Reindeer Family Christmas Stocking Hanger Scroll Saw Pattern.

Make one for the entire family. I used one inch thick hardwoods to make them as heavy as possible. If the stocking is too heavy you can use something like removable adhesive putty or two sided tape to help hold them in place.

Try to find a decorative screw hook instead of the plain screw hooks for a better look.

Initial Ornaments

This pattern book has 26 initial ornaments.

I wanted to let everyone know I will be trying to get caught back up on email the next few days. I spent most of last week working down in Tennessee and Georgia. Lots of driving and by the time I got back to the hotel at night I was pretty wiped out. I had good intentions of keeping up with the email but those hotel beds knocked me out and I got next to nothing done.

Love is a Four Legged Word Scroll Saw pattern.

My schedule is not going to permit me to work too much on the blog this week. We are swamped at work so I'm going to be slow responding to email and other blog activities. Please be patient if you have not heard from me. I'll get back on top of things this weekend. Earning a living keeps getting in the way of all my fun. :)

Christ the Savior is born Scroll Saw Pattern.

The pattern is 10" X 7.5". Cut the scene from 3/4" thick wood and use a 1/4" thick backer board.

The video below is for those who are following my experiences with the x-carve CNC machine.
Here is a picture of the project I carved on the x-carve tonight. It is my wooden penny scroll saw pattern modified for the x-carve.
One of my goals for the x-carve from Inventables is to try to make my patterns available to the CNC community. My first attempts at this will be to upload them to the Easel software on the Inventables site. Soon I will be doing a video tutorial on how to convert my patterns to other formats for different CNC machines.

One thing I am finding is just how versatile the scroll saw is. Some of the cuts we take for granite are very difficult on a CNC machine. Cutting a very intricate interior cut on a scroll saw is just a matter of selecting a small blade. You may have to be a bit more careful but the cut can be made.

I'm finding that milling very intricate cuts on the CNC to be problematic. If you need a very small bit the depth of cut is more limited than on a scroll saw. A 1/32" endmill bit is much more delicate than even the smallest scroll saw blade. Trying to mill through more than 1/4" in depth is something I have not been able to do yet.

In the video I have modified my wooden penny scroll saw pattern and carved it on my x-carve. I use a rough pass tool path with a 1/16" end mill then a detail pass tool path with the 1/32" end mill. There was a very small area that even the 1/32" end mill could not carve.

If you have an x-carve you can load the wooden penny file at this link.
