids. They play with them a lot and have gotten broken so I need to make new ones. Of course, I can not find the pattern and can not remember where I have seen it.

                  Can anyone tell me where to get the pattern?

                  I have grown to like the Pegas brand MGT blades . for this thickness the blade number varies from brand to brand, The TPI (teeth per inch) is more important the Pegas 5 is 11.3 and the 7 is 10.4 TPI.

                  I also the Olson Mach series the #7 has 8 TPI and really works great on thick wood....

                  The sales at my market is off the charts. We do Saturday and Sunday but I’m home cutting for next week and Bruce is there for the 3 hours today mostly for pick ups. My entire stock inventory is just about gone! Bruce made 8 pepper grinders. Only 1 left. Angels, birdhouses flying off the trees. Baskets...

                  I have a Micro Mark drill press that I use for the tiny holes when doing delicate fretwork. I am happy with that.
                  This saw is too limiting especially for any bevel cuts. The blade change process would drive me nuts, and the other concern is blade tension. It is like the ancient deltas, spring...
