lurking in the shadows
I've been a member here for several weeks browsing and learning a lot about this hobby. First and foremost let me say thank you, without many of your posts I would have been hurting a lot more than I have been. I've been dabbling around with several different projects and seeing what I like the most and so far its been a toss up. Especially with my wife asking me to make her stuff. Once again thank you and I hope to be able to contribute as much as I can to the community.

Welcome into the light!
What sorts of projects have you been making? Giving a good range is a great idea to let you get a feel for the ones you like the best. I know that I now make totally different projects than I expected when I got the saw (intarsia was the big draw for me, and I still haven't finished my first intarsia project! I hadn't even considered puzzles as interesting).
Save and date your initial projects. It's fun going back after a while to compare both how your skills have improved and how your tastes have changed in the sorts of things you want to do.

Welcome, This site is great for many reasons, one of which is getting to see the great ideas and projects that people do with the scroll saw. No matter how good I think I may be getting there is someone hear that does it more creatively and better or with a new twist.
We look forward to seeing your work and like Rob said date and SAVE your early projects.
What saw are you using and what part of the world do you live in, maybe there is a club in your area.
