Hi gang- been cruising around the boards for awhile now but for some reason could never get the registration code in my e-mail until today. Sorry but here's a kind of longwinded story of how I got here. I got a Craftsman Scrollsaw about 8 years ago but never really got the hang of using it and didn't know where to get started. It sat on my workbench until this fall. My son joined a fraternity at college, needed a Greek paddle to decorate with his Greek letters and ordered it online for his roommate and himself. The day before he needed it he was in a panic because they never got shipped to him. My wife and I went to craft stores, woodshops, etc. looking for ones to get for them. No luck. All we found was one for a keychain. We ended up getting the key chain, making a blow-up copy, getting a couple pine boards and that night I was able to make and sand down 3 paddles in a couple of hours (not exactly perfect but I hoped they'd be good enough). When we took them to my son and his roommate, they were ecstatic with them. Needless to say I felt pretty good about it and was hooked. I got online and ordered a beginner book for practicing cuts and a couple of DVD's to SEE how it should be done for regular cuts, inside cuts and Intarsia. I was pretty happy how the practicing was going and so far have been able to try different types of projects. I've enjoyed making a couple of single board intarsias-(I got a long ways to go before using different kinds of wood)- a reindeer Christmas ornament, a teddy bear heart scroll art for my wife for Valentine's day that is actually hanging on the wall and a Mustang Scroll art for my son for his birthday (what can I say-he wanted a Mustang so a dad has to give him what he wants). Anyway, I have found the hobby I wanted 8 years ago to be very relaxing that I can work on for 15 minutes or 3 hours, whatever I feel like and get instant gratification from each cut I make. BTW- my son actually sold the 3rd paddle I made to a spring pledge and got the money back I spent on the boards and saved the kid some money from buying it online. Thanks for hearing (reading) my story and I'm looking forward to learning a lot of tricks and tips from the forum

Welcome to the forum from TN. I see you are in SE PA, close to the upcoming Scroll Saw Picnic. Look for the thread in the upcoming events.

No- unfortunately I'm a little older than the Flowbee--and no hair on top to use it,
