Hope you all have patient with me.

I was having great difficulty posting pictures, too.

I use a Mac and Mozilla Firefox. Maybe that’s part of the problem.

But … since you are from Norway … I’m guessing that part of the problem is this:

- You left your shop door open
- It’s winter
- Your shop is now full of snow

If I am right … Your picture DOES show us that … and … it’s beautiful ;-)

Here I’ll try to show it off.

My 16 inch band saw is a wonderful piece of equipment.

Have made me a few jigs and it works wonderful with different size of blades.

I bought the drill press cheap from a friend of mine. It doesmost of what I need of bigger stuff.

The square table did improve my use of this.

The best part of what I did last week!

After having great problems with my Excalibur-21 I desided to go for the Hegner SE. This have showed me to be the best desition considder a scoll saw. I will never again buy a Taiwan or Korean saw. It is a lot better to pay some more bucks then have a saw that breaks several times and is impossible the saw straight. After the buy I made me a stand for it last week.
Then I had in mind I needed a place for my blades and have them marked where they are. Here it is and easy to find.

How you like it?

I have been looking for a lot of fine stuff made from other scollers. I have always fancy the more complicated things people have made. After getting the pattern from finescollsaw I saw at once this must be a nice one. I used 2-3 weeks on it (not every day). I painted the few things and esambled it in just half an hour! Just gorgeous.

The worse job was to glue up the 4mm from birch. With the big router I made the finger cuts and glued the pieces together and they fit tight and nicly together.
The finish on this is almost nothing! I have never made anything from a pattern that was so well done

Hi Dave.
No, the pattern is made of Pedro in Spain. He sell a variety of patterns that is very well done and it is worth every penny. www.finescrollsaw.com

We had snow for a week here and today +8 and the snow is almost gone. Last days has been cold – down to -10 Celsius.
