15" X 15" Tropical Flower Wall Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
The original design came from www.freepik.com. I cleaned it up and added a border. The pattern is broken up over four pages and will have to be reassembled before you apply it to the board. I highly suggest Baltic Birch plywood for this project but if you can manage a glued up hardwood board this big it would look beautiful.

I am considering making this the top of a small table. Recess this in the top with glass over the fretwork. I think it would be a show stopper to say the least.

There are two ways to go about cutting this pattern. Both ways have pros and cons. Because it's so large a spiral blade would make handling the board much easier. The problem there is that you will not get the same smooth curves that you would with a straight blade.

Using straight blades will give a more finished look to the pattern but will be a bit of a nightmare to handle the board. It will be especially difficult to cut the corners because the the large amount of board that will over hang the front of the table. 

If anyone takes on this challenging pattern I would love to see a picture. I'm sure everyone else would also. Someone very skilled with spiral blades needs to give this a try.

Everyone loves Tax Season!

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
This World's Best CPA plate is 7.5" in diameter. 

I had to take all my paper work to my CPA yesterday. That's always a fun time when you run a small business. I am a creative and I hate paper work. They are always telling me to keep track of expenses. This year I actually saved a few receipts for my expenses. He will probably be shocked.

I feel like most accounts are organized people. They have a hard time understanding us people who hate paper work so much that we would rather spend more in taxes than keep our selves organized. :)
I decided the least I could do is design a plate for him.

Information:
I have had a few questions about the Scrollnado dust collection system lately. This system connects the the DeWalt and Delta 40 series of saws. 

The system is currently available only on Amazon. At the bottom of this post in my affiliate ad I placed a link to the video review I did a while back. If you have questions about the Scrollnado that should answer most of them.

Email Newsletter:
When there is an error in the daily email newsletter please check the blog to see if I have corrected the problem. The email newsletter is just a copy of the daily blog post. Once the newsletter goes out it cannot be corrected or resent. Problems like missing links will usually get corrected pretty quickly. If I misspell a word or use poor grammar they probably won't get corrected. It's not that I don't care it's just that I have moved on to another project.

The reason this is important is that the email newsletter goes out to over 30,000 people every day. That's close to a million newsletters a month. As you can imagine when I make a error my email box gets flooded. I really appreciate the first person to report the error but everyone after that is extra work. If you check the blog before you send me an email it will really help a lot.

I know that the answer to this problem is for me to not make errors but at this point in my life I doubt that is going to happen. :) It seems like every day older I get the easier I am distracted. I have set up a system that I follow every post to try to catch the errors. Look there's a bird. What was I saying?
