    How long did you work on that piece Brent? Are the intricate intarsia patterns what you most enjoy?

    I don't think I could focus on one project that long... I believe it takes a huge committment. You should be proud.

    Take care

      Brent - That is a beautiful project. And I agree with Toni though it is one of my dreams to complete an Intarsia project and can only continue to dream of it turning out that nice. Commitment, time involved, I don't think I have the attention span required for a project like that!? ~Paul

              It's a magnificent panel. Well done !

                how long

                The hidden forest took me about 4 months to finish. Of coarse i did not work on it every day.The enjoyment to sit at my saw allows me to think of the blessing the lord has done. When I work on a special project for somebody I think about how much I love that person and what they meant in my life.The time in the shop takes me away from the rat race and the struggles of life. I love the hobbies of working with wood. I guess since I was just a small child being around tools have inspired my desire.I love projects to do for my kids like building a wood fence are redoing a bath room are building patio what ever it is.People at work can"t understand why I like to work. But I see it as a enjoyment.

                        Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                        He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                        I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
