The 2009 Albury-Wodonga Scroll Saw weekend was another great success this year. Months of preparations paid off and everyone had a great weekend. Jutta Vyner was kind enough to write up a document showing all the great projects and merriment. Download Document . The document is a bit large so I have included a few pictures from the event below.
Thanks to everyone who turned out to make the event such a success. A special thank you to Jutta for documenting the event.

I know it's difficult for the untrained eye to see but I am hard at work in this picture. You just can not imagine the mental exertion involved in running the Scrollsaw Workshop. I spend hours a day in this position thinking up new patterns. My wife says the amazing thing is how I can do all this work with my eyes closed. Folks I'm a trained professional and you should not try this at home. I spent two years studying with Himalayan monks to perfect this dangerous technique.
I just wanted everyone to understand the reason I am so far behind on returning my email. It should be clear by now that I just don't have enough hours in the day. Don't worry though because I have purchased a trained monkey. The seller assures me that the monkey can do as much work as me.

If you want to practice your 3D scroll saw cutting skills this pattern is for you. The pattern is easy to cut but you do need to be precise. The hole in the top needs to be drilled dead center and you need to follow the pattern lines close.
The blank needs to be 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Use a 3/4" forstner bit to drill the top before you apply the pattern. Make sure you mark the depth of the hole so you don't go too far.
I used a small piece of construction grade 2x4 and ripped it to 1 1/2". I used a vice to hold the piece on my drill press and drilled the hole. I then applied the pattern and carefully cut side one. Flip the piece to side two and continue to cut out the pattern.
If you have never done any 3D cutting before I have a couple of videos in the video library that explain the technique and how to make a 3D cutting jig if you like. The videos are from several months back but are good reference material for this project.
