This is a very special request from a good friend of the Scrollsaw Workshop. I received an email from Murray today. On Wednesday morning he had a heart attack. Murray was rushed to the local hospital where he was stabilized pending a 70 mile ambulance ride to a cardiac center. During the trip his BP dropped to 60/40. Luckily the EMT's knew exactly what to do and kept him going during the trip. During the ride Murray reflected on the important things in his life, his family. He was saddend that he might not have the opportunity to say goodbye to his grand children. After the long trip they found that Murray had one totally blocked artery. After some clot busting and a stent implant Murray was able to return home today.

What was the thing on Murray's mind when he got home? He wanted to say thank you to the EMT's that were a big part of saving his life. As long as he does not over do it he can do a little work in his shop. Murray wanted a pattern that he could cut and give to those EMT's.

This pattern is for all those hero's out there that save lives and rescue us dangerous situations. I salute the men and women that keep this important service going 24 hours a day. Thank you.

Murray, I wish you a very speedy recovery. I hope all your holiday wishes come true and that your family and you are safe, happy and healty in the new year.

This pattern requires a 1 7/16" mini clock insert.

Scroll Saw Tip:
Start a cut in a corner or point. This helps hide the transition when you come back to finish the cut. If you start in the middle of a curve you will find it difficult to make a smooth transition. This will help cut down on sanding.
