I first was introduced to a woodshop during my Junior year in High School. The project I picked was a hope chest. I did not quite finish it, but still received and A. As years went on I didn't do to much again with woodworking. Years and years later I chose little projects. Recently I was given a scroll saw by a neighbor and started by tracing some handmade puzzles my son received when he was born (28 years ago). I have recently purchased an Excalibur 16. I have not done any portraits, but it has given me the ability to do tight turns when doing projects. Mostly children's toys and puzzles, along with some other new designs I have found. To my delight I have been able to be more precise on my scrolling and my confidence has increased. I hope you enjoy seeing some of my little projects, with use of a scroll saw and other woodworking tools, as much as I enjoy making them. :)
