    I could live in that shed. 😉 Looks like something out of Hansel and Gretel!

    Tanks Jo. If I did the fairy door then I would need to build a tiny mower for the fairy. I built the shed about 2 months after shattering my right elbow. I needed to prove to myself that I could still build stuff. I did buy a pneumatic framing nailer as I couldn't hit the head of of a nail with my left....

    A very nice looking shed, indeed! And a round top door, to boot! The only thing missing is a matching fairy door.

    I too went through the progression. A pined Dremel, (garage sale) I might have used it once, as it used non standard blades. Then a Craftsman, inherited from my father. I cut Big ginger bread for a shed that I built. It taught me two things. using multiple tools to clamp and un-clamp blades for a 2...

    I too wonder how many beginners that get one of the cheap china made models just quit in frustration and never return to this wonderful craft. I also wonder how many sales are lost of a tool brand for their other products by putting their names on inferior scroll saws. If you get stuck with an inferior...

    I started with a Craftsman (about 2 decades ago), that could do pin in as well as pinless blades. It wasn't the greatest, but it gave me enough saw to learn with and discover I really enjoyed scrolling. After just a couple of years, I promoted myself to a much better saw---because I knew that I would...

    handibunny
    I last used a spiral for cutouts on a yarn bowl. Fortunately, the channel was wide enough to get a small burr inside and smooth things out. Then a lot of sanding, but the bowl came out so well that a friend requested 2 for gifts. Given that this friend helped wire my shop, I couldn't charge him a...

    I too have to go crazy slow and steady to do a fairly straight line, but I cannot perfect perfectly straight with the spirals. They are the ideal blade though for things like fretwork cutouts for the spots on a leopard and other things in nature that require irregularity!
