Default uk based member, new scroller..

Hi all, new member here.

Been interested in woodwork/etc but limited space and time to do it, but found a scroll saw local that was cheap and ideal for a play thing. If I hated it, I could resell with minimal loss.

However I am loving it!! Practised with 3mm ply for a week or so to get used to cutting and how to do sharp corners and whatnot.

Then as valentines day is near I attempted a full item for the better half, 1st proper attempt at scrolling! - Imgur ,which went well, still rough at the edges but getting more confident as it is only 2 weeks since I had a scroll saw.

Also a cheap pillar dril helped and a router table mounted which gives edges a nice finish to some items, so probably less than £140 for all the kit, can't get a cheaper hobby really!!!

Welcome abroad errr aboard too.




Here is a tip...How to post a picture to the forum:

Here is the preferred way to post photos. This method will apply a thumbnail so that messages load faster, keeping those who are still on dial up in mind. yes we still have lots of members who are using dial up for an internet connection.

1st open another browser window (or print out these instructions) and open this thread in it so you can read and follow this guideline..

If it is a new thread scroll down below the message box to additional options and look for manage attachments,Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.

If you are uploading a picture to an existing thread (conversation)
Click on the Go Advanced button under the reply box, Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.
Good luck

To re-size your pics if needed there is an awesome freebie out there called irfanview. Easy and free. I've used it for years. irfanview
Here is there tutorial it really is easy...

I've had several folks tell me they copy and paste this tip into word or notepad so they can print it out and keep it by their computer for later reference.
