Family Wall Sign Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is a two part pattern. The project is nearly seventeen inches long. It is best used in an arrangement of family photographs. They look nice painted black or natural wood.

Larger patterns like this have special challenges when you are cutting. If you normally cut sitting down you might find it easier to stand with a larger project. You may need to plan your cuts further in advance. On a small throat saw you may need special techniques to avoid hitting the wood at the back of the throat.

Long weekend so far. Sue Mey's new e-Magazine is out. Link below.

Sorry that I have not posted anything this weekend. As some of you know I work as a service tech for Xerox. I have been with the company over 35 years. It's been a great career but like any job it has it's challenges. We work a lot of overtime. This weekend has been especially brutal. I have over 20 hours of overtime since Friday night and I still have tonight to go. At one point this weekend I worked 24 hours on one hour of sleep. Funny, that use to be a lot easier when I was 30.

As you can imagine this puts a snag in my fun with the blog. It also means no email gets replied to. It also kills the creative energy to design a pattern.

I'm not really complaining because I have a lot of friends who need jobs so I'm lucky to have one. Actually I probably am complaining but I'm an old guy and that's what we do. 

The machines we work on generally do most of their running at night. The companies that own them spend thousands of dollars a month on service contracts. They depend on us to keep them running 24/7. Downtime is measured in thousands of dollars an hour.

While I was working last night I did a video walk around of the machine I was servicing. No reason for the video other than I was waiting for it to boot up. I receive a lot of email asking what I do for a living so I thought I would share the video. It's only a minute so it won't put you to sleep.

I had a few minutes before I try to go to bed so I designed a pattern that reflects what I hope to feel one of these days.
