Rich’s Wood Shop

Address

It is funny how you start doing things and the next thing you know you are selling some. My shop journey started several years ago when I answered an ad for a planner I was looking to buy. The guy selling the planer had a old scroll saw for sale also. The price was good on both, so I bought both. I had never cut anything on a scroll saw, but I have made a great deal of things out of wood. I found a pattern book at thrift store and made a few things for a craft fair I was doing. Mostly plywood ornaments you put in house plant pots. I started to make some crosses and Christmas ornaments for my daughter and grand kids to sell a church craft fair. My interest was more in building outdoor wood furniture. I made a few sets and sold them, but was never able to really get it off the ground. Fast forward to now, I found that I was drawn back to the scroll saw and wanted to concentrate more on doing wood ornaments for all occasions , wood signs and layered wildlife wall decor. I love the artistry of the scroll saw. Taking a piece of wood and with about 10 to 100 cuts it is transformed into a beautiful piece of art a real heirloom. Each internal cut requires a very small hole. Just large enough to get the saw blade through.  
Morning are my most productive time. I get up , do my devotions and then spend an hour to an hour and a half running my scroll saw. Once I finish a piece it is sanded smooth, the dust is vacuumed off and then finished with linseed oil.
