  • Wooden toy garage

    Not made with the scrollsaw, but wanted to show it anyway. Made for a twin who turned 3 last sunday, requested by their mother. The garage was ordered in clear lacquer, so had to use as little screws and nails as possible because they would keep showing.

        but I think it needs some color to really set it off....

          Yes it is, the 2 sides have a vertical slot in them. I glued a strip on the sides of the elevatorcar, so it goes up and down, not from side to side.

          I have not made a pattern, but can give you rough on the key elements if you are interested. Because it was build for twin brothers and the fact that they have an older brother I wanted to create something on every side of the garage to play. That way they don't have to fight over the same space. That's why the elevator, carwash, showroom, gasstation and ramps are positioned on different sides.

          The mother of the twin wanted it in clear lacquer, so it was by customers request. Paint would have been easier because is gives the opportunity to use screws and fill the holes, because the paint will cover it.

            Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
            by cwmagee
            A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

            The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
