Jesus Cross

This cross will be fragile after it's cut. I wanted the letters to be open and that will make it pretty easy to break. If you decide to cut this pattern you will need to use extra care. I would not attempt to use an open grain wood like Red Oak. A better choice might be 1/2 inch Baltic birch ply. To add strength to the final piece you could mount it to a backer board.

Shark Clock by Sridhar Shankar.

One of the goals I had over three years ago when I started this blog was to help scrollers see how much fun it is to design their own patterns. I know for a fact that I have helped many people get started doing just that. Every once in a while one of my readers will share a pattern they designed with me and let me post it. This Shark clock is from Sridhar Shankar.

Sridhars eight year old son wanted him to make a shark clock. He had followed what I do for a while and knew he could do the same thing. Now his son has his clock and his dad had the fun of making a project from scratch.

Sridhar allowed me to modify the pattern just a little to make it easier to cut. His original design is below. Thanks Sridhar.

Rugbuddies by John Lewman of Toymaker Press.

The other day when I posted the free pattern book from Toymaker Press the downloads went through the roof. I can't always tell which pattens will get a lot of downloads but that one was a no brainer. What could be more fun than making toys?

I have another set of toy patterns from Cynthia and John. These are called Rugbuddies and are exclusively for my readers. When you open this pattern book you will be introduced to Drew Birdymore, John Candypig, Shark Sinatra and their friends. The creativity here is through the roof.

These toys can be made from standard construction grade 2 x 4's. The wheels and axles can be purchased from several places online if you don't have a local source. Wildwood Designs has a good selection.
