Welcome to the fourm and to the hobby. Though you will soon see it will become a lot more than just a hobby. I said the same thing a few years ago. Being that you are familiar with woodworking in general, my suggestion would be to take a look at the tutor and information section here. Also, maybe look into getting a scroll saw book. Not one with patterns but one that will give you tips and tricks on using your saw. Also, I would pick an easy pattern to do as your first project, you'll find a bunch of those in the pattern vault here. A couple more things to consider, one, practice and practice. Secondly, don't get discouraged if you are having trouble cutting a pattern. If you have any questions regarding scrollsawing or help with a pattern feel free to ask as there are many here that are more than willing to help. Welcome aboard.

Great to have you in the family. Like Tony says, have a good look around, you will find some great hints and tips and get plenty of ideas. Check out the pattern section. If you need any advice at all don't be scared to ask. Someone will always jump in to help.
