Okay, I should have know I could count on you guys and gals. The new Scrollsaw Workshop Community Forum got off to an incredible start. Over 500 registered users the first 24 hours. Heading toward 700 posts of great comments and information from several countries around the world.
I'm sure there will be a few glitches as I learn how to effectively maintain the forum. So far just minor problems have crept up (fingers crossed). I have a couple moderators lined up who will start helping out in the next couple days. Please give them your utmost cooperation while they learn the ropes.
Ask questions if you have them and we will try to answer as best we can. Remember the forum software is complicated to operate so we might have to take the question and get back to you later. Just be patient while get the ball rolling.
Thanks again and if you have not stopped by the forum we invite you to give it a try.
On another note I am hoping to completely replace the Reader Photo Gallery soon. The one we have is horrible. The new one, if all goes well will allow user uploads and comments. If you have submitted photos recently I am holding them for the new forum. Now if I can just figure out how to make the dang thing work. :)

Hey guys, I have a special project to share with you all today. Mike Conolly sent me this project he designed. It is a secret locking box. After you close the box and install the end pieces it will not be at all obvious how to reopen it. It's a nice simple design and should be pretty easy to make.
I drew up the plans from Mike's specs so I hope they are not too confusing. Study the pictures before you start and work out your strategy for construction.
I did not include the ornamental piece on top because Mike did not send that to me but you can add whatever design you like to make it your own.
Take a minute to go to Mike's ETSY site and take a look around.
Thanks Mike. We all appreciate the effort you put into this design. Nice work.
