Aerobics Instructor Trophy. A what the heck is it video.
This trophy pattern for an aerobics instructor is nearly 9" tall.

These occupation type of patterns get more downloads than you might expect. They obviously won't be of interest to everyone but for some they are well received. Last week I posted the brick layer pattern and had several emails from readers who had a person in mind for the pattern.

Do you have someone who does a service for you that you would like to thank with a gift? Shoot me an email and I'll collect the ones with the most interest and make a pattern.  If your request is for a professional under arm sniffer(Yes that's a real job), you probably won't make the cut. Try to keep it a little more of a common profession.


Video: Need your help with a solution to a problem.

This is a gadget I have been working on lately.  I'll give you a hint. It has an LED display and it attaches to the scroll saw. If you want to know more than that you will have to watch the video. The video is just a little over four minutes long. For those of you who like to work on solutions to problems I ask for input on the design of the gadget in the video. Let me know if you have any good answers to the question. I'll give more details about the project once/if I have it further along.


Announcement: The Atlanta Woodworking Show.

I will be attending The Woodworking Show in Atlanta Ga. on March 31 - April 2. I will be a guest of the Gwinnett Woodworkers Associations. If you plan to attend the show please stop by and say hi. I should be in their booth for most of the show times. I may do a little walking around so don't hesitate to stop me and chat. 

The show will be held at the Cobb Galleria Center. It is my understanding that it is a beautiful place to have an event. The show has lots of exhibitors showing there wares. I think it should be a fun weekend so you might as well schedule a trip.

I want to thank the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association for hosting me. I will also be attending the Gwinnett Woodworkers Scroll Saw SIG meeting April 3. I'll probably do a short presentation but I mostly just want to meet everyone and talk shop.

If you are a member or want to become a member show up and check their wonderful group out. They meet at the Peachtree Woodworking supply store at 6684 Jimmy Carter Blvd, Suite 100, Norcross, GA 30071 (770) 458-5539. I think they meet the first Monday of every month. Don't hold me to that. Just visit their web page for details. Hope to see you there.

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.
