Cherub Clock Scroll Saw Pattern

Requires a 2 3/4" Clock insert. Woodcraft part number 142320. This is an easy pattern to cut.

One of the things I enjoy the most about writing this blog is receiving email. Unfortunately as the blog keeps growing I keep getting further behind on answering email. This is a great problem to have because it means the interest in our hobby is as high as ever. Keep the email coming. Please don't be offended if I don't get back to you right away. I am working on a couple ideas that might help so hang in there with me. Thanks guys.

Yin and Yang Scroll Saw Box

This scroll saw box is four inches in diameter. I used some 2" thick sycamore for the walls. The top is made up of Birds eye maple and a piece of mystery wood I don't recognize from my scrap box. I wish I would have used a little more contrast in the wood choice but you can learn from my mistake.

You don't have to make the box so tall if your saw can't handle the thickness. Sycamore is a very easy wood to cut so my saw handled it with no problem. I would try to keep the walls at least 1" deep if at all possible.

Notice how the lid pieces are rounded over where they meet. This makes any cutting errors less noticeable when you close the lid. The lid pieces pivot on dowel rods inserted into the walls.
