I was brought up in the deep south where above anything else, you were to respect your elders and put them on a pedestal. That has been instilled in me from my very first breath. As many of you know, I have cut many wooden crosses on my scroll saw...

My name is Mike. I have gradually gotten into woodworking. I started out at the age of 17 by framing houses. After that it was a little while before I did any other type of woodworking. When I did, it started with scroll saw work and I am now incorporating that into inlay projects. I enjoy all types of wood working, but do not have that much experience. I make a lot of saw dust, but some turn out and others don't. But, it is what it is..... Keeps me out of trouble! Because I work in a 4 X 15 section of my garage, most of my tools are on wheels. I am getting pretty good a setting up and tearing down. I really like inlay and marquetry although I haven’t attempted any marquetry up to this point. I am just now to the point that I buy wood (as opposed to finding scraps in dumpsters). Most of it is the Home Decrap specials, but every once in a while I go to the “real” wood store. That doesn’t happen too often. The prices are high as a cat’s back!

There have been many projects that have used dowels for the joinery. When I have used that technique, I often had an issue with lining up the holes correctly. Time after time, I would “attempt” to use this technique and end up with som...
I do woodworking in my garage. That is my shop. After SEVERAL years of trying, I have not been able to get my wife to park out front. She wants her car covered. But, that is the female mind at work and it is WAY beyond a mere mortal like me to und...
Everyone that knows me knows I am a scroller at heart. In 2008 my wife bought me a Craftsman Scroll Saw for Christmas and I haven’t stopped since then. My Craftsman Scroll saw has provided me a learning experience from which I have learned t...
Please forgive me while I jump up on my soap box and rant for a bit! As many of you know, I am a scroller. Some have said I live at my scroll saw. So you can imagine when my saw broke, I was really bummed. The blade clamp has a spring and the p...
