Default I have definitely found a new favorite tool !!

Turns out I am sort of good on the scroll saw. AND I love using it LOL !
Been busy cutting the past couple days after work.

Did a crappy job painting one of the pigs.... Have to detail sand the rest and finish them....

be careful Duane the scrollsaw can be quite addicting you'll start off by making shapes
the next thing you know you'll be analyzing ever picture you see to figure out
if you can turn it into a pattern....I know I'm a recovering scrollaholic!!!

To late Curt. I am already doing that now LOL !!!

Thanks Jim, thanks Deb

Jerry,
I got it about 3 weeks ago and used it for the 1st time that weekend to cut out a guitar for my little sister. Then just before Christmas to make snowman, candy cane, and Christmas tree ornaments. Two days ago I began cutting out animal silhouettes.
So I guess I have had it about 3 weeks so far and I have used it 4 times / sessions.

I need to find a good tight radius pin / pin blade though I know that !

Duane... if you contact your local WW club, you may find there's a scrollers sub-group or get a reference to one. Here in Anchorage the main WW club has sub-groups for scrolling and carving. There's a local turners group too. I can't speak to the carvers and turners groups, but I know the scrollers group is very active, with about 30 members attending each meeting. Someone usually brings in a SS and gives a demo... anarstasia, cutting backgrounds from coins, working with formica, 3-D work, puzzles, etc., there seems to be quite a following!

They were also smart and planned their meetings to be the hour before the general WW group, at the same location. It's a great recruiting tool!

Hey Duane,

You are doing GREAT! I have really come to appreciate what can be done with all the saws in my shop lately, especially the DW 788.

Nice work and we look forward to more pictures as you progress.
