There are lots of good sites out there to get patterns both free and paid. Check them out and just keep on practicing. Steve Good has a good site.

Go to the scroll saw forum and follow it . Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) has a lot of good stuff. Follow her blog.

Troy, well done

There are some great scrollers on LJ’s and they are so

Great start – YES, as pointed out, Steve Good’s site is an excellant FREE place to get patterns. That is where I started. Also Pick up one or two copies of the Scrollsaw Mag’s, generally between 20 to 30 patterns in each one.

I look forward to seeing more.

Don’t ever throw this away…...go so far as framing if you want. Something you can always reflect back on years down the road when you improve your skills.

I have always been intimidated by a lot of the patterns available and first started with very basic projects. I would also take advantage of the scrap pile.

Try drawing straight lines about 3-5 inches long…say about 10 of them. You will or should see a difference in the first line you cut and the last one. OBTW, if you want a straight have to feed the blade at a slight angle. Keep up the good work.
