I've always been amazed at what can be accomplished with a scroll saw , but it's way to tedious and time consuming for a guy like me . Great work though, I'm really liking the first Christmas together

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Actually, one of the things I love about the scroll saw projects is that most of them you can finish in a relatively short period of time. Building bigger projects there are often times spent waiting for glue to dry, etc. The smaller scrollsaw projects rarely take that long!

A lot of the frustration with scrollsaw projects come from people whose only experience has been with a low end saw or dull blades. Find someone with a 'nice' saw and give it a whirl, it is amazing how satisfying seeing finished results quickly.

3D ornaments can be quite a challenge. That one looks great. In fact, they all look great. I think you are well above beginner level now. It feels good, doesn't it?

Couldn't agree more Doug. I think I would have given up scroll saw work if I only had access to my first blades which were box store Ryobi blades. I am forever spoiled now using Flying Dutchmen blades.

Thanks Dave. Guess I'll move up in status with scroll saw work and move down in status as a message board poster.
