3D Cowboy Art Scroll Saw Pattern

This scroll saw pattern is 9" wide and 6" high. The clock insert is optional. You can just cut the hole and it will be the moon.

It's difficult to see in the picture but each element is 1/4" thich and sits in front of the layer behind it giving a 3d look.

There is enough room on the base to sit a candle if you like. The candle high lites the 3d effect by casting flickering shadows.

Using different species of wood gives the project a great look. In this example I used Walnut for the sky and base. The cowboy is Peruvian walnut. The cactus is Yellow heart and the dog is Bubinga. The mountains are Maple.

Enjoy the pattern.

Tilting Vanity Mirror

I designed this tilting vanity mirror to show how I use clip art to create scroll saw projects. The movie below will show the design process. This technique makes it much faster to design scroll saw patterns.

The project requires a 5" round mirror. I use two 1/2' brass screws for the pivots. Make sure you drill the countersunk holes for the pivoting screws before you cut the leafs pattern. Counter sink the screw hole deep enough so about 1/8" of the screw sticks out the hole.

Cut the pivot tabs on the outer frame long and sand to snugly fit the mirror frame. Make sure that when you tighten the brass screws the mirror will pivot and stay in position. As you tighten the screws the outer frame will put pressure on the mirror to keep it tight.

Time to start cutting ornaments!

Well it won't be long before the Christmas season is here again. Christmas ornaments are probably the most popular scroll saw projects.

I have put together a small collection of ornaments for you to start getting ready for the holidays.

I usually use 1/4" wood and stack cut two or three at a time.

Enjoy the patterns
