Mothers Day

Mothers Day is just around the corner. This is a simple mini clock pattern for you to cut. The pattern requires a 1 7/16" mini clock insert.

Tomorrow is a day I have been looking forward to for a while now. There is a Woodcraft woodworking store opening here in town. I have had to drive about 90 miles to another city to visit Woodcraft in the past. It will be nice to be able to buy my supplies without spending all that money on gas.

Email from Tami

I received an email from Tami today. Her father has been a scroller for several years. They recently found my blog and decided to redesign one of my earlier patterns. This is a great way to get started designing patterns. I think it looks great.

Tami was obviously very proud of her father and his work. She wanted to share a picture of the round praying hands box. Thanks Tami and tell your dad to keep us posted on his new designs.

Two Word Art Patterns

Here are a couple word art patterns for Mothers Day and Fathers Day. (Worlds Best Mom) and (Worlds Best Dad). These patterns are 9 1/2" long and under 2" high. I usually cut these word art patterns in clear Pine. The Pine is easy to cut and no one really cares what wood you use in this type of pattern.

SK8 OR DIE Clock

This skateboarder pattern might just make your teenage stunt skater appreciate your work. The pattern requires a 1 7/16" mini clock insert. Cut this pattern from 3/4" wood to give it some depth. This is another pattern that could be customized with the skaters name placed on the base in front of the clock.

Army Retired Pattern

Do you have a retired US Army veteran in your life. Make them this wall hanging and they can show their pride to be a veteran.

Use 1/4 inch ply for the backer board. The eagle should be cut from 1/4" hard wood and applied to the backer board. Apply color paper behind the backer board to add a little color if you like.
