My name is Keith. I am very new to scroll sawing. I received a scroll saw for Father’s Day, so that makes me about 2.5 months old in scroller years. :) I started off in my scrolling hobby by cutting some basic puzzles from this book. A few of the ABC snake puzzles later and I was itching for something a little more challenging. I stumbled upon Toy Maker Press and was immediately drawn to their Noah’s Ark sets. I’ve wanted to build one for my little nieces for quite ...
:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video
I have another recent post ‘lamenting’ underutilized space, so I’ve been in the shop to rededicate a large storage cabinet to fasteners. It’s an old harware store case and needed a piece of face trim to dress it up a bit. Nothing fancy, just something missing, you know?

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
