SS SIG July 19th, 2010

The second special interest group (SIG) focusing on Scroll Sawing was held at Roger Bares' Shop on a Monday night July 19th at 7 pm.

Roger’s Report: “We had a scrollers meeting on the 19th of July. We had 4 members and 2 visitors present. We covered the basics of preparing wood for scrolling. Taping and gluing the patterns on. I gave each one of them a board and pattern for the rocking chair and some 2/0 blades so they could take it home and practice working with small blades. There was a lot of discussion on many subjects that have to do with scrolling and fretwork. I gave a short demonstration on some of my techniques with small blades and then let those that wanted to try it themselves. Our next meeting will be in my shop on the 16th of August and our main subject will be resawing wood on the bandsaw. I will set up my saw and give a demonstration on resawing. I am still open to doing 1 on 1 if anybody is interested. Just let me know and we will set up a date and time. The meetings have been going very good.”

Roger volunteered to do "One-on-One" sessions with anyone interested. Just call Roger at 1-605 484-3498 to set up an appointment. NOTE: The next SS SIG meeting will be held at Roger Bares’ Shop on Aug 16th at 7 pm and will cover the Resawing on the Bandsaw, as related to preparing the wood used for scroll sawing.
