Hanging Black Cat Scroll Saw Pattern.

How long can he hang on? Hang this little black cat on your refrigerator or on a shelf.  I used 1/4" thick MDF and painted it black. The dowel rods are 3.5 inches long.
Just a heads up. I am hundreds of emails behind right now. I have had so many things going on that I'm even further behind than normal. I'll work on them over the weekend but I won't get to them all. As always I'm sorry to those of you I miss.

Kitty Love Scroll Saw Pattern.

The basic graphics was designed by www.freepik.com. I modified it to make a more appealing scroll saw pattern. It's small and is a cute use of scrap wood.

Is it too early. Not for crafters.

It's August but it's not too early to get ready for the Holiday craft shows or just making presents. I will slowly start releasing holiday patterns. This Christmas plate was cut from a wooden craft plate you can buy at better craft stores. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby. You can order it online at this LINK to wooden plate at Hobby Lobby.

When I started this design I thought it was big enough for the plate but as you can see I made it too small. In the pattern pdf there are four sizes for you to choose from. These wooden 12" plates are consistent in outside diameter but the inner cutout varies from plate to plate. That's another reason I made it four different sizes.

The plates are only $7.99. If you enjoy this design and don't mind buying the plates let me know and I'll design some more designs like this one. They can come a little rough and might need some finish sanding to get them ready to scroll.

These could also be customized with a family name to make great gifts. Just a thought so let me know what you think and maybe I can do that also for a small fee.

I also have an idea that might work to make our own plates. It's easy with a lathe but maybe we can build them with our scroll saws and a router. I'll work on it as I get some time.

Busy with a toy box build.

Sorry for not posting the last couple days. I've been busy doing my uncle duties. Anytime one of the children in our family turn one I build them a toy box. Beth and Bryan's second child, Brylee has her first birthday party tomorrow.

I wanted to do a photo build like I did with the last toy box but I waited until the last minute to start this build. I built this box the last three nights after work. It's 4am Saturday morning and I just put the last touches on.  I used the color scheme from her bedroom. The ornamentation is pretty basic but I think it's enough. Especially since it's 4am. Did I tell you I'm tired.

One note about working tired. I used a piano hinge for the lid. It needed to be cut to length so I took it to my chop saw. I had my glasses on but didn't think about protecting the rest of my face. When the blade hit the metal hinge small bits of metal went flying. They hit my forehead and cheeks. No damage but it scared the you know what out of me. I was just tired and in a hurry. That's a very bad combination when working in the shop.

I know I promised to put up a pattern for the last toy box I built but it never got done. When I build this type of project I don't work from plans. I design on the fly. That makes it tough to go back and draw up the design. Sorry but I probably won't do it this time either.

Here are some pictures I thought I would share. I'll get back to my regular scroll saw posts this weekend.

A tribute to a readers dad.Charles Satterfield.

I was having an email conversation with Ginger Scally when she mentioned a saying her dad always said.  Her father passed away a couple years ago but his skills as a master carpenter were passed along to the three children. Ginger says she and her little sister can hold their own in the shop and their brother worked the trade for years with his dad. Ginger said "How many women do you know with a carpentry bench, scroll saw and drill press in her bedroom?  ;-)". I think she might be surprised by the answer to that question. Many of the finest scroll saw artists I know are women. I've seen scroll saws in the living room, bed room and kitchen. :) What's a little saw dust going to hurt?

When she mentioned the saying her dad use to say I thought it would make a fun scroll saw pattern. I probably did not do justice to the memory of Charles but if he is reading this from above I hope he has a smile on his face. Thanks Ginger for the quote and nice family story.

Parrot on a Perch Scroll Saw Pattern.

The graphic for this project came from www.vectorportal.com. It is distributed for personal or commercial use. I modified it into a scroll saw pattern. He stands just under ten inches tall.

We had some sad news for the hobby of scrolling this week. Creative Woodworking and Crafts magazine has stopped publication. I never had the opportunity to work with them but others who have always praised the publication. Sheila Landry of www.sheilalandrydesigns.com did an informative blog post about her feeling of the closing. If you have ever read CWWC magazine you might be interested in reading her post here
