Free Halloween sample pattern from Sheila Landry.

Sheila and Keith over at Sheila Landry designs are here again to offer a free sample pattern. These two Halloween ornaments are just a sample from a collection you can find on the site. They have also been busy updating the site with lots of new and exciting patterns.

Look I'm just going to tell it like it is. There are a very small handful of scroll saw pattern designers in the world. Of those maybe three or four produce 70 percent of the really nice patterns out there. Sheila Landry, Sue Mey and Dirk Boelman are at the top of that list in my opinion. Without these folks using their talent to design scroll saw patterns the hobby would get very boring very fast.

I know not everyone has the funds available to buy patterns. That's why I do what I do. If you do have some discretionary money then please support these very talented designers and buy from them. Even a single $5 pattern purchase helps them keep designing.

If you spend even a few minutes at Sheila Landry Designs you will find a pattern you will love cutting. I know this sounds like an advertisement but I don't take a penny from Sheila. I do this because if you buy from her the hobby benefits. You will be happy with your purchase because she only sells great patterns.  Go take a look. Support the hobby of scrolling.

Morning Prayer Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is a large pattern. it's 15 inches tall and 10 inches wide. I think it would look great cut from a 3/4" thick solid board.

Important Message:
Yesterday I posted a youtube video showing the construction of a rubber band gun. I thought the guy had done a nice job with the pattern so I told where he had the pattern hosted. Unfortunately the host he used for the pattern is a little sleezy. They have ads on the page that will sometimes show adult oriented crap. Some of the ads also look like download buttons to try and confuse you into clicking them. If I had noticed these ads I would not have posted the videos at all. I did download the pattern and scan it before I posted the videos. The pdf is clean. You just have to make sure you click the correct download button. 

I'm going to remove yesterdays post just to be on the safe side.If you still decide to download the pattern make sure you click the correct download button. It's the one under the file name.

Beautiful Wreath Patterns from Sue Mey.

Sue Mey wanted me to pass along a special offer she has posted on her web site. As always Sue has put together a collection that is a must buy. Her artistic talent always shows in her patterns. These are truly beautiful. If you have a craft show this holiday season I guarantee these would be excellent sellers. 

Scroll down and take a look at the Celtic cross patterns. I think those are outstanding.  


Advent is a season observed in many Western Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is an anglicized version of the Latin word "adventus", meaning "coming." It is the beginning of the Western liturgical year and commences on Advent Sunday. At least in the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Moravian, Presbyterian and Methodist calendars, Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before December 25, which is the Sunday between November 27 and December 3 inclusive.
The Advent wreath, or Advent crown, is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar of the Western church. The Advent Wreath is traditionally a Lutheran practice, but it has spread to many other Christian denominations. It is usually a horizontal wreath with four candles and often, a fifth, white candle in the center. Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent, the lighting of a candle can be accompanied by a Bible reading and prayers. An additional candle is lit during each subsequent week until, by the last Sunday before Christmas, all four candles are lit. Many Advent wreaths include a fifth, ‘Christ candle’ which is lit at Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. The custom is observed both in family settings and at public church services (source: Wikipedia). Detail of different colors used for the candles in the various church denominations is described in each pattern file. Wooden candle cups or decorative votive holders are used for the candles. Complete instructions are included.

Special Offer: For every four advent wreath patterns purchased, type the details of any $5.00 pattern from my website in the 'comments' section of the order form and it will be sent to your email inbox at no charge. Offer valid until Monday August 19th.

And the winner is........

There were a lot of great entries in the compound cut miniature deer contest. To be honest picking the winner was not that hard. Nancy Vincent submitted her little herd of deer standing on a quarter and she is the winner. Her deer have great detail and are very small. Nancy will receive a two year subscription to ScrollSaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine. Congratulations Nancy. I have sent you an email on how to receive your prize.

Thanks for all the entries. I will be posting more pictures of the entries in future posts.

Five layer wolf mini clock scene.


This wildlife scene is made from five layers of 1/4 inch thick wood. The wolves are howling at the moon which is a 1 7/16 inch mini clock insert. 

We have been crazy busy at work the last several days. I am way behind way behind on email again. My apologizes if I have not answered your email. I'm trying to get caught back up but it probably won't happen.

I posted the latest "George in the shop" cartoon on the blog this morning for those of you who have been following along.  Thanks to all of you who have given me the kind feedback of the cartoons. It's something I have wanted to do for a long time but didn't have the courage. It's much harder than designing patterns.

3D Deer cutting demonstration. Plus a contest.

This is a repeat of a post from 2009. I like to show it every couple years because it is a simple and fast project. After just a little practice you can show off your scroll saw skills to friends. You cut these miniature compound cut deer freehand without a pattern.

It's fun to see how small and fast you can cut one. Rick Hutcheson does them in under 30 seconds and makes them very small. I have cut dozens of these and I still can't get anywhere close to 30 seconds. Rick is probably one of the fastest scroll sawyers in the world so I don't feel too bad.

FUN CONTEST: US residents only(Sorry to all my overseas readers. You can participate but you can't win a prize. It get complicated.)

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW OR YOU CANNOT WIN!!!!!!

I will set the winner up with a 2 year subscription to Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts Magazine. That's a $40 value for 8 issues.  I can also give an Amazon gift card of the same value if preferred.

Send me a good picture of your smallest 3D deer standing on a quarter. If the picture is poor quality it will be hard to judge so take it carefully. Use the technique in the video and make it as small as you can and still have all the detail.

I will judge by grading the size and quality of the cut. Small is not good if the deer is not fully formed. If I think there are more than one of equal size and grading I will let my wife decide the winner. No bribes under $1000 will be accepted.

You MUST send your entries to this email address. giveaway@stevedgood.com

Please include your first and last name in the email.

Deadline for entries is Aug 16th 2013. I will announce the winner that weekend.

Show me what you've got.

Lets make a chalkboard.

I bought a can of Krylon chalkboard spray paint. It seems to work really well. Two coats on a piece of Baltic Birch plywood made a nice chalkboard finish. I'm thinking that 1/4" MDF might make a better finish. I'll try that next. This pattern makes an 8 x 10 Notes chalkboard.

It would be pretty easy to make personalized chalkboards for kids. Just use a stencil font and add a name to the top.

Warning Beware of Cat Scroll Saw Pattern.

I had several requests for this pattern after yesterdays beware of dog pattern. I guess there are a lot of folks with guard cats out there. When I was young the only thing our cats ever guarded was his food bowl. :) -
I was browsing Youtube tonight and ran across this video. If you own a band saw do yourself a favor and watch Alex Snodgrass of Carter Products set up a band saw correctly. He dispels several myths and shows how to expertly do the job. I was doing just about everything wrong. He taught me things I though I already knew. Don't miss this one.
