I’ve been scrolling since 2008. This was was an experiment at a more complicated project. It was made from red oak and took me about 4 months to complete.It was donated to a raffle and ultimately generated $850.00 to help a coworker of mine who was losing his wife to terminal cancer…I’m new to this site but i;ll post more pics soon.

Marka, there are a number of scrollers here on LJ. Welcome! One that I’ve been following is Sheila Landry, aka “scrollgirl”. She maintains a site selling elegant and intricate scroll saw patterns along with her partner Kieth. I love doing this kind of work, too but haven’t done much recently.

Aloha Marka and welcome to the forum. From one Scroller to another…a job very well done. I’ve been scrolling about 30 years. I use Hegners, which saws do you use?
