Sometimes a negative can turn into a positive.

Small jewelry gift box for your loved one. It's three inches in diameter and could be used for most types of jewelry.


Earlier today I posted a message asking for help.  I had been informed that a few of my patterns were available for sale on another site. I had contacted the owner and he was unwilling to discuss the issue. Because of that I ask for your support.

Good news and hopefully a new friend and online associate.

I have learned over many years that sometimes a negative can turn into a positive if both parties can just have a reasonable discussion. I needed your help to begin that discussion. Let me explain. I caught the owner of www.makeCNC.com off guard when I called him. After he had some time to think and was shown the level of support I have from your emails to him he responded and ask if he could call me. Of course I wanted to talk with him.

He politely ask me to send him my original work so he could compare the patterns. He was quickly convinced they were indeed my patterns. He gave me a call. As I had suspected he was sold the patterns from a source who told him they were original work. He will not be doing business with that source in the future.

I had researched him online for a couple hours and had come to the conclusion that he was a reputable and honest businessman. Crooks badly stand out on the internet. I knew we would be able to solve the issue.

We talked for several minutes and everything worked out. We may even have future joint projects.

One thing that I can always count on is the support I receive form all of you. Your emails made it clear to Paul that I was not just trolling him. I ask for your support and many of you did as I ask and politely ask Paul to work it out with me. Thank each and everyone of you who responded.

At this point I ask that you not send any further email to makeCNC.com. I want to make it clear that I firmly believe this was a misunderstanding on his part. I feel comfortable that his business is on the up and up. As a mater of fact I ask that you visit his website and take a look around. There really are some cool things there for Scroll saw, laser and CNC hobby folks.

Last I want to thank Paul Campbell from www.makeCNC.com. You were a gentleman and I appreciate the willingness to work through the issue.

Happy Thanksgiving. From the Scrollsaw Workshop.

I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Today in the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving. It's a day to enjoy family and friends and reflect on what we are thankful for. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to share my passion with so many wonderful and talented people around the world. The kind words and support I receive everyday through your emails and donations keeps me motivated to try to make the blog something that you are thankful for. I hope I achieve that at least some of the time.

Everyone be safe during your travels. Have a wonderful day and I'll be back Friday with another post.

Mom's Kitchen Word Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

With Thanksgiving just a day away there will be a lot of focus in the kitchen. This word art pattern celebrates all the mom's who make the kitchen the heart of the house.

Hey Guys I have not had a chance to post one of Sheila Landry's patterns for a while. She is a master at these inlay word art patterns that are so popular right now. I think she is the original creator of this style of word art. I have seen these copied by several designers because they are so cool. These are easy to cut and look fantastic. This is a free sample on her site but she has many others available. 

Give this free one a try then check out all the others she has available. I think these would make wonderful Christmas gifts. Thanks Sheila for such wonderful designs.

Congratulations to the 2015 Sprint Cup Champion, Kyle Busch.

Kyle Busch capped an incredible year by winning the final race of the season and the Championship. Kyle pulled off a near miracle comeback from an early season wreck that broke his leg and caused him to miss 11 races. His thoughts of a first championship in 2015 should have ended with that wreck but somehow he managed make it into the chase and he never looked back. The driver known for his temper and great driving ability has earned this championship.

Simply Wooden Creations Video Contest Winners Announcement.

A few weeks ago Russ Claridy from Simply Wooden Creations announced his first annual Scroll Saw Video Contest. This year the theme was Halloween.  I was happy to be one of the sponsors of the contest. Tonight Russ announced the winners. The three videos below are the first three places. There were lots of creative projects and videos. You can check out the playlist of all the entries on Russ's site. The 1st place winner was James Robanske with his pumpkin intarsia entry. James chose as his prize the Porter Cable scroll saw that I was happy to sponsor. Great job by all the contestants. 

Thanks Russ for a fun contest. You could tell that everyone had a fun time with the videos. 

 

3rd place John Cosens (Skull Candelabra)

2nd place Steve French (Charlie Brown Intarsia)


1st place James Robanske (Intarsia Pumpkin)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas Scroll Saw plate.

-

Eight inch diameter scroll saw plate.

-
I received and email from Lee Neiden the other day. He let me know about a new venture he and some other scrollers have started. I don't have a ton of details but I wanted to bring it to your attention. They are releasing the first issue of "Scrollers Choice & Woodworking Arts Magazine". This is the Holiday issue. They plan on four issues a year. This will be a print magazine not an eMag.

Apparently the first issue won't ship until Dec 3rd. That seems a little late but it will still give you time to make some of the projects for this Christmas. He tells me the price will be $6.50 per issue plus shipping. That's a great price for all the pattern that will be included. I don't think this it is a subscription based magazine so it looks like you can buy the first one and check it out.

Starting a print magazine is a huge undertaking. I hope they can get this off the ground because we need things like this to keep the hobby growing. I post more information as I get it.

Here is the link to their website  http://scrollerschoicemag.wix.com/home.

Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Rings Scroll Saw Pattern.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. These little turkey napkin rings will make you table setting stand out with that personal touch. The project requires 1/8" and 1/2" thick wood. I actually used 3/8" thick for the body because that's what I had available. If you don't have hardwoods in these thicknesses you could use Baltic birch plywood.

Many of you emailed me that the "Pray For Paris" pattern link was broken in the last post. When I make a mistake and the email newsletter goes out I can't always correct the link that has gone out. I will always correct it on the blog and in the catalog. Anytime you have trouble with a link just visit the blog or check the catalog. I will correct it there. The "Pray for Paris" pattern is available in the catalog for those who would like to download it. Sorry for the trouble.

Here is a video from "Paul's Messy Workshop". Paul makes some Christmas ornaments from one of my patterns. Take a look. Thanks Paul.

U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Scroll Saw Pattern.

Title 10 of the U.S. Code declares that the purpose of Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps is to instill in students in United States secondary educational institutions the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment."

The study of ethics, citizenship, communications, leadership, life skills and other subjects designed to prepare young men and woman to take their place in adult society, evolved as the core of the program. More recently, an improved student centered curriculum focusing on character building and civic responsibility is being presented in every JROTC classroom.

Employee of the Month 3rd Runner Up. Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is a "just for the fun of it" pattern. We probably all feel a little under appreciated at work sometimes. I guess 3rd runner up is better than "also ran".

The pattern book has two patterns. The ribbon in the picture and a larger plate style pattern.
