United States Marine Plaque with Flag.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
Continuing the series on United States military plaques. This one is for the Marine in your life. I had an email suggesting that I turn the flag picture around so it displays the stars on the top left. I also changed the Army and Navy patterns from the last two days if you want to download those again.

Video Tip:

If you are just getting started and don't yet have a drill press this tip may be helpful. If you need to drill an interior hole in fine fretwork it is important that the hole be 90 degrees to the surface. If it's not you can drill into the next interior area and have blowout. When you have dozens of holes to drill it's likely you will get some not square. This quick video shows a solution.

This jig will require access to a drill press to create the jig. If you can not get access to a drill press then use this 3d print pattern at this link. You can then visit your local library and use their 3d printer to print the guide. It will only take about 20 minutes to print.

History:

The A. H. Pomeroy Catalog was published in the late 1800's. They sold several items but one of their main products was the scroll saw. These were treadle powered machines. They also had scroll saw patterns, clock movements and wood. Mr. Pomeroy ran his store in Hartford CT. for many years. He passed away in 1926.  

These pieces of history are difficult to come by now. They occasionally come up for sale on Ebay and can range in price from a few dollars to well over $100.  

I have been keeping my eyes open for a copy for a few years but never seem to be at the right place at the right time. There is currently a copy on Ebay but it is over priced so I passed. If anyone has a copy of this catalog for a reasonable price let me know and maybe we can make a deal.
