A Few Pictures From the SAW EXPO 2008

Here are just a few pictures from SAW EXPO 2008. More to come later.










Scroll Saw Association of the World EXPO 2008 Ribbon Winners

The Scroll Saw Association of the World Expo 2008 was last weekend. The show contest was judged the second day and the ribbons were handed out. All the projects were outstanding and deserving of praise.

The judges have a job to do and they have to pick the winners. The judges spent a lot of time examining the work closely looking for flaws that the average person would never notice. That's what it takes to find a winner. After much anticipation they placed the ribbons and the winners were known.

I wanted to show video of as many ribbon winners as possible. I am sorry I missed some of the winners but the show ended very quickly and I just could not get to every display.




This intarsia project was awarded best of show. The picture does not do justice to how beautiful it actually was in person. I don't have the name of the artist right now but I will update the post when I get the name.

Scroll Saw Association of the World EXPO 2008

My wife I were able to attend the Scroll Saw Association of the World EXPO 2008 in Wilmington, Ohio this weekend. The Expo opened at 9am on Saturday. Attendance for the show was pretty good the first day. Sunday was a little slow but everyone that came saw a nice show.

The event was held at the Roberts Convention Center. The venue was first class from the spacious convention floor to the beautiful hotel. My wife and I spent Saturday night at the Holiday Inn attached to the Convention center building. The service was superb and the room was very nice. We definitely enjoyed our stay.

There were several seminars both days. Woodburning with Cheryl Dow, Compound Cutting with Diana Thompson, From the tree to the saw by Wes Demerest, Parquerty by David Adler, Intarsia techniques by Kathy Wise. These speakers wraped up the first days seminars. The ones I checked out seemed to be well attended. On Sunday Bob Duncan spoke about Article writing for magazines and Joannie West talked about Cut, Sand, Glue and Finish.

The only seminar I had time to attend was by Diana Thompson. Diana is a friendly and open person and she made the lecture entertaining. She discussed Basic compound cutting. I would estimate about 45 people attend Diana's seminar. After her presentation she took question and stayed around after to make sure everyone had their questions answered. I enjoyed the presentation and it looked as if the others in the room did also.

This first video is a sights and sounds introduction so the EXPO. The video is no where near a complete rundown of the show. I spent so much time talking and enjoying new friends that I neglected the video camera a bit.




The second video is a demonstration of the Sand-Flee by R.J.R. Studios. It is an interesting machine that drew quite a bit of attention at the show They were nice enough to demonstrate the capabilities for my readers. For more info visit www.rjrstudions.com



The last video for this post is an impromptu demonstration by Rick Hutcheson. Rick free hand cuts tiny compound cut reindeer without a pattern to the delight of the crowd. Rick is a master scroller and you can visit is web site here.




Thats all for this post. I will have more video and pictures in tomorrows post.

Flying Dutchman. The blades recommended by Steve Good

Why do I recommend the Flying Dutchman blades? I could say they are high quality, sharp and consistent. That would be a good reason. I could say the price per blade is great and that would be an excellent reason. Those are the reasons I buy them but I recommend them because I like doing business with Mike at Mike's Workshop. When I send a reader of the Scrollsaw Workshop to Mike he takes care of them. That makes me look good and keeps my readers coming back.
