Tea Light Stand Scroll Saw Pattern.

Please only use battery operated tea light for safety.

This pattern book has eight different designs for the tea light stand pictured. If you just have a few minutes to get out in the shop then this pattern might be just the ticket. If you follow my designs you know that I tend to do easy patterns. There is a good reason for that. I have the attention span of a 3 month old puppy.

I used to design and build furniture in my shop. It would sometimes take weeks to finish a project. I almost quite woodworking because I could not stay focused on a project that long. I migrated to spending most of my time on the scroll saw because I could design a pattern and often finish the project that same night. That bias still comes out in most everything I do. I love to see those large cathedral clocks and read about how they took months to cut but that's just not my cup of tea.
    
The video below is another Gwinnett Woodworkers Association Scroll Saw Sig meeting. In this demonstration Hans shows basket making techniques on the scroll saw. Hans shows a few different types of baskets and how easy they are to make. I believe most of the patterns in the video are mine so if you are interested you can find them in my catalog.  As always Hans does a fantastic job. The video is long so get a cup of coffee and enjoy.

Cold War Veteran Scroll Saw Pattern.

Over the years I have designed many military inspired patterns. I have tried to be inclusive of as many of those who served as possible. I will never be able to recognize everyone who deserves our respect and appreciation. I received an email from JimmyP today asking if I could design a plaque for all the Cold Wat Veterans who served from 1945 until the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Cold War turned hot a few times during those years. Luckily the men and women of all the armed forces were ready and able to respond when our country called. Because of them freedom lives. Thanks JimmyP.

Heart Tray Jigsaw Puzzle.

If you have never cut puzzles before then consider using Flying Dutchman Superior Puzzle blades. It's important  not to leave a large kerf or the pieces won't fit snugly together. The Superior Puzzle Blades are the perfect solution for a good fit and they last longer than most brands. I buy all my blades from Mike over at http://www.mikesworkshop.com/.    

I have know Mike for several years. He provides an excellent product and very good service. I can highly recommend him as a source for blades.
