    Any day you can meet with fellow WW and help them develop/expand is a great day in my book. Thanks for taking time to help others.

    the program went extremely well thanks for the ideas , there may be 2 more people interested in learning but we will see, i took a few finished projects, different blades, drill bits, let them see some cuts i was working on, the real thrill was passing around the newest issue of the magazine and a current issue of creative woodworks and crafts gave them this link , one guy took a subscription card from the magazine, so it turned out well for everyone, i even sold two pieces and got an order for another one

    I have done several programs for my clubs as well as some WW shows in my area. I highly recommend doing some compound cutting projects as part of your program. Folks are totally amazed at how you can yield an item like a bird house or ornament out of a solid block of wood. After cutting it I kinda re-assemble the block and pass it around.

    thank you, i have been posting pics of finished projects on my face book page, and have sparked a lot of interest , one friend actually dug out his fathers old saw and was thinking of starting so hopefully he"ll be at that meeting, im trying to get a group started up here in nw pa but so far not much interest

    Since you only have 20-30 minutes, I would aim toward trying to spark interest among the group in learning more. I would probably start with a brief intro on basic stuff, just telling them about how a scroll saw works, applying patterns and following lines. Then I would spend some time showing them what types of things can be made with a scroll saw. They should see a range of beginner to advanced type work in different styles, so that they understand that it doesn't necessarily take years of experience and thousands of $$ in tools to create some pretty cool stuff. Take as many of your own projects as practical. For project styles such as intarsia that you don't have samples of, maybe take a copy of a few pattern catalogs. Let them ask questions and adapt the rest of the presentation to what seems to be of most interest to them. It would be great if there would be enough interest to start a beginner's class, or at least an opportunity to mentor a couple of the guys.

    Good luck, let us know how it turns out!
