As some of you will know, my main woodworking “thing” is Turning, but I recently decided to treat myself to a Proxxon DSH Scroll Saw as a reward for packing up smoking. I’m still a “NEWBIE” at this, but thought I’d make a Welcome sign for some friends who are moving house on Monday. I think it came out OK, seeing I’ve only been at it for less than a Month. :-)

Keith,
That is beautiful, congratulations on a great job.
Your friends will surely love it.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Hi Jerome, This was cut using a Pegas #5 reverse blade. The wood is Redwood, about 1/2 inch thick.

Thanks for your kind comment.

Thanks for all your kind comments folks, it’s real encouraging for a “newbie” to scrolling.
