New Community Forum is Live. Help me get it off the ground.


I have been busy this week updating the blog. I am excited to have added a couple new features. The other day I added the reader picture album. That seems to be going strong. They are getting lots of views. I will be updating this soon to add more features. Remember to email me your pictures and I'll add them to the gallery.

Tonight I have added a new community forum to the blog. I have had this feature requested many times so I thought I would give it a try. You will see the graphic link in the left hand column of the blog. Just look for the picture above.

This is a place for all the readers of the Scrollsaw Workshop to get together and discuss our favorite hobby. Forums are only as good as the participants make them. The more the better.

I want to ask a favor of each of you. Help me get this forum off the ground. Please visit the forum and register to participate. Registration is easy and free. Look in the upper right of the forum page and click register. Fill out the registration form and you are ready to go.

I have set up a few rooms to get us started. If you would like to see more rooms set up just let me know.

Take a minute to introduce yourself to the world and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

If you are a member of a scroll saw club, online forum or have friends that would like to participate please send them this way.

I know many of you may have never participated in an online forum before. I will be working on tutorials to show how to use many of the features. In the mean time just play around with it. You can't break anything so click on things and see what they do.

I hope you will enjoy this new community forum. A wealth of information can be shared and friends can be made. Give it a try, you might just like it.

Oval Key Chain Pattern Maker. Video Demonstration and Download Link.

If you are reading this in the email newsletter you may not be able to see the video above. Please visit my blog and watch it there.

Several weeks ago I had some of you guys test a program I had written to design and print oval key chain patterns. The test went okay but there were a certain percentage of printers that would not print the patterns to scale correctly. The number was low but I thought I would be able to fix the problem. Unfortunately I never resolved the issue so I never released the program.

Since that early test I keep getting email asking for the link to the program. I have decided that because it works with the majority of printers I will go ahead and release it with the knowledge that it may not work for some users. I feel that because it is free to download and use no one will be out anything other than time if it does not work for them. I will keep trying to fix the bug and update if I get it solved.

I have produced a quick introduction video for the program that will be available on my blog. You can download the program from the button below and it will be available on the top portion of my blog.

These little mini programs have been popular with thousands of downloads. I hope you will enjoy using this one also.

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.
