A unique ornament scroll saw pattern.

I had a request for a pattern the other day that I thought was a super idea. Luckily not everyone will need this pattern but for those who do I hope you enjoy it. The pattern is an ornament with the ASL(American Sign Language), shorthand sign for "I Love You". Of course it can be used as a Christmas Ornament but I left it pretty basic so it can be used any time as a gift.

For you laser cutters out there this might be a nice piece of jewelry if it were reduced in size. It might be a challenge on the scroll saw but with care I think you could reduce it and make it jewelry also. Download Button below.

First Look at Bigfoot Products Super Sander.
The Bigfoot Products Super Sander is a laser cut sanding disk.  What makes this sanding disk unique is that it has notches cut in the disk to allow you to see through the disk. This gives better control of your sanding. I have seen these disks before but never had an opportunity to try one out until now.

David over at Bigfoot products was kind enough to send me one to test. The Standard Kit comes with two double sided disks. One side has a course grit and the other a medium grit. The kit includes everything you need to make the disk ready to in stall in your drill press or hand drill. The Standard Kit sell for $24.95. Extra disks are available for replacement. David uses high quality sand paper so they should last a good while. You can use a rubber sandpaper cleaner to extend the life also. My only wish for this product is that David would make another larger disk. I could use a bit more room but that's not a show stopper because this one still works well.

This will probably not be a tool you will use every day in you scroll saw workshop but I think for the low price it does have it's uses. You can get more detail at

I have uploaded a video showing the disk in action. Take a look and see if this is something you can use in your shop.

Think Safety

Remember to keep the safety of yourself and others in your work shop in your thoughts at all times. Always wear eye and ear protection. Follow all the manufactures warnings that came with your power tools. If I demonstrate something on this web site that you don't feel is safe, don't do it. Your safety is your responsibility. Fingers are handy things, try to keep all of them.
