Rick Hutcheson, Scrollsaw Expert
Production scrolling became Rick's passion
While working with Meredith Corporation and WOOD Magazine, Rick became the cut-wood supplier for many of their crafting publications. This became one of the largest operations one could dream of, with over 300 multi-piece ornaments being cut daily for numerous publications. It was in completing these daily orders that Rick developed a scrollsaw speed averaging three to four times the normal craftsman.
Rick's own website about scrollsawing offers free videos, reviews, tips, and technical articles on maintenance and repair. Having purchased old 19th century catalogs on scrollsaw patterns, he has over 2000 full size Victorian patterns available online. Information is offered for anyone interested in working with scrollsaws, and there is a section of the website dedicated to the 200 antique saws in his personal collection. Rick enjoy passing along everything he has learned from this craft to other interested individuals.
Rick's passion is summed up in his own words, "After all this time, I believe my biggest problem is knowing when I am cutting for work and when I am cutting for pleasure."
