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 storage....plus 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....
