I feel like a proud papa tonight.


I received this picture in an email tonight from Robert aka Sawduster Scroller. Robert took second place at a woodworkers show over the weekend in Raleigh, NC. When I posted the pattern of this guitar here on the Scrollsaw Workshop a couple weeks ago he fell in love with the project. Needless to say the judges loved it also. Thanks Robert you made my night.

This is in beta right now. I'll be making changes to the programming over the next few weeks. Let me know about any issues you have. The streaming video will require a moderately fast internet connection.

Reader Spotlight. Meet Robert D'Alimonte

Bob lives in Amherst New York. He has been scrolling for about 5 years. When he started out he purchased an entry level saw and soon became hooked. His scrolling nearly turned into an obsession. He started buying books, magazines and searching the web for information. That sounds familiar does it not.

Bob was inspired by Gary Browning's Scroll Saw Portrait's book. Like many he was amazed that you could create a portrait of a loved one in wood. He later found Jeff Zaffino's Amazing patterns and like many of us was in awe of his work. He followed Jeff's articles in the magazines about running a business from the craft. Bod is a full time programmer and software architech. He would eventually like to transition into full time woodworking.

After his 16" Craftsman scroll saw finally bit the dust he purchased an Eclipse scroll saw. He has found the saw almost vibration free and a joy to use. He says his purchase from Ernie Mellon and the way the saw performs exceeded his expectations.

Bob is still doing scrolling part time but has recently opened a web site to sell his work. Amherst Woodworks . Please take a minute to visit his site and say hello.

The pictures below are just a sampling of the beautiful work Bob produces. Thanks Bob for taking the time to share your story with us.
