A scroll saw is bound to generate fine sawdust so it's not really a good idea to use one in a room with plush carpets and curtains. However, if you've got a tiled kitchen and a tolerant spouse who would appreciate a few hand-made trivets and coasters... :) . You will probably be limited to using wood which is prepared for you by a retailer (someone like Hobbies of Dereham or a local craft shop) which will be more expensive than the wood many scrollers are able to buy and machine themselves. Oh, and treat yourself to a small hand-drill too, which you'll need for pierced work.
