Default Greetings from north Idaho

I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I'm a retired forester and have had a hobby woodworking shop for many years, but have never owned or used a scroll saw.

A few months ago I attended a woodworking show where some of the people were displaying and selling what I now know is "intarsia". I became fascinated with this artform. In the course of researching all of this, I visited lots of web sites, forums and message boards and bought a few books. I will buy my first scroll saw in March and see if I can learn to do intarsia and other forms of scroll saw art.

So, I'm really premature in joining a forum, but I have been visiting this site for several weeks and you all have contributed a lot to my decision to try this scroll saw art and I wanted to let you know I appreciate it. I look forward to more visits to this group as a member.

Welcome to the board. This board is a great place to grow and learn about scrolling. We have visitors like you who are brand new to those with decades of experince. You said your joining might be premature but I totally disagree. There are treads on different styles, blades, wood, saws and other topics. With this knowledge you will be better informed when you go to purchase your own equipment and supplies. If you have any questions just ask.

Once again welcome......

Steve, This old forester's first name is Bob. I confess to real ignorance in understanding and dealing with these forums. I don't know the terminology and how to navigate in them. Hope you'll bear with me. Bob

Greetings, Bob. We're not all experts here so don't be bashful about asking questions or sharing your own knowledge.

Hey Bob, welcome to the forum. Don't worry about being premature. Think of it this way, once you get your saw you will be a step ahead with all the good stuff you've learned here.

Besides that, being a forester and woodworker yourself, you may be able to provide some valuable info as well. It's always good to have folks with expertise in different backgrounds. That way we all benefit!
