Attempting Scrolling - 3 replies

Lately I have been interested in learning scrolling and Intarsia. I have done a few minor things with my scroll saw in the past, but nothing at all complex. So here is my first attempt of a pattern I downloaded. It was fun, but I think I will enjoy it a lot more when I learn to relax as I’m cutting. Still a little tense.

Usually the comments on the projects that catch my eye are a help. If I have a question I usually ask in a comment and most often I get a response from the builder and others that is helpf...

It will be a cabinet on casters, because I have a small shop and need to move my saw often. The dust port comes out that side. I am a DHD (Dust Hose Dragger) so I have to disconnect every time I want dust collecti...

I’m pretty new here and still trying to figure how to navigate the forum. My first question is, how do you get to the latest posts in some of these threads? Some have hundreds of posts in them and I haven’t figured out how to get to the most recent post in a long thread other than going through all the posts which only goes 15 post...
