The Deer Hunter Mini Clock.

This will make the hunters happy. It requires a 1 7/16" mini clock insert.

I'll have to be honest here and say that I grew up a city boy. My first experience with hunting came when I was almost 30. I spent a weekend squirrel hunting and the squirrels are still laughing. Luckily I came home without without additional holes in my body and i have not been back behind a gun since.

Two hunters were walking through the woods. one of them fell down and grabbed his chest like he was in great pain. His friend had a cell phone with him and called 911. He said, I need help, i think my friend is dead. She said calm down I can help! first, make sure your friend is actually dead. The operated waited, and then heard a gun shot. He came back on the phone and said, now what?

Tall Candle Holder Scroll Saw Pattern.

This candle holder stands almost 10 inches tall. It gets the candle up off the table making the candle stand out. It stands securely because of the three leg design minimizing the chance of tipping.

This project was made from maple for the legs and cherry for the shelf. I wanted the shelf to stand out from the legs and the cherry is still a little light but I know cherry darkens with age.

All the pieces are 1/2" thick, There are no interior cuts so it's accessible for those with pin end saws also.

This project looks simple but there are a couple things that add a bit of challenge. The curves of the legs and the circular shelf need to be cut very precisely. The eye will immediately pick out flaws in the curves. This will be good practice for cutting curves.

To cut effective circles you need to establish a pivot point with your strong hand and guide the wood with your weak hand. You will reestablish the pivot point as you go but you want a consistent and smooth turn rate.

Look at the figure below. T
