My name is Doug Poat, I live on Long Island in NY with my wife and four children. Years ago I worked as a heliarc welder in a major aircraft manufacturer called Grumman Aerospace. When I wasn’t welding aircraft parts I kept myself busy by making jewelry from stainless steel welding rods. I really enjoyed the creativity of making detailed things and working with my hands. After I left that job, I couldn't seem to find a creative outlet that would satisfy me. I was introduced to the scroll saw and what it was capable of doing and realized I had to get one. While researching the topic I came across the web site I mentioned on the Home page and here and I was hooked. It had such a wealth of information about the scroll saw and where to purchase supplies. The site below, is owned by Steve Good, which also features his incredible Free Pattern Catalog where you will find over six hundred gift ideas. It makes no difference what the project is, I give each and everyone the same intense effort. I make each piece as if it is going on my own shelf like a trophy. This way I can make sure every piece comes out good.
For those of you unfamiliar with a scroll saw, here is an exact set up of my equipment.
