I want to share a website with all of you today. Gaylen Montgomery and his wife Karen give workshops in the Branson Missouri area. Their workshops include the Scroll Saw and mini lathe. Gaylen has been teaching scroll saw skills for many years to hundreds of craftsmen.
One of the more common emails I receive is "Where can I get hands on training for the scroll saw?" For those of you not familiar with the Branson area it is one of the top vacations spots in America. There are over 100 shows for your entertainment. This might be a great opportunity to schedule a vacation and enjoy one of Gaylens workshops while you are there. The workshops are $69+tax for a 3 hour session. The class times are 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm. If you are new to the scroll saw you can learn a great deal from a workshop. There is nothing better than hands on training with a skilled teacher. I don't think the workshops in Branson are year round so check with Gaylen for dates.
Gaylen also offers workshops in the Omaha and SW Iowa areas. You can check out all the details at
DVD and the 2013 update DVD at this link. DVD #1 is $20 and contains over 1,100 patterns. The 2013 update DVD is $7.50 and has another 178 patterns.
