Default A New Hobby, Scrolling

My wife said I need a hobby, other then work. Needless to say she is right. I am new at scrolling and I really enjoy working with wood and trying something new.

Welcome aboard. You will soon see that scrolling is not a hobby. It is an addiction with no known cure. You will fill your hard drive with patterns you will never find the time to cut but will be obsessed with having every one you come in contact with. Soon your garage or shop will become filled to the gunnels with tiny scraps of wood you can't throw away because you never know when You may need that piece of wood for a project.

When you begin naming the kids and dogs Poplar, aspen, and ash you know it has gone far enough...LOL

Now once again welcome aboard! <hehehe>

Welcome aboard. I'm sure you'll find scrolling a very rewarding and yes addictive hobby. Once you get stated your wife will come up with all kinds of things she'll want made, so maybe she should start scrolling as well.
Have fun and welcome to the forum
