Christmas Cross Scroll Saw Pattern.

I'm not one to paint wood very often but in this case I think it's called for. The oval is 7.25 X 10.5 inches. I would leave that unpainted using a light colored wood. Maple would be a good choice. Even poplar would be okay if you can find it that wide. I would definitely use a wood like poplar for the cross parts. Poplar paints well and you don't want to use a nice hardwood and cover it with paint.

My wife and I spent Friday and Saturday at the Kentucky speedway. We watched the ARCA race Friday night and the Nationwide race Saturday. The weather was perfect during the day and even better by race time after sunset. We were the guests of my wife's sister Kathy and her husband Steve. They allowed us to share their motor home during the day. My wife is a big NASCAR fan. Kathy and Steve are also very knowledgeable racing fans. I'm more of a casual fan but I still enjoy going to the races. Watching the race is fun but watching the people is even more interesting sometimes. It's pretty amazing how silly some people can look after a few beers.

I'm starting to receive lots of email asking about the Custom Christmas Ornament Patterns I do every year. I will be doing them this year. I'm working on the designs now. I hope to have them ready to go this week. As soon as they are ready I will post the link to place the orders.
