Music Staff Clock Scroll Saw Pattern. Fidget Spinner update. New contest open.
If your child or grand child take music lessons. This could be a nice gift for their teacher. The pattern book has two sizes. The small clock is just over nine inches long. The large clock is over fifteen inches.

When you but you clock movement make sure you get the one for the thickness of wood you use. In the pattern I call for 1/2" thick wood for the small clock and 3/4" for the large one. 

You can find all the sizes you need at Bear Woods at this link. While you are buying the movement make sure you pick out the correct hands. The lengths for the hands are specified in the pattern.

I used a blue print out of a circle as a backer so the movement does not show through the fretwork. The color circles are included in the pattern and are optional. If you use them I suggest high quality photo paper for better durability.

Small Fidget Spinner
I know many of you thought I had lost my marbles when I posted the pattern for the Fidget Spinner the other day. Remember when I told you they were hot. Well that video has almost 10,000 views in four days and the pattern has been downloaded more than any other this year. 

These views and downloads are not coming from scroll sawyers for the most part. They are coming from outsiders because the project is so popular right now. I was even contacted by a company out of China who wants me to do a video review of their $50 Fidget Spinner. They were willing to pay. 

I mentioned in the last post that I would design a small spinner. That is the one in the picture. I updated the pattern to include this spinner also. You can download it at this link .

This one is much easier to use and fits small hands better.

I have been getting email from those of you who have checked out Heritage Wood Specialties. It great to hear the positive feedback.  I have been using the heck out of their scroll saw planks. It is great to have nice wide boards to work with. They color match their planks so well that it's difficult to see the glue lines. I am hooked on these boards. If you have not visited them do yourself a favor and go these now.

I cal these mop sanders. They go by different names. I use these on almost every scroll saw project I make. Once you break them in they can be used even on delicate fretwork. I just hold my hand under the piece and run it under the mop to clear all the fuzzies. I would never be without one. I have mine mounted horizontal on my Sand-Flee but you can mount them is a drill press or hand drill. I like the 120 grit for most jobs.  

  • Eliminate tedious hand sanding on wood.
  • Use on moldings, curved pieces & textured surfaces.
  • 4" diameter coated aluminum oxide stars with 1/4" shank.
  • Rated at 3,200 RPM maximum.
  • Also available in 80 grit & 180 grit, each sold separately.
