I think that Christmas came early for us scroll sawyers! Apparently there was enough interest in scroll sawing here on the Lumberjocks.com website that the administration thought that it warranted having a new board in the Forum dedicated to scroll sawing!
I know I am not the only one that is really excited about this, as many of my scroll sawing friends have already posted and began to enjoy the convenience of having our own little corner here on Lumberjocks.
While having our own board may not seem like a big deal, I think it is a great thing. Not only will it be a great place to post specific questions and announcements that pertain to scrolling, but it will also be a good place for people that are curious or just learning to meet and discuss specific problems and questions. With a forum the size of Lumberjocks, it will make it quick and easy to find the information they need.
As for myself, I am happy because it will better keep me in touch with all the scrollers here and perhaps make some new friends of scrollers that are on this site. I really like to see what other scrollers are up to, but besides being here in the mornings when I write the blog, I don’t have a lot of time to ‘visit’ through the boards and go through everything. If I don’t receive notification that one of my buddies posted a topic, I usually don’t hear about it. This way I can stop by the Forum every morning and see what I may have missed. YAY!
I also hope that it encourages other Lumberjocks that may not have tried scroll sawing to give it a go. Many of you have scroll saws buried in the corner of your shop, waiting to be used. I think that there are many uses for the scroll sawing in making other larger projects too. Lots of times I see people building projects and they are using band saws to cut certain details. While this is great in many instances, there are many times when the scroll saw will do a much more accurate and precise job. Hopefully you will give it a try and see how much FUN you can have with scroll sawing.
I want to thank the Lumberjock administrators so much for allowing us this little corner of our own on your wonderful site. For those of you who are reading my blog from other places, be sure to check out the Scrollsawing Forum on the Lumberjocks site.
Who knows? You may find the most “unexpected” scroll sawyers are among us! ;)
Boy! Are we going to have FUN! :D
Have a great day!
