Scroll Saw Word Necklace. Video Review and a Secret Word Giveaway!


Make these beautiful word necklaces with your scroll saw. If you are planning to sell the earrings I published the other day you might as well add these word necklaces to your product line. There are five words in this set and I'll do more in other sets later if the demand is there. To the left is the entire set.

You can play around with the size of the patterns to your preference. I would not make them thicker than 1/8" or they start to look clunky.

You can purchase the chain you like from Amazon at this link . Also pick up some jump rings to assemble the necklace.

Secret Word Giveaway:
In this video there will be a secret word flashed on the screen. Remember the word for a special giveaway detailed below.

Video review. This is a must watch if you want to order scroll saw ready boards online.
You have bought a scroll saw and now you need something to cut. Where can you get reliable boards in the thickness you need. The big box stores have a very limited supply if at all. You are lucky if you have a local mill that sells in thin thicknesses. You have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy the machinery to mill your own so what do you do? You buy online.

I am very excited to publish this video. It is something I have tried to accomplish for a few years. I have looked for an online source of scroll saw ready boards that I could get behind and recommend to my readers. I think I have found that source. You have seen the adverts I have posted for a few weeks here on the blog. Heritage Wood Specialties. I am convinced they are a very good source of scroll saw ready boards and I wanted to do a video to show what they can do.

This is a detailed video of a sample pack they sent me to review. I go into detail of what I received and talk about why I reached out to them and made a deal. I also explain the deal I made with them so you can make your decision on my intentions. 

If you are reading this in the email newsletter you may not see the video. Click this link to watch it in your browser.

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.
