Pope Francis Scroll Saw Portrait.

The original graphic for this pattern is from vectorportal.com. I modified it for cutting on the scroll saw.

Thank you to all who have ordered this years Custom Christmas ornaments. The response was great yesterday. The orders are flying in and crawling out.  I'm guessing there were about 5 days worth of orders today. I'll work as quickly as possible to get the patterns back out to everyone. Thanks for the orders.

Dovetail Joints on the Scroll Saw with Bob Brokaw.




Below is a nice video from the Gwinette Woodworkers scroll saw meeting. Bob Brokaw shows a technique to cut dovetail joints on the scroll saw. This technique has been around a while but I think Bob demonstrates it better than I have seen it in the past. This is another strong technique to put in your tool belt. Take a few minutes to check it out.

Switch Plate Surrounds Scroll Saw Pattern.

There are a few different random switch plate surrounds in this pattern book. Make sure you have the Adobe Reader print dialog set to "Actual Size" before you hit print. You may also want to measure your switch plate before you cut the pattern. Some covers vary in size slightly.

Christmas Themed Acrylic LED Display Scroll Saw Pattern.


Here is a fun project. The patter uses acrylic sheets and an battery powered LED puck light. Let me say that I took this idea from a CNC forumn and made my own pattern for the scroll saw. On the CNC version the pattern in the acrylic is just etched. In the scroll saw version we cut through the acrylic. If you wanted to simulate the CNC version you could etch the acrylic with a dremel too.

Another option would to be to use real glass cut in 5" X 5" sheets and use glass etching creme with stencils. I have a CNC machine which I used to make an etched version and it shows up a little better.

The reason the box is made from two pieces is because the slit is shorter on the bottom to give the acrylic a ledge to sit on. It is critical the slit in the top and bottom line up when you glue the pieces together.

If you cut the slit accurately enough the acrylic will fit snugly and can be replaced with different designs. I include 5 designs in the pattern book.

The green tint in the is because the acrylic I used did have a green tint. 

Don't let that put you off because the scroll saw version looks really good also. If you are good with pattern making these would make great personalized gifts.

Below is a picture of the 3 pack of puck lights I used for the project.
