          Charlie. do you resaw? do you get to the end of the wood? then there is just the bark leaft. or one piece before the bark.? and what about the outersides of you cuttings. do you do something with that.? what do you do with the scrapts. do you save them for small pieces. or glue them, together.?
          I have some pretty big pieces , after scrolling my pattern. and just hate to trow the leftovers in the fire box. do you save any of this for something in you mind. and if you do what would that be. ? I wish when my hubby cut something out of walnut, I could have a piece he trough out. But it went ito the fire wood. drats. that could make a ornement or something. or the bark, what do you do with that. ?. looks so pretty. isn't there something . just rambling. your friend Evie

            My small pieces that are big enough to get anything useful to me are put in a rubbermaid tub and thats where I first look for pieces to use on things. The smaller pieces get tossed into a box and are used for the campfire when camping. It makes nice conversation around the fire, and as my daughter would agree, I say "every piece of wood tells a story" She gets sooo sick of me saying that and telling the story of that piece as its tossed into the fire. Its amazing, I can go through boxes and boxes of scraps, and I can tell you exactly what project it came from. I used to use a lot of my little scraps in the weber grill instead of charcoal, it just makes food taste better then charcoal I think. And yes, I was careful not to use any toxic woods or finishes in the wood I cooked with.The reason I no longer use them in the grill................My wife threw away our grill because of a bent leg on it!!!!! Isnt that awful!!!!!!!!! Dale

              I use whatever I have and if I do have any left ill save it for another project, like that eagle ,some of it was done with scrap pieces of pine I had laying around . If I can use it why not lol right now ive got a pile of scrap that im sure ill use eventually , works great for the small pieces even if I dont know what im going to use it for , its always good to have a little extra :-)


              ya never know what ya might need it for :-)


              Charlie,


              the only thin I dont save is the really junk scraps that cant really be used for anything anyways .

                  Yup, it was perfectly good still, all I had to do was put a small hunk of 4X4 under the one side and she was as good as new!!! I was so mad when I realized it was gone!

                        Hi Evie,

                        The internal fret pieces go in the fireplace. Larger pieces go in the scrap box - actually its scrap boxes - to be used for glue-ups (pen blanks for the lathe, bases, real small bowls, etc....). When the boxes overflow, I'll trim up the chunks, take a few pictures, and sell them on eBay.

                          Did you tell your wife this isnt the old west, just because a horse broke a leg doesnt mean you put it down!!! I'm sure that grill had many BBQ's left on it! What a shame!

                              Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                              Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                              Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
