Colorful Fish Scroll Saw Pattern

I hope everyone in the US is enjoying the long Memorial Day weekend. Please take time to remember those who have lost their lives serving our country.

Today's project is simple and colorful. All you need is some 3/4" poplar or other wood that paints well. Even MDF will work well if you take the time to seal the edges before you apply the paint. The dowels are 1/4" diameter.

Jeff Gordon NASCAR Legend Scroll Saw Pattern

Jeff Gordon is in his last full season as a NASCAR driver. Jeff started his Winston Cup career in 1992. Before this season he announced this would be his last season to compete for a championship. He is not officially retiring from racing so it will be interesting to see what the future holds.

Jeff is considered to be one of the best drivers of all time and is absolutely a NASCAR Legend.

I have mentioned before that my wife has been a big NASCAR and Jeff Gordon fan for years. Her family has a history in racing as her uncle was a NASCAR driver back in the 50's and 60's.  She watches every race and has for as long as I can remember. She is going to miss cheering for Gordon next season.

This tribute scroll saw pattern to Jeff has a few difficult sections to cut. Some of the veining in Jeff's figure is very tight. If you use the RapidResizer utility on my blog you can enlarge the pattern which will make it easier to cut. If you cut it at the designed size you will need to use a small blade for the veining in Jeff's face. I have not test cut this pattern so use caution and plan your cuts before you begin.

New Concentric Ring Bowl Scroll Saw Pattern.

Back in 2008 I published my first concentric ring bowl. It actually was a vase but it was the same technique. I had seen the technique in a book by Patrick Spielman. Over the years I think I designed one other bowl with the technique. It's a very neat process involving cutting rings with the scroll saw table tilted to a certain angle then stacking the rings into a bowl.

They look quite complex but are really pretty easy to make. The toughest part is the sanding.

These bowls can look incredible when cut from a nice hardwood with lots of figure. You can also do glue-ups of different species to make patterns in the bowl. 

Sometime around 2009 or 2010 Carole Rothman published a book taking the technique to a whole new level.  In her book she has designs of several different bowls. If you are interested in this technique you should certainly find her book. Here is a link to her book on Amazon.

Center Finder Line for Re-Sawing on a Band Saw

As scrollers we often need thin wood boards. The most economical way to get thin boards is make your own. One tool we need to do this is a band saw. When we cut a board to make it thinner this is called re-sawing. There are different techniques to re-sawing on a band saw. I simply free hand cut the board on a center line. This simple Jig in today's pattern will automatically center the line on the edge of the board. This is quicker and easier than using a ruler and straight edge.

Below is a quick video showing it in use. Sorry for the shaky video. I didn't have my tripod available.
