Scroll Saw Standing Elephant Puzzle

This scroll saw pattern stands about 7" tall. I did something I have never done before. I cut it from 3/4" MDF. I thought I would experiment a little. I might try painting the puzzle and see how that looks. The MDF cut very well and there was almost no need to sand afterwards.

I think I will make a few more of these with different animals. They are very easy to cut and fast to make. The retirement community where my mother lives is having a yard/craft sale in a couple weeks. I think she could sell some of these for the grandchildren that always visit there.

Moving and Positioning Objects in CorelDraw

I wanted to make another Corel Draw video. This time I will discuss moving and positioning objects on the screen. To keep patterns accurate and well balanced you need to be able to move things around the page accurately. I will discuss the align and distribute tools as well as using temporary guidelines for accuracy.

I still have several readers asking for more Corel Draw tutorials. I know not everyone cares about designing their own scroll saw patterns but that's part of why I started this blog. For those of you looking for patterns that's fine also. I'll be posting more patterns soon. The way I look at it the more people that have the skill to design patterns the more patterns that will be out there for us to cut.

If you have designed a pattern that you would like to share with the readers here send it to me and I'll post it. I will only post patterns that the readers are free to cut and sell as many as they like. You will still own the rights to the pattern.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial video.
