Berry Basket offers three beautiful advanced clock patterns for one low price.

Click Picture to Order

I want to say upfront that this is a review and not an advertisement. I paid for these patterns myself. My only contact with Berry Basket was to ask permission to use the pictures.

I received an interesting email from www.berrybasket.com the other day. It was advertising a sale of these three advanced clock patterns for $9.95. From top to bottom we have The Bell Tower Clock standing 23" tall and 19" wide. The America's Pride Clock standing 28" tall and 16" wide and last The Deer Silhouette Clock which is 18" tall.

This price is for the "Download Only" set of patterns. I personally prefer the download method because I like the instant delivery. A really nice option that Berry Basket provides is the ability to download the patterns even if you choose the paper patterns delivered by mail. Of course you will pay more for mail delivery.

The normal price for these three patterns purchased separately would be nearly $19 so the savings are pretty good. The checkout system on the Berry Basket site is about as easy as you can get. You select the download method of delivery and add it to the shopping cart. From there you just add you personal information and your choice of payment. The only downside for me here was that they don't accept Paypal which is my preferred payment method.

After I completed the payment the downloads were immediately available. Some sites make you wait until the payment is checked so this was also a nice touch.

I checked the sites privacy policy. They state that the personal information collected is for their use only. They use it for sending their customers sale information from their store only. I like to know that my information is not up for sale so I usually check this out before purchasing online.

Berry Basket does not offer a return for downloadable patterns. That is pretty standard policy for digital material. I did not see their return policy for mail order but I suspect they are not returnable either. I don't have a problem with this but I like to check out the policy just so I know.

The downloads were made available in three separate files. They are in Adobe Acrobat format which is also standard practice. Most computer can open Acrobat files and if yours will not it is easy to install the Acrobat reader. All my patterns use this format. If you can open my patterns you should have no problem with these.

The quality of the pattern is excellent. There is a section of scrolling tips that will help you complete the project. The pattern gives details about wood selection, recommended blades, sanding, using the pattern and much more. The picture below shows a sample of one piece. As you can see the pattern is crisp and clear. They use a thin line with grey background. This is my preference but I know some of you prefer the red line patterns.


The patterns also show an exploded view for easy assembly. This is very helpful especially for the more complicated Bell Tower Clock.

They refer to these clocks as advanced patterns. While the Bell Tower Clock might test your patience and cutting skill I don't think an intermediate level scroller will have trouble. I don't see any advanced assembly techniques. It is mostly slot and tab assembly. I don't think you need to feel intimidated by the advanced description.

I have not cut any of the patterns and actually don't plan to anytime soon. Because of this I can't speak about any errors in the patterns. I did spend several minutes looking for obvious errors found none.

I have spoken with the owner of Berry Basket, Matt Jones enough to feel comfortable saying that he takes pride in his business. He has reached out to the community on my forum from time to time and answered questions in a very helpful way. I have spoken to several Berry Basket customers and they have generally been very positive about their experience.

My experience with the purchase from Berry Basket was very good. The checkout was easy and the patterns are high quality. If you re looking for a nice challenge at a reasonable price give this set of patterns a try.



For all of you who ordered Custom Name Christmas ornament patterns I am working my fingers to the bone to get them out to you. It's going well and I think you will be pleased with the patterns. Thanks for all the orders. If you are considering the purchase of the ornaments just click the picture above and you will be taken to the order form.

Custom Name Christmas Ornaments.

The custom name Christmas ornaments were very popular last year. So popular my arm took weeks to recover. :) I'm going to offer them again this year and get a good early start. This will hopefully let me take it a little slower and make sure I am able to get them all finished this year. This should also give you more time to get them cut for all your family and friends. Get your order in early so you have plenty of time to finish.

You will have three styles to choose from. I will be using a different technique for inserting the name that I think looks better. Some characters were a little too distorted last year but I think I have that solved this year. The "D" was a particular problem. Notice on the bottom sample below that the "D" looks much better this year.

If you plan to cut several then Style 1 will be the easiest to choose. For a more special ornament ornament styles 2 and 3 will look great on the tree.

The minimum order is 5 ornaments for $5. Each additional ornament will be $1 per ornament. You will only make payment after you have received the patterns and are completely satisfied. The time to complete each order will vary but I will get them completed as soon as possible.

You can make payment by mail or with your credit card online. It is your option when you receive the invoice. The invoice will be emailed with the patterns upon completion.

Here is a sample page you can print out to see what the patterns will look like.

Here is the link to the ORDER FORM.

Style 2
Style 3




Here is a sample with a long name. Notice that they are still easily cut.

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.
