Reader Spotlight. Meet Darrell Cheeks.

Darrell puts a whole new meaning to the word dedication. He wakes at 2am every morning to spend five uninterrupted hours in his shop. He spends that time between his two hobbies of scrolling and his CNC router. Then he heads off to to work for nine hours. Darrell says "Yup, I get five hours sleep per night".

He loves to design his own patterns as well cut patterns from other designers.

Darrell lives in West Columbia South Carolina. He has been producing beautiful scroll saw art for four years with his 18" Delta Q3 scroll saw. You can see the web site where he presents his pieces at Wood Med Studio. Stop by his site and take a look around. Make sure you check out his sports themed pieces. If you have a sports fanatic in your life these would make a great gift idea. He has an Order/Contact tab where you can say hi and place an order for his work.

The pictures below are but a few of the wonderful projects Darrell has made.

If you would like to have your work featured at the Scrollsaw Workshop please email 3 or 4 pictures including a picture of yourself along with a short bio. It's fine to promote your website if you like.
