Thank you kindly Monte! I will still be in my usual hangouts at LJ’s. I just like a specific forum for the scrollers. Just earlier today, I noticed some nice scrolled projects from some scrollers that I have not seen here before. They have probably been here a while, but with this many people I haven’t seen them before. As for myself, I don’t get time to cruise around here much. I tend to write my blog and my day takes over. It will just help me see scroller related questions and such and get to know the others a little better. I love LJ’s and think it is a great place for all woodworkers. I am happy you follow my day to day ramblings! :) Take care!

I have a daily blog that I write almost every morning. Besides my project page, that is where I frequent the site the most. :)

Wail….Dayeem! I am going to wake up my 21yr old Delta SC and get to work! I know it works on Soft Maple and NOT on Wh. Ash, so some learning curve still exists. I look forward to more post in this topic.

BTW, my scroll saw is the oldest WW stuff that I have. I used it in modelling for several years…

I just got a scrollsaw recently so I’m looking forward to LJs having a more active scrolling community. I’m still getting the hang of the durn thing but excited about the new abilities it gives to my shop!

All you new people, feel free to look in on my class that I hosted last year. The link is here:

Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing

I still am going to add some things into it every now and then and you can always ask me questions that I can answer on my blog. There are so many talented scrollers here and the scroll saw can be a great addition to your arsenal of tools – even for smaller tasks or parts of doing projects. I think the more you play around with it, the more you will like it and see how useful it can be. Once you get the hang of the basics, it is really a fun part of woodworking. I am just happy that the administrators gave us scrollers a place where we can exchange information directly. :)

Ah-Oh Shelia, looks like you started something, now dust is going to be flying around in almost everyone’s shop as the blow the dust off of their scrollsaw’s :)

I’d really like to get mine going but just can’t seem to shake off of my bandsaw to do it, orders keep flying in and I’m doing all I can to keep up with them but one day…..

Congrats!

Yes – glad to have this spot for scrollers. I don’t scroll a whole bunch, but I do like to incorporate some into my work. It can make run of the mill projects just jump out.

I think it will be nice to see how other woodworkers utilize scrolling in other woodworking patterns. Bernie – I hope you post some project that you do here in this forum too so all of us scrollers can have some idea of how you use it in your other woodworking. :) I really look forward to seeing stuff like that here!
