Made a trip to the cabinet shop that allows me to pick through their scrap bin. Came back with mostly hardwood, Oak and Maple. The stack on the left is Baltic Birch plywood. I gotta get busy.

I have been woodworking for about 15 years. Just learning the craft as I go along and make many goofs. About a year ago I got interested in the scrollsaw and it has become my tool of choice. I just go out to the shop and turn it on and we are ready to go. Very little set up and prep work but lots of clean up of dust and wood chips. The more I use it the beeter (I think) I get. I mostly love the Victorian patterns. Little tiny cuts and curly cues and once you are finished - WOW. Like most of us scrollers I use a magifining light and lens and sometimes when I pull the finished piece out I think - WOW that is small.
So like any good first grader I continue to follow the lines (most of the time).
If you wish to follow my work elsewhere; on FACEBOOK look for PA's Workshop OR on ETSY https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/PAsWorkshop/preview (soon)

So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I h...
So I had a visit with my breathing Doctor today. The simple fact is I have asthma and that can’t be fixed. Controlled is another matter. First you must know what are the “triggers: that set you off”. At this time I am not sure bu...
