look forward to seeing it, yesterday I bought some 6mm plywood from a Home Hardware store in Newton Stewart they are a Scottish franchise so not sure if they have them in England? anyway it was 3 sheets 4ft x 2ft for £21.00 which i thought was alright and the quality is pretty good but while i was looking i noticed they had some 3mm plywood and that also looked pretty good, next time i go i will buy some 3mm and what its like cut but if its anything like the 6mm i have been buying for year there it will be good.
Cheers
Brian

hi all got the cherub gears and all finished cutting tonight and did a bit of a dry assembly, only to find I have no 3 mm dowel so went on amazon and ordered some only to find they are coming from wing wang land and wont be here till July sometime.

I have been following a couple of scroll saw sites on Facebook , and there are some fantastic patterns on there for free, i got one by a man called botas helder -he has loads on there -, of and angel so started that one and I have to start forward planning to make shepherds crooks for next years highland show, it can take up 2 months to cut and shape a water buffalo's horn ,that 's to get it to somewhere near show standard, thumb sticks are much quicker, so will have to do a mixture,

take care
John
