I have always enjoyed doing giveaways here on the blog. They are fun and many of you seem to agree because I get hundreds and sometime thousands of entries. I have been looking for a giveaway sponsor and I have found a great one. Bear Woods has agreed to try out a collaboration with the Scrollsaw Workshop. They will supply product and gift certificates for monthly giveaways and reviews. I am working on the details of the giveaway now and will announce something soon so we can get started.
In the mean time I humbly ask that you go take a look at what they have to offer. Let's support companies that support our hobby. I want you to start out by looking at their Swiss made Pegas scroll saw blades. I have used just about every brand of scroll saw blade out there. The Pegas blades are at the top of my list. It is worth your while to experiment and find the blade that works best for you. There is a big difference in blade quality across the brands. If you are using a lesser quality blade you are going to be pleasantly surprised with Pegas blades. https://www.bearwood.com/
