Default what to do during a blizzard

i bought a used hegner scroll saw a couple of weeks ago and because of the weekend blizzard i got some time to cut out a few items in between shoveling snow(we recieved 14" and 2 days of 40 mph winds.

pictures below are a walnut cross cut from 3/4" thick stock. i got this pattern of the internet.

the other two pictures are cut from 1/4" plywood that i had in the shop.
patterns for these came from Creative Woodworks and Crafts.

i hope the pictures come up alright.

i can say that im probably hooked on scroll sawing.

happy new year all

thanks all for the coments.

bj: i bought a used hegner for a really good deal of craigslist. it is a really great saw but is only a single speed. i would really like a variable speed one so i guess i can add it to my want list.

i really like this scrollsawing. it is really relaxing(except when the blade breaks and you about jump off the chair). if im not in the mood to work on my bigger projects i usuall will jump on the scrollsaw for a while and cut till im tired and finish it up on another day.

i have learned that the blades you use really make a difference in the end results of your project. i like the flying dutchman blades that mike at mikesworkshop.com sells.

well time to get back to work

happy new year all
