Happy Halloween Pattern

Summer is behind us here in the US. The temperature is cooling down and daylight is getting shorter. It's the time when many of you get back into your shops.  If you are looking for a project to kick off the holiday season here is a Halloween pattern for you to cut. I also have hundreds of free patterns in the free online catalog. Visit the blog and look for the catalog link in the left column.

I get a lot of email asking that I email an older pattern that has been lost. All of my patterns since May 1st 2007 are still available to download in the catalog. The catalog is divided into categories so you can usually find the pattern pretty easily.

While you are at the blog check out the Community forum. There are thousands of members and the participation rate is really good. You will meet some great people there and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.

Wooden Doggie Bank.

This wooden doggie bank is easy to make. There are only 3 interior cuts in the project. The roof is made using a butt joint so you don't even have to worry about the 45 degree cut. All the pieces are 1/4" thick except the 1/2" thick screw plates on the bottom of the bank and the base. The bank is a little over 5 inches tall X 3.5 inches wide X 5.5 inches long.

The bank is screwed to the base for easy removal when you fill up the bank.

No fancy fretwork here.


I made this project for me because I hate plastic grocery bags. I especially don't like to carry them in the house from the truck when I get home. If you pick up more than one bag in a hand everything soft tends to get smashed. I don't like squished bread.

My idea here is to spread the bags out a little and still be able to carry a few bags at a time.
If you only have 3 or four bags then you can just use the handle section. Over 4 bags you just slide in the extension. and you can carry 8 bags.

The BagHandle is small enough to fit in your glove box.

I'm going to experiment with different materials to see which will have the heaviest weight capacity. I made this one from MDF. The next one will be made from Baltic Birch plywood. I don't think hardwood will be the best option here because it will tend to break with the grain. My guess is that the Baltic Birch ply will be the best material.

Use discretion about how much weight you hang on the BagHandle. I can't guarantee how much weight it will hold.

This Mother and Son pattern is over ten inches tall. Use nice contrasting woods to bring out the details in the image. Take your time cutting the outside of both ovals. The quality of the outside cut will make or break this project.

Here is something a little spooky for your Halloween pleasure.

This skull and snake graphic was provided by vectorportal.com. I changed it up a bit to make it into a scary scroll saw pattern for Halloween.
