Hi, I'm Lisa and I started my woodworking with a scrollsaw. My husband gave me a corner of his garage along with work bench to do my work. I have graduated to making an adirondack chair, gun rack, trellis's, picture frames, but they are far from perfect. I want to learn more about my routers. I have a craftsman router that is mounted on a table and I have a bosch palm router. They're both great, but I know I don't get all that I can out of them. I would also like to know more about pantograph routing as I would like to make some signs, etc. Thanks for any help.

Welcome aboard Lisa and there is another way to get to 10 post. Just look at my gallery and expond with 10 words or more what wonderful work I do to each picture. LOL it is way easier to welcome every body.

Hi Lisa:

Gee your husband is awfully nice to "give" you a corner of "his" garage. I'll quit with the sarcasm while I'm ahead.

The scrollsaw requires tremendous concentration, especially with the more intricate designs. You've moved from miniature to major projects and you come with all the skills needed to be safe and enjoy yourself.

Keep us posted with your progress.

HI Lisa

The scroll saw is a great tool for making signs... you can make a sandwich so to say, split the sandwich after the scroll job and push the letters back in place ,,they can be proud and counter sunk in that way you don't need to hog out the background of the sign..and it's real easy to paint the letters, then put them back in place..


something like below ..the scroll saw is a fun tool
