Well, here it is… my first attempt at using a scroll saw. It was exciting, I have to say.
I did the outside edge; no problem. Then I had to figure out how to cut the inside pieces out. It looked so simple when Rick showed me yesterday. It had me sweating and I was afraid to turn the machine back on – in case parts started flying every which way. But they didn’t.
Then, with heart pounding and bench slighly vibrating from the scroll saw, a “balancing” mallet fell from its shelf and scared the living daylights out of me!!!
How I managed to finish the project, I will never know.
I wanted to burn my daughter’s name into the wood (she’s a music teacher). Not bad, I thought, until it was all done and I realized that I should have had her name going in the opposite direction.
Oh well, if you don’t have things to laugh at, where’s the story behind the project??? !!

there were moments when I was wondering if I was having fun or not, but the journey is just beginning!! I can’t wait to try this again.

Didn’t think I’d ever see that pattern again,WOW! I made the mistake of making one for a dirty Santa gift that I ended up making more that I wanted of them. I ended up throwing the pattern I made away and told everyone else that I lost the pattern and couldn’t find another copy. If you look at my projects you will see the last one that I hope I will ever make again. I hate repetition projects, I enjoy doing one of something and doing something else. With the exception of set type pieces.
