Hello from U.K.
Just saying hello from Somerset England-- started scrolling in 1947 very bad winter ( living in Scotland) and was snowed in for months so needed something to do
Eyesight failing a bit so now mainly make stand up puzzles, toys and segmentation. Stopped making Intarsia due to concerns about sustainability --but sometimes get some recycled wood from a charity so not completely stopped
Still love making sawdust

Welcome aboard John. Look forward to lots of pics of your projects.
There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

Hi John and welcome aboard. 1947, did we have electricity back then? Lol Just kidding. My guess is you are the oldest and maybe most experienced scroller here. We would love to see your work and hear some stories.
