I’m contemplating setting up “Live” weekly chats via Skype conference calls on my Scroll Saw blog at This is open to anyone that loves woodworking, not just Scrollers, but it will probably be a lil Scroll saw intensive! If you don’t know what Skype is, briefly, it is a Free online program that allows people to talk to each through their computers. You can also do group webcam and conference calls (Web Cam is not necessary, so don’t worry if you don’t have one) You can find out more about Skype at

I would like to get some feedback from all of you to see if this is something you would be willing to participate in. At this point I think just some general conversations and Q/A’s about general wood working is a good way to start. If I get enough participants, maybe it can evolve into tutorial type sessions such as pattern making in Inkscape and Gimp, or How To’s on whatever subject comes up.

In order to do a group conference call, I will need to pony up some cash to upgrade my Skype account to a Premium account, which I don’t mind doing. I just don’t want to do it if nobody is going to participate, so before I upgrade I need to hear from you so I am simply not wasting my money.

I have set up a new Skype account User Name “ScrollSawForum”, if you already have a Skype account just add me as a Contact, when I get the request, I will confirm you, if you don’t have a Skype account, just send me an email saying you will participate to and I’ll send you the proper info, or just leave a comment below.

Not only can this be a fun interactive way of talking about wood working, I’m sure we just might be making new friends as well. Would love to hear your thought and comments.

Let me know

I hope you’ve received more responses else where, this sound like a cool idea.
