    Where are some great places to get scrolling blanks? Im looking to get pieces approx. 12" wide (like cedar, ash, hickory, maple, etc)

    please give me any and all good resources you may have.

    ~Thanks for your help,
    Tim Bonner

    Tim, in an issue of SSWC you will find a heap of great scrollsaw ready wood suppliers. i generally get mine from www.petersonscustomlumber.com or www.ocoochhardwoods.com and another good one is www.sloanswoodshop.com . Heritage is another, but sorry, I dont know the link off the top of my head.There are many suppliers catering to us scrollers, and if you dont see the sizes you want or need, email them, they will probably have some for you. Also, on the left of the page here is a place that says other great sites, you will find some suppliers there as well. Dale

      Thanks abunch Dale, I knew about sloans but hadn't yet run across those other two. I've bought a bit from heritage, but it looks like ocoochhardwoods has as good if not a better variety.

      Thanks,
      Tim

      If anyone else knows of more please let me know as i don't get SSXC magazine. I appriciate it.

        Give www.memphishardwoodlumber.com a try. Paul is great to deal with and they have a pretty decent selection.

          Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

          Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

          Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

          My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
          I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
          Was it a good idea.....?...

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
