  • VW 1960s camper

    The vehicle of my childhood is finished. The license plate commemorates the city of Salzgitter, Germany, my father's initials and his birth year.
    Childhood memories. The family (father, mother, five children) used to go to church in this vehicle. But usually we had to walk home, because Dad insisted on chauffeuring little ole' ladies back to theirs.

    Pattern by Fred and Julie Byrnes. Found it on Woodarchivers for free but not legally so. Through the kind people in the Scrollsaw Village, I got the website and contacted them. Julie Byrnes kindly sent me the pattern.

    I really like your wood choices. And the special meaning for you. How big is it?

            Very nicely done - your stories and provenance make it special.

            Great Job!

                Dan A
                Every year for Christmas my wife renews my subscription to the magazine. This year she managed to subscribe to it twice. She thinks she was able to cancel one of the subscriptions but since it hasn't arrived yet she wonders if she managed to cancel both orders. Is there a way for us to find out if the...

                I would be curious also. Back in March of 2014 the switch on my Delta quit working. Now last weekend it quit working again. Don't know if it's the switch or not. And of course I had a request from a friend of my wifes to cut something for a little girl. We've been talking about maybe getting a new scroll...
