A mind is a terrible thing to lose.

I have always wondered how it would start. Now I know. First it's aches in the joints then you start sleeping during the day. That is followed up by forgetting things. Nothing big at first, just little events like birthdays and waking up. Then the first signs of dementia slap you in the face and it hits you. You are getting old.

Okay I admit it. It's all down hill from here but you would think I would at least not add a new character to Roman numerals. They have been around a while now so when I added the Roman numeral N the the last pattern you would think I would have caught the mistake. But no.

Thanks for all you that found my error and let me know. The pattern has been corrected and if you got the bad one just download it again.

Off to be evaluated now.

Airforce Emblem Scroll Saw Pattern


Several months back I did a series of military emblems. I never finished the Air Force emblem for various reasons. I promised several readers back then that I would eventually try to complete the series. Tonight I finished.

There will be a bit of a challenge to cut the letters out of the center board. Some of them are pretty small an will require a small blade. A #1 or a #2/0 should do the trick.

The emblem is a sandwich of three layers. A plain backer board, a center board with the letters cut out of it then all the ornamentation is applied to the middle layer. After you get the letters cut the rest should be pretty easy. I don't have time right now to do a test cut. If any of you give this pattern a try I would appreciate feedback on any problems.

It is official. We have our winners!!

I am happy to say that the winner of the Craftsman scroll saw returned the email and it's now Official. Jerry Bair Has won the scroll saw and Jared Schlabach won the $20 Amazon gift certificate for answering the bonus question first.

It was funny when I emailed each of them to let them know they won. They both replied that they never win anything. Now they can check that off their list of things to do.

In the picture of Jerry above he is holding his first scroll saw project. He cut it from Teak that a relative brought back from WWII. Now that's a great way to make a family heirloom. I am honored that he cut it using one of my patterns.

Jerry plans to give the saw to his son Brian who is just back from his military tour in Iraq. I am thrilled that the saw will go to such good use. Congratulations Jerry/Brian.

When I posted the video of the winner I had included a bonus question and Jared was right on the ball with the answer. I think it took him about three minutes to email the correct answer. I'll have to make the next one a little harder.:) Jared tells me he has been scrolling about one year and has cut several of my patterns. Thanks Jared it's great to have you with me.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Wish I could give you all a prize. You guys are all winners in my book.

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.
