It is my extreme honor to introduce you to Marine Sergeants Kass and Kyle Stewart.

Kass, on the left will begin his second enlistment early next year. He is an instructor at the Marine detachment at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Mississippi. He is also a black belt MCMAP instructor and currently attending the Marine sergeant's school at Marine headquarters at Quantico, VA. In early summer he will attend drill instructor's school at Paris Island. S.C. and hopes to be a drill instructor upon completion of the school

Kyle on the right will begin his second enlistment next year. He is an Air Traffic controller assigned to the Marine detachmant near Camp LeJeune, N.C. and will be going to the MCAS on Okinawa later this year. Kyle is married and has a son three years old.

Ken and Barb Stewart are the parents of these fine soldiers. Ken is also a reader of my blog and a talented scroller. Ken has cut several of the Marine Sergeant plaques I published the patterns for some time back. As a celebration of both sons being promoted to sergeant Ken decided to cut these plaques for his sons. Ken normally uses white corian but the marine color is red. Ken found red corian but unfortunately the red has a different hardener which causes problems when cutting on the scroll saw. It changes the color of the corian at the cut. Luckily Ken found a guy with a high pressure water jet cutter. The water jet did not change the color but the corian exploded under the pressure. The guy suggested using aluminum and painting them red with auto paint. That's what you are looking at in the pictures above.

When Ken sent me the picture I knew I wanted to share it with all of you. If you have been with me very long you know how much respect I have for the men and women who serve out country. I also though the story behind what Ken went through to get them cut was interesting. I also knew all my female readers would enjoy seeing two handsome soldiers. :) You can thank me know ladies.

Creative Wooden Boxes from the Scroll Saw

My friend Carole Rothman has her new book on the shelves. The new book contains 29 creative boxes you can make on the scroll saw. In the two videos below Carole shows the process for making the Cup Cake Box from the book. The videos will give you a taste of what is included in the book. Carole has a background in teaching which translates into an easy to understand set of instructions for her projects. This book is sure to follow on the success of Carole's first book (Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw).
