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've been scrolling since 2008.  So I guess that would make 5 years for me.  :)

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
