Hi everyone. I just stated scrolling about 6 months ago. My wife picked up an old used up saw - to be nice - at a garage sale for me. I have tinkered with and love working with wood but never thought about scroll saws until she picked that up. I didn't do much with it for a couple of months, but gave it a shot one day and cut out the tree puzzle in the summer 2009 issue. After finding out I couldn't get much in size variations for blades - it took only pin end blades, I bought a new saw. I have upgraded twice since then, thanks to a defect in the last saw and I am now using a 20" DeWalt DW788, which has been a pretty good saw. I can see an upgrade from that coming in the not to distant future...

I really enjoy the magazine and just ordered the set of 18 prior issues! This is the first magazine I have ever read cover to cover in my 43 years. I even go through them again and again.

I love intarsia work. I really want to learn how to use Photoshop or a similar software to make my own patterns from pictures. I just finished the Mallard Drake by Kathy Wise and I think it came out rather nicely myself, I posted a picture of it yesterday.

Anyway - I am looking forward to new patterns, new ideas and a lot of saw dust.

Doug, Welcome aboard for sure. When you find time post some pics of your puzzle and any other work you make we live for pics around here.

Hi Doug,
Im a new guy to the forum also, but not to Fox Chapel. Ive had several of my clocks n stuff published in their magazines. I see you may upgrade saws again. Not very often do you hear of DeWalt owners upgrading. They are usually very pleased and tend to stay with their 788. What are you thinking of buying next?

HELP!! Im stuck in Reno and I can see Sparks!
