This is just great and thanks to all who helped start this forum. This will be outstanding for all of us.
I love to do detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. However that don’t, or is not, paying the bills. Sales of those products at the price I charge, which is getting lower and lower, Just does not seem to be worth the time. Therefore for the first part of the year I am turning to toys. Not the I really like doing them or that they are any more worth the time and effort. All the painting that needs to be done are a pain in the backside. I am or have been in three different...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #909: A New Scrollsaw Board on Lumberjocks Website Forum!
I think that Christmas came early for us scroll sawyers! Apparently there was enough interest in scroll sawing here on the Lumberjocks.com website that the administration thought that it warranted having a new board in the Forum dedicated to scroll sawing! I know I am not the only one that is really excited about this, as many of my scroll sawing friends have already posted and began to enjoy the convenience of having our own little corner here on Lumberjocks. While having our own boar...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #902: Review on Using Full Sheet Labels for Applying Scroll Saw Patterns
In my recent posts, I have been discussing different ways to apply patterns to wood for scroll sawing. Since last year, I have noticed that the quality of the spray adhesive that I was accustomed to using had been on the decline. The brand I have used for the past several years has been Elmer’s, and while I first thought it just may have been an isolated incident (perhaps a bad batch) I have since purchased it from several different locations with the same results, and heard similar st...
I am running a bit late today, as I got lost in answering emails and doing some other things. I did have some things that I wanted to share here though that may be of interest. I received my full sheet labels the other day from a Canadian supplier on Amazon . They arrived quickly and I am eager to use them on my next project today or tomorrow. The cost for 100 full sheets of labels was a total of about $30 with the shipping. While that may seem a little expensive, you have to remember th...
Like most that are getting into building again after some time away (close to 20years away lol). I have started off small with what I think I can do. Well it is getting close to xmas and since like most folks out there money is tight. I have made gifts for my family (I have already posted the finish gifts in my gallery). Right now I am making a gift for my mom and one to take to work for the gift exchange. My mom likes dolphins and I recently watched Steve Ramsey show me how to cut finger ...
A month ago, my wife asked me to paint a picture of her parent’s house. I’ve dabbled in acrylics and oils in the past, but I am on a scroll saw kick right now, so I suggested to her that I cut a portrait of her parent’s house instead. She wasn’t so sure since I’ve only been scrolling for about 4.5 months. Because she loves me ;) she trusted in me. I ordered Coyote Stencil maker and made this pattern from a photo she took of her parent’s house. I pr...
Yesterday was a good day. I did accomplish many of the things that I set out to do. One of the most important things was that I finished editing the video on how to drill the depressions for the embellished ornaments and also demonstrates a couple of cutting techniques for those ornaments. The link to the video is here: This time I shot it in several short segments. I tried to just show the technique that I described and finished the processes off camera. I felt that this way I was a...
Another Monday is upon us. Why is it the Mondays come so quickly? It is hard to believe that we are nearly half way through with November already and approaching the end of the year. Again. Looking back on the past year, it all seems to be a blur. I know we had a car trip to Cape Breton in there somewhere. Several days in the summer were spent cutting out witches’ hats and boots and Christmas stockings and packages. The day on the beach when I drew the snowmen. It all went by so quick...
