Alaska Creative Woodworkers association
a club for carvers, scrollers, and woodworkers
Alaska Creative Scrollers
The Alaska Creative Scrollers are a group who just love to make sawdust. We meet monthly from September through May. During our club meetings we share about our current projects while we are scrolling. We also share all the tricks and tips we've learned along the way and hold classes. We love to share and teach new members how to scroll. Throughout the year club members work on making puzzles and toys for the children in the hospital. These toys and puzzles are given out by Santa at Christmas. It's a great joy to provide these gifts to the children. In August we set up our saws at the State Fair. As we demonstrate the techniques, we are making simple stand-up puzzles to give to the children while they watch. The children have great fun playing with puzzles and toys.
The scroll saw is a fairly safe tool that can be used by all ages. Children as young as ten are enjoying the hobby. The scroll saw can be used to make decorative art pieces, clocks, bowls and even helpful household tools just to mention a few. The scroll saw can be used to cut wood, thin metal, plastic, paper and even solid surface counter material. There are many sources of patterns to cut or you can design your own. It does make dust, but not as much as the larger shop tools so it can be used in a smaller space. This hobby requires very few tools. We welcome anyone to come and try this creative art form.
