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)

In my woodworking, either scroll saw or just regular, I strive to be as accurate as possible, perhaps obsessive. One of the things that is driving me nuts lately is the inconsistence of wood thickness. I purchase wood from either the big box hardw...
