Tea Light Angel Scroll Saw Pattern.


I highly recommend you use the battery powered tea light candles for all your projects. They are safe and cheap. Did I say they are safe. Candles just cause too many fires to be used in simple craft projects like this.

This angel stands about 8 inches tall. She can be cut quickly so you can make a few at a time for gifts. There is only one interior cut so this project is perfect for even a novice scroller. The angel is cut from 1/2" thick wood and the candle try is 1/4" thick. For all you crafty painters out there she would look nice with an angelic face painted on.

Are you ready for some football!!

AFC Team Footballs for all you gridiron fans. I'll do the NFC tomorrow.

These football signs are cut from contrasting woods. I think walnut is a good choice to the ball and maple for the backer board.

We are two weeks away from NFL football starting it's 2011/2012 regular season. That means I'll be busy Sunday and Monday night for a while. I love sports and NCAA basketball is my game but a close second is NFL football. Get out the nachos and cheese because football is just about to get rowdy !!

Guardian Angel Door Topper Scroll Saw Pattern.


My Guardian Angel
Dear Angel ever at my side,
how lovely you must be---
To leave your home in heaven,
to guard a child like me.
When I'm far away from home,
or maybe hard at play--
I know you will protect me,
from harm along the way.
Your beautiful and shining face,
I see not, though you're near.
The sweetness of your lovely voice,
I cannot really hear.
When I pray, you're praying too,
Your prayer is just for me.
But ,when I sleep you never do,
You're watching over me.

Albury-Wodonga Scroll Saw Weekend 2011

Every year after the Albury-Wodonga Scroll Saw weekend I get the pleasure of showing pictures of these fine scrollers. For those of you that have not followed my blog for long this group is in Australia. Australia seems to be a hot bed for woodworkers and they enjoy getting together.

I receive more email from Australia than any country outside the US and Canada. This year Jutta sent me a pdf file with all the pictures. It's a little large but if you want to see a lot of people with smiles on their faces download it and take a look. Jutta tells me they had their largest turn out so far.

I just want to take this chance to say hi to all you scrollers down under. I enjoy hearing form you all and have had a chance to get to know many of you through email. I hope before my scrolling days are over I get a chance to come down there and say hello in person.






The rest of the pictures can be enjoyed in this .pdf file.

Wooden Letter Opener.


Have you ever taken a week off work and had all kinds of plans to get things done. That was my goal last week. I wanted to build a few nice projects for the blog. I wanted to complete several more videos for the Scroll Saw School section. I wanted to clean my shop. I got zero done. You know What? That's exactly what I needed. Sometimes you just have to walk away from a hobby for a while.

Luckily I went to the Woodland Art Festival in Lexington this weekend and that always gets me excited again. A local scroll saw artist by the name of Mick Shambro was there. He does some really fine work. He also presents his work beautifully. He has a few nice patterns for sale on his website.

Another woodworking friend of mine was there with his wooden gear clocks. Keith Chambers designs and builds the most beautiful clocks I have seen. He was actually my inspiration to build out my shop and start the blog. He is one of the most dedicated craftsman I know.

There were many other fine artist there and the show was a lot of fun to attend. I always come away from these shows wanting to get back in my shop. Hopefully I can carry that motivation over to next week and actually get something done. :)
