Rubber Band Powered Canon Scroll Saw Pattern.

This little canon packs a pretty good punch. It uses two rubber bands to ram the firing pin into the barrel propelling the shell down range.

The tricky part of this project is drilling out the barrel. It uses a 3/8" dowel for the firing pin. The pin needs to slide into the barrel smoothly. I used a 25/64" drill bit to drill out the barrel which is just bigger than the firing pin. A drill press is almost a necessity for this project. You may be able to do it with an hand drill but it will be a challenge to get it bored straight.

The shells are cut from the same 3/8" diameter dowel and rounded over. I would have preferred small wooden canon balls but I could not come up with an easy way to make them. 

I did my best to give instructions in the pattern with lots of pictures but it is actually easier to study the pictures first. The written instructions were not easy so they may be tough to follow. These four pictures give everything you need to understand the construction.Despite it's small size I would give this pattern a moderate rating just because of the need to bore the barrel. If you have a drill press and a centering jig the project is easy.

Also keep in mind that the drilling operation can be dangerous. Holding the dowel with only your hand while drilling runs the risk of the bit getting wedged in the dowel. When this happens holding the dowel is not possible and it will spin in your hand and possibly give you a burn or cut. Be careful and do it right.

"He asked.. I said yes". Scroll Saw Pattern.

"He asked.. I said yes". My daughter will be getting married later this year so I wanted to make her something for her desk at work. It's simple but I think she will like it. At least she will tell me she likes it. :)

This pattern requires two 2" picture frame inserts. As I looked around for inserts I noticed that the 2" picture frame inserts have different specs for the mounting hole. The ones I used in this pattern require a 1 7/8" diameter hole. Sloan's Workshop carries the ones I used. Just look under the (clock insert) category. If you buy something different you will need to adjust.

First Kiss Scroll Saw Pattern.

This pattern kind of reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting.  Rockwell has always been my favorite painter/illustrator. When you looked at one of his painting there was always a story happening. He could capture the moment in time that told the story better than any other illustrator.

I'm not saying the pattern is anywhere near the illustration genius of a Rockwell but as I was drawing it I thought of Rockwell and that made me smile.

This is an example of how I sometimes design a pattern. In this case there was no plan. No idea of where I was going. I had the car and was thinking about a safety type pattern. Then the teens popped into my head. That led to the kiss. Then the cop came knocking. It's just free association. It does not always lead to a great pattern but it's a fun way to be creative.

When you design patterns every day the ideas are by far the hardest part of the process. I have all kinds of tricks that I do to make an idea happen. Sometimes it works and sometimes it flops but It's always fun.

There probably won't be many people cut this pattern but sometimes I just have to let it go where it goes.

What time is it? Beer time.

-

This clock requires a 2 3/4" clock insert with a 2 3/8" mount hole. Make this clock as a gift for your favorite watering hole. It should also go good in your man cave.

Q: What is a rednecks last words? 
A: "HOLD MY BEER AND WATCH THIS!"


Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.


A hamburger walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve food in here."

A soccer ball walks into a bar. The bartender kicked him out.

An Irishman walks out of a bar. Hey, it COULD happen!

Update:
I had several readers let me know that the hold down clamps I used for the dowel cross cut jig are available at Harbor Freight and Menards considerably cheaper than Woodcraft. The Harbor Freight ones are under $6.

Scroll Saw Dowel Cross Cut Jig. Final Version.

This is a simple dowel cross cutting jig for the scroll saw. It features a hold down clamp, stop block clamp, steel insert to prevent wear and a printable right to left tape measure.

For this project to be clear you need to watch the video linked below. The video will give you the details you need to build and use the jig.

The jig is for making consistent and repeatable cross cuts of different size dowel rods. You won't use this jig every day but when you do it makes the job easier.
You don't have to add the clamps to use the jig. They add convenience but they are not that cheap. You just have to decide if you would use the jig enough to make them worth the price. On Amazon they are about $8 apiece. Woodcraft sells them for $14. This style clamps comes rated for different pounds of force. This application requires the lowest rating and they are cheaper.
