Thumbs up Hello

Hi everybody. I started scrolling a few months ago. I have an old (1950's ?) Dunlap cast iron scroll saw that I bought on Craig's List for $25, and I'm enjoying it immensely. I made a bunch of Christmas ornaments with it this year. I'm also using it to cut out carving blanks for my other hobby (whittling). It uses pin-end blades, so I can't do the really small interior cuts that I see in the more advanced patterns, but I'm having fun with simpler stuff.

I'm looking forward to improving my techniques and learning more about the hobby from all of you.

Lord Bless!

Scrollin' with an Ex-21


I WAITED patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:1-3

Default Rercent projects

The picture has a scroll saw clock (minus the clock) based on one of Pete DeFrancisco's patterns, a half finished carving of a fat cat, and a 3/4 finished toy train engine.

Every time I use my scroll saw, I am more impressed at what it can do.

For using an older pin end blade saw you are doing a very nice job. Thanks for sharing and welcome to our online family.
