You Make me Happy Scroll Saw Pattern.
"You make me happy" scroll saw fretwork. This pattern is probably best cut from 1/4" thick Baltic birch plywood. You could also just eliminate the frame and cut the heart from any thickness. 

A good point for me to make here is that for many of my patterns the thicknesses I recommend are not what you have to use. I just try to decide what thickness and material balances the look of the pattern. For instance I almost always recommend 1/2" thickness for bases. That's because I think 3/4" looks imbalanced for the small projects I design. If you enlarge the patterns then 3/4" might look right. Just use your judgement. 


One thing I very rarely do is take more than one day off from my blog. One rule of blogging is post as close to everyday as possible. I think I am going to make an exception this week. Every once in a while I just need to recharge. Unless I change my mind I plan to take the next two days off. 

For those of you who read my blog in the newsletter you could do me a favor and visit the online blog while I am taking a break. Numbers are important for me to keep the doors open so it would be great if you could visit the blog and maybe support my sponsores. There are several features on the online blog that don't show up in the newsletter so I think it's worth your time to check it out.
