Location: Indianapolis, IN

Scrolling and woodworking are my passion.
I started woodworking as a necessity when I bought my first home. There were so many things that needed to be done to the well-worn house. I have evolved from the simple hammer, handsaw, small B&D 5 1/2" circular saw and Craftsman jigsaw. Now that jigsaw was fun--I could cut curves with it. I know that's where my interest in scrolling comes from. So, now I have the 1 1/2 hp Jet tablesaw, desktop planer, routers and routertable, a 1 hp dust collector with a chip separator--all in the garage. Well, only half of the garage because the rest is for hardwood lumber there's that rented storage garage that I share with my brother that is filled with different hardwood lumber. "Hi, my name is Verna, and I am an official member of the Wood Hoarders of Central Indiana"!!!!
But, my main workshop is a 12x18 room. I have two of my four Scrollsaws in it, along with my over 30 year old 12" Craftsman Bandsaw that I just can't get rid of--it was my first stationary tool that I purchased back in the early 80's. There's a 1.5 hp dust collector, a spindle sander, a benchtop drill press, a Performax 10/20 thickness sander, an assortment of handheld sanders, drills, circular saws, jigsaws, handsaws.....I haven't taken an inventory lately!! As soon as I get more done on my Verna-do list, I'll be moving the Craftsman bandsaw out of the workshop and moving the new Delta 14" in there. Of course, I have the other two scrollsaws, but I don't think they'll fit in the workshop.

I did finally retire from the telephone company on 1/31/11 after 39 years, 2.5 months. Now, hopefully I can find more time for my woodworking....

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Like your photo, Verna. Supervising a Habitat building must be a big job! Welcome to LJs. Looking forward to your input here.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, Verna. You will like it here because Lumberjocks is a great place for woodworkers of all kinds.

To love dogs who are one of the most noble animals is a noble trait. :)

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
