Halloween Black Cat Scroll Saw Pattern. Picture intensive post.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html

I thought that Woody The Skeleton needed a friend. Here is Spooky the black cat. Spooky is over 10 inches long. He is just about as easy a pattern as I can make. Five parts to cut and only one interior cut. If you plan to put spooky outside make sure you use water proof glue like Titebond III. Give Spooky a few coats of an exterior paint. He may not have nine lives outside but he should hold up for a few Halloweens.

I did my best to get some pictures from the Artistry in Wood show. I'll post a couple of the scroll saw artist that were at the show today then some of the carvers tomorrow. 

Let me apologize now for not getting pictures from all the scroll saw artists who were there. These are just two who I had time to spend some time with.

Tom Winkelbach:   

I had the pleasure to spend several minutes with Tom, his daughter and grandson. They were absolutely the reason these shows are so much fun to visit. Fantastic artists and genuinely nice people. Thank you Tom and family for being so kind to me. I enjoyed our visit so much.

Tom is a master with the scroll saw. When you look at these pictures make sure you check out the detailed approach and incredible technique. It was impressive to say the least.








Heart of Ohio Scrollers:

These guys were at the show representing the Heart of Ohio Scroll Saw Club. For some reason Ohio is a hotbed of scrolling talent. I apologize for not getting the names of the guys but this was early just before the doors opened and I had to rush back to my booth. Check out some of what they had to show. There were many projects that you won't see here that were equally impressive. Thanks for the conversation guys.

Now that I am back from Ohio I will start cranking the orders out. I'll do my best to get caught up tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.

Compound Cut Christmas Tree Scroll Saw Pattern.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
I know some of you are new to my blog and to the scroll saw. This project is called a compound cut.
The pattern is cut from two surfaces of the wood blank revealing a 3d cutting.

I used a construction grade 2X4 cit down square to the dimensions called for in the pattern.
Wrap two sides with blue painters tape and apply the pattern over the tape folded on the center line.
I drilled two entry holes on side one and side two.
I like to use a clamp jig but you could probably hand hold this piece. You can also just just a quick clamp. This Jig is in mya online catalog if you wish to build one. Just search for "jig" in the search box. You can get to the free online catalog from a link on my blog.
Complete cutting side one.
Flip the blank in the jig ad prepare to cut side two.
Remove the blank from the jig and get ready for the reveal.
Remove all the waste wood and see how you did.

A few pictures from the Show: Artistry in Wood.

 I was able to take photos today at the show and I may be able to do some video tomorrow. I wanted to share a few pictures so you could see just a sample of the talent that is here.

There are a few scroll saw artist here and I hope to get photos of them tomorrow.
 The show was well attended the first day. When they opened to door at 10am there was a good crown already waiting. The good news is that the show floor is so large that you never felt squeezed.
 The great news is that there were many scrollers who attended. All the scroll saw vendors told me they were pleased with the numbers.
 I spent my day getting to talk with people. Some had never used a scroll saw and seemed interested in trying the hobby. Many of the guests that stopped by had been scrolling for years which was great. I did not lose my voice but it got a little scratchy.
 For a show that is primarily targeted for carvers I feel like the scrollers did a good job of being represented. Judy Gale Roberts did her as usual wonderful jod doing her demonstration. I was sitting next to the demo room and I could hear how excited the attendees were when she showed her wonderful intarsia techniques. 
 Fox Chapel was there with their incredible selection of magazines and books. Wayne and Jacob Fowler were at the Fox Chapel booth showing their pattern book. This was the first time I had the pleasure to meet them. Very talented father and son duo. Chris from Scrollnado was there showing his great scroll saw dust collections system. The Scrollnado is now also available for the excalibur. I'll be working with Chris again soon. He does a great job for our community.

At of course Seyco was there and were my host. I think they had a good day. I saw a few saws making the trip to peoples cars. Lots of people took a keen interest in the Seyco ST-21 after they had a chance to sit in front of the machine and take a test drive.
I'm ready for another day and I will do my best to bring you more content from the show floor.

I hope to see a few of you there.
