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)

I saw a post on FaceBook about not receiving good returns from craft shows, and ETSY, in the current economy. The last show I attended, as a vendor, was last fall. In my opinion I did very well. I thought I would post an open question about in ...
I take both of the major Scroll saw magazines and have for many years. We recently noticed what we thought was an overpayment issue on our part so we contacted the magazine. We were informed the our subscription was not done DIRECTLY through them ...
After many months of thinking on the decision, looking at different ways to do this, having as much input as could be offered, considering all of life’s alternatives, I have decided to give up, quit, stop scroll sawing as a hobby, part time activi...
