    Hi

    Does anyone know the web address of Judy Peterson's site. I found it a little while ago and now can't seem to find it again - I thought I'd bookmarked it ..

      Mmm if she hasn't I must be going mad - I distinctly rember looking at it - there was a picture somewhere on it of a limited edition puzzle of a dragon and tree and I think the site said something about Fantanimals ..?? Also something about being able to order her books through FC....

      I'm wondering about my sanity now ..lol

        Hi, Puzzled Moose -

        We just checked out and joined the forum this very day. "We" consists of Judy and Dave Peterson. The Tree and Dragon is one of Judy's puzzles. The web site where you found that puzzle is Korval.com, a service of SRM Publisher Ltd.. The Tree and Dragon is the logo for the Liaden Universe, the science fiction brainchild of Steve Miller and Sharon Lee.

        Our pattern books are published by Fox Chapel and are available on their site as well as on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

        We watch the forum at least periodically in the future and try to answer questions on a more timely basis!

        Dave (and Judy) Peterson

          Judy (and Dave), since you posted here, I want to say that I love your patterns! The fantasy book propelled me into this hobby, and now I am a total wood junkie. The local hardwood shop sees me coming now.

          Thanks for sharing your talents!

          P.S. Anybody know a good place to get aspen? The local shop doesn't carry it.

            Dave and Judy I just want to say Thanks for the great books full of the puzzles you folks have put out. These puzzles were what actually got me started in scroll-sawing and I continue to make them to this day. After cutting several of these out of 3/4 woods I gained experience and enough knowledge and have found thinner woods to be a breeze to cut.

            They are my biggest selling item and are given annualy to family and friends at Christmas. Great fun to cut and people really seem to like them. Had one lady last fall buy 6 and then come back for more which she special ordered, requesting specific patterns and exotic woods. She wound up buying a total of 24. Seems the Dragons made out of Purple Heart were the big hittters!

            Can you possibly give me a bit of advice on how you display and "package" your puzzles? I currently set mine up on a table and have built a display board which holds 20 varieties but have the problem when people decide to buy one as they kind of come apart when handled. Also have a tub with puzzles in Ziplock bags for people to choose from. I was thinking of maybe getting one of those food storage widgets (for lack of a better term) and sealing them in plastic this way. Would this work while continuing to display the way I have been so as to allow people to see just how they fit together?

            Anyway, Thank you once again for the great puzzles and look forward to new books and new patterns from you folks!

            Pat

            PS. When I first started I was using a Dremel but upgraded to a Dewalt and found my cuttings to be much faster and better quality.

              Dear Pat,

              Thanks for your kind remarks.

              The Summer 2005 Issue (No. 19) of Scroll Saw Work Shop magazine contains an article we wrote called "How to Display at Craft Shows." It includes a picture of our display - which will probably be overkill for you. Still, it gives us the stability we didn't have when we were using tables.

              When a customer has selected a puzzle, we put it in a gift box surrounded with tissue paper. A certain amount of care must be taken in handling them, of course. We've never tried sealing them, partly because we find our customers like to see and handle the puzzle they're buying.

              If you decide to try it we'd like to know how it works out.

              Sincerely,

              Dave Peterson
              For Judy (and myself, of course)

                Judy (who is currently visiting her Mom in AZ) will be pleased to read your note when she returns. It's nice to know you've had a positive effect on the lives of others (and had a good time while you did it).

                We buy a lot of our aspen from Ocooch Hardwoods in Richland Center, WI. This is their website: Quality Lumber at Affordable Prices! Hardwood Lumber for all your woodworking needs!. The owner, Floyd Ocooch, is real good to work with.

                  Thanks!

                  I have bought some wood from Mystic Hardwood but sadly they seem to have gone out of business and I was looking for another source. Ocooch's site looks good!

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...

                    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
