This is probably a bit of a long shot, but it there anyone on the forum who does scrollsawing (electric fretsaw)?

If so, I'd be interested in swapping patterns, and finding sources for good hardwood.

Some examples of my work:

I'm not going to be any help to you, but I think your work looks amazing.

Do you sell locally?

Thanks, Bella, it's nice to be appreciated.

My wife also does a heck of a lot of crochet. For a long time we've been intending to find somewhere we could have a stall, but never got around to it.

Unfortunately, both scrollsawing and crochet are very time intensive, so we could never sell at a profit if we take time into consideration. Stuff we make often gets given to people who we appreciate - doctors, nurses, bar owners etc.

We both do it purely as a hobby, but I must admit all our walls and flat surfaces are getting over-crowded, so we need to clear the decks a bit in order to make room for new stuff.

The problem is where to go. The only place I know of is the monthly open days at the Cuevas at Rojales, but they don't normally get many visitors.

Here's some more for you:

Hi Jim, I was looking on the tinter web device, to see what scroll sawing actually was, the next day when I went on the web, adverts for scroll saw patterns started to pop up. One you might be interested in, Free Scroll Saw Patterns by Arpop. Had a quick peek, and there seems to be quite a selection that you can download, then print off. Hope you find it useful.

Hi Mal

Thanks very much for that. I've not come across Arpop before, and I've downloaded some of his stuff to add to my patterns collection.

Picture here is of my latest experiment. Click on the picture to see all of it.

Could be better, but my first attempt at earrings. Very fiddly to do and involved a lot of swearing.

Made of beech and walnut.
