  • UK Forum

    This post is really aimed at the scrollers from the UK, but those from other places will be equally welcome to visit and contribute to the new scroll saw section that's just been created on the UK Workshop forum.

    You guys here are great, but sometimes the Brits need somewhere to discuss the little idiosyncrasies that confuse everyone else (like cricket, warm beer, Axminster Power Tools etc ). More than that, it's hoped that this new board will encourage more Brits to take up a form of woodwork that's still quite uncommon on this side of the Pond. Hopefully, having a gathering point that's easy for new scrollers to find will facilitate even more interaction with you good folks.

    Bob - I've asked the forum webmaster to include SSW&C in the links section !

          Great news Gill - I'll be there. Used to love a pub called "The Jolly Friar" back before becoming a domestic goddess.

          Sue would love for the two of us to be able to take off and go see you, but until I win the lottery - the UK Forum is as close as I can get... well that and cards via snail mail of course.

          Take care

              The new section has got off to a flying start, thanks mostly to the support of people who are members here. That's great! I'm sure it'll encourage shy newbies to join in.

              Cathy - that avatar isn't what it seems to be, but I'll discuss it off the forum with you .

                  Bruce at the sawmill

                  This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                  Cute Pattern.
                  I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                  No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
