How Long Have You Been Scrolling?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about how long folks have been scrolling.  I thought it would be fun to see who our most senior (or is that experienced?) scroller here.

 

So, h'bout it?  How long have you been scrolling?  I'm not talking about how long you've had a scroll saw sitting in the corner gathering dust.  But rather actual scrolling where you're using your scroll saw as a primary tool for making stuff.

I bought my first scrolling jig saw at a garage sale in 1974 and started making Christmas ornaments of my own design every year that were dated and I sent them instead of cards.  Didn't have the internet and sure couldn't find any patterns back then.  Guess that makes 39 yrs or the same as my age for me. LOL :o

  I started back in school, bought a little coping saw then a jig saw . Making lawn ornaments have just kept improving and learn new methods .Then upgradeing 

 So a total of 43 years , There was like 7 years I was serving my country I did not do any woodworking well maybe a tiny bit here and there.

   The thing with scrolling when you think you have try or seen ever way to use a scroll saw someone comes up with a new ideal .

I started scrolling in 1994 cutting shapes for my wife to paint and then more of the fret work after I buried her in blanks. I started with a 13 inch craftman then quickly moved to a 16" craftman and then in '96 or '97 upgraded to the DeWalt 788 (type one).
