Red face Hi everyone

From a sunny south east of England. I am just finding my way round this forum. I have a cabin where I have set up my scroll saw and power carving tools. Being a female it is unusual in England to be interested in scroll sawing and woodwork, but I hope I will find plenty of like minded friends here.

Hi Linda

Your username drew my attention - I was once stationed at RAF Wittering when I was in the RAF.

Welcome to the wonderful world of scrolling .

Hello Pete thanks very much, I have made a gourd guitar with my scroll saw. I scrolled the sound board and the neck for the frets. I am at the moment painting it with a norwegian folk art pattern on the front. but will post a pic when I have finished it.

Tony I have many books on intarsia, but find it hard to get any good wood to do this with unless I travel to the south west to somerset. so mostly I am in to scrolling baltic birch ply, and painting where do I post my work. Linda

Hi Gill Thanks for the welcome, hubby says to say hi too, he was stationed at RAF west Rainham. Is RAF wittering near Peterborough and were you a WAF. What do you make with your scroll saw. This forum is so interesting I should of joined ages ago I have had no one to talk to about scrolling, woodwork and gourds but now perhaps I have. Linda

Where on earth do you source this?!?! Reasonably priced BBP is about as common as hen's teeth in the UK.

Yes, RAF Wittering is close to Peterborough. In fact, it is a very curious place in many ways, originally being two separate stations until a station commander in World War 2 decided to extend the runway and merge both bases into one. One day Fighter Command had two diddy stations, next morning it had one big station! The station commander was promptly relieved of his duties, I believe, but RAF Wittering was his enduring legacy.

It actually falls within three different county boundaries too, which was a bit of a headache at times because I was responsible for building maintenance. I have very fond memories of the place and the Harrier force.
