By day I am what one could call a computer jock. Really large computers. I am entrusted as an architect to plan, purchase and configure these beasts until they purr like kittens. Lots of stress with lots of job satisfaction which I wouldn't trade for anything.

The only thing I find that keeps me at least a tad bit sane is my love of woodworking. I have delved into a fair amount of the many facets of the craft with the exception of turning - hasn't quite peaked my interest yet.

Lately I have fallen in love with my scroll saw and have found a hidden talent in portrait cutting. The hours spent doing this are some of the most relaxing ones I have spent in a while.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

I too think that scrollsawing it relaxing and enjoy it very much. Most people look at my pictures and say how can you possible relax doing something so intricate. Don’t have an answer, for me the time jusst flies when i’m scrolling. Hope you continue to enjoy it.
