Canada 150 Celebration Scroll Saw Patterns.
Canada is celebrating their 150th anniversary of confederation.  This pattern book has three patterns to commemorate this historic event. The citizens of Canada have every right to be proud of one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Canada is rated in most lists as one of the top five countries in the world to live.

Essentials like health care, cost of living, education, multiculturalism and more, frequently rate as some of the best in the world. I know from personal experience that the people of Canada are some of the most friendly people in the world. I get hundreds of email from Canadians every year. Even when they want to tell me I screwed something up they try to make sure I know it's not personal. 

Canada is also always there for the international community helping out in natural disasters and encouraging dialog in times of crisis.

Thank you Canada. Congratulation on 150.        
I know I will get email asking me to do patterns for other well deserving special occasions. I am happy to try. If you want to pass along information about such an event I will research it and see what I can do. No guarantees but I will look at them. Never hurts to ask. 

Contest: Win The Lifter from Papa's Workshop.

Frank, from Papa's Workshop is celebrating a milestone in sales of his fantastic product, The Lifter.
He contacted me today and said he would like to giveaway one of his devices to one lucky winner.

The lifter is a device sold for owners of the DeWalt DW-788 and Delta 40-690 scroll saw. It relieves one major inconvenience of these machines. If you own one you know that out of the box the upper arm will not stay up which makes changing blades difficult.

If you own one of these scroll saw and would like a chance to win The Lifter click below to enter. You will be able to enter once per day. Entries end 6/19/2017 at 11:59 PM Eastern time.

I use a company named Gleam to administer all of my contests. I have found them to be very sensitive to the privacy concerns of entrants. You will have to enter you name and email address to be eligible to win the contest. If you have any concerns please read Gleam's privacy policy.
