I'm a new scroller, using an old 16" Tradesman saw that I bought for $10 on Craigslist. I live in southern Maine. My hobbies include upgrading my house, my four kids and seven grandkids, woodworking, bass fishing, beer brewing and bicycle riding. I mostly retired a year ago.

So far I've made two things on my scroll saw, this is the most recent and was an anniversary gift for my wife this week. I enjoyed making it, though it did make me really want a new saw! I still need to file and sand a bit and then put a finish on it. d687a6c7-ab59-4bc1-a9df-eba9e67e97fd_zps It's not attached to the base yet so that I can more easily finish it.

I'm looking forward to a lot more scrolling.

Impressive work! And welcome aboard. I agree with Marg above. The first thing I cut my wife hung on the fridge (because it looked like something I did in the first grade!)

Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

Welcome from East TN.  What a beautiful project you have created to give your wife for your anniversary.  I am sure she will love it and you for the time and effort as well as love that you put into it.  Thanks for sharing.

You've climbed the scroll saw ladder two rungs at a time.Your not far from the top now.Keep your work coming friend!


If it's not broke don't fix it or you'll render it useless!

Welcome from south Texas, its the artist behind the saw that makes a project, but a good saw sure helps.
