Thanksgiving Turkey Scroll Saw Pattern.


Next week we will celebrate a day giving thanks. I know a lot of people here in the U.S. would be thankful if the weather would give us a break. When you see some of the pictures in the news it's crazy. Six feet of snow! Hopefully the weather will break and everyone will be able to safely travel for the holiday.

I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for my wife and daughter. I'm thankful that my brother and his family will be coming to thanksgiving dinner with us at my daughter's house. I'm thankful that my daughter cooks a mean Thanksgiving dinner! I'm also thankful that I can share my passion of scrolling with all of you. My list of thanks could go on and on but let me just end by saying thanks to all of you for giving me another year of writing this blog. I'm having a blast.

Three Layer Chimney Clock Scroll Saw Pattern.

This clock is ten inches tall. It is made up of three layers. The front 3/4" thick layer has the fretwork. The center 1/4" thick layer is for accent and the back 3/4" thick layer gives the clock mass.

The clock requires a 2 3/4" diameter clock insert with a hole size of 2 3/8". It is best to use a 2 3/8" diameter forstner bit for the hole but it can be carefully cut with the scroll saw.

The clock has a gentle taper toward the top. The top is curved. If you have some very nicely figured wood you could even do away with the flower fretwork. That would make a more masculine clock.

After the three pieces are cut you need to carefully align and clue up the clock. It does not have to be perfect because you will sand the sides, bottom and top for a smooth finish.

Image Problem Update:
It looks like Google has fixed the image not showing up in the email newsletter. At least I hope they have. This is the first post since I saw the change they made. If you are seeing this in the email newsletter and you do not see the image of the clock then just visit the blog and look at the daily post section. Fingers crossed. 

We are doing well keeping up with the custom Christmas ornaments this year. If you would like to place an order just look for the order button below.  I will be working on a free display box for the ornaments soon. That will give you a nice wooden box to deliver the ornament to that special person. I'll try to get it designed this week.

Don't forget to enter the monthly giveaway. Sue Mey over at www.scrollsawartist.com is again sponsoring the giveaway and she has some beautiful patterns so make sure to check out her site. Details went out last week. If you missed it visit the blog and look for the contest post in the daily post section. You may have to navigate back a page to find it.

Tiki Statue Scroll Saw Pattern.


The last couple of email newsletters had a problem. The image of the pattern did not show up and in some cases it would close the email client.  This seems to be caused by a change in the way Google embedded the image in the email.  The email newsletter is just a copy of the daily blog post and it is automated so I don't have as much control as I would like.

I made a change to the image for today's pattern. I won't know if this work around will work until the email newsletter goes out. There should be an image of the Tiki Statue above this text in the email. If you don't see it then you can always open the pattern and look at the pdf. Also always remember that all the posts are always available on the blog in the daily content section. If you ever miss the email or want to see an older post just visit the blog. 

The boring part and an ask for help:
I believe that the problem with the images is the change Google recently made. In the past when you embedded an image in an email it would be retrieved from what ever server it was stored on. This worked fine but had a couple disadvantages. It could be slow to retrieve the image and it allowed marketers to gather some tracking info on the user.

Google decided to fix this issue by taking the images in the email and caching them on their own server. Sounds like a monumental task but Google is Google and they apparently can afford the storage. Those images are then used in place of the original. The images that are then embedded in the email are also encrypted and sent via https instead of http.

When I embed an image in a post I upload it to Google via blogger and use that image in the post. That's the way I have always done it but now for some reason the above problem has started. Because they are on Google's server I can change the image link to http. That's what I have done for today's post and will see if that works when to post goes out. It works fine on the blog.

Below this text on the left is a small red rectangle. That image is embedded with the https intact. It's there as a reference to see what happens.

If any of you are expert web developers or bloggers I would appreciate input on this problem. I may be completely off base with what I think is the problem but I know other Google bloggers are also having the same problem so I think I'm at least looking in the right direction. Any ideas?

Flying Dutchman. The blades recommended by Steve Good

Why do I recommend the Flying Dutchman blades? I could say they are high quality, sharp and consistent. That would be a good reason. I could say the price per blade is great and that would be an excellent reason. Those are the reasons I buy them but I recommend them because I like doing business with Mike at Mike's Workshop. When I send a reader of the Scrollsaw Workshop to Mike he takes care of them. That makes me look good and keeps my readers coming back.
