Pattern donations from Alan Daines.

I received an email from Alan the other day. He wanted to share a couple patterns he had designed with all of you. I also wanted to share what he wrote.

Hello Steve,

I would just like to thank you for your excellent video on the RJR Studios Sanding Mop. Living in the UK I thought it would be a problem buying one but Angelina at RJR gave me the name of a UK distributor and, after ordering, it was here next day and I must say my productivity and the finish have improved.

Although I owned a Hegner Scrollsaw for some 25 years it has only been since last October I have been exploring the sort of work that you do. I now buy sawn boards from a local timber merchant and process them down to blanks to mainly make up hanging ornaments, 90% of which are from your designs.

Everything I make, now from a new Hegner variable speed saw, I send to my Sister in Law in Australia who in turn sells them locally to raise funds for an orphanage in Burma.

Everything I make is donated, I get a lot of pleasure and fulfilment from making them, and to date I have made over 2000 with another 1600 plus on the order book.

My wife Barbara and I have been involved with Humanitarian Aid work for over 10 years now and this is a wonderful extension to what we do.

I received a request for “Hope” in a circle and after watching your videos tried my hand at designing one. Also I thought it would be a good idea to design a Kukaburra in a circle and with the knowledge gained from your videos made one up. It must have been reasonably good because the Australians recognised it immediately.

I have attached photos and patterns of them both and if you feel they are worthy of sharing please feel free use them.

I am looking forward to your Sand Flee video, apparently delivery over here is no more than 3 weeks so it could well be on my Christmas list…………. J

Thanks again for all your good work.

Kind regards.
Alan Daines

Thanks Alan for the patterns and the effort your wife and you put into the humanitarian aid projects. I am honored that you used a few of my patterns to help out in the way you did. I hope you don't mind me sharing your email. I see so much of the giving attitude from people that follow my blog that I just have to share it. We see so much bad on the news and there is so much good out there that never gets the attention it deserves.
