Stickman Hockey Scroll Saw Pattern.


Take to the ice with Stickman Hockey. That's right we have sticks swinging sticks.

Logan "Big Lumber" Yardley

Logan received his nickname from rival players who were often on the receiving end of a stick to the head. I'm not saying that Logan is a dirty player but he now has to take a bus to away games. He can't fly with the team because he is on the Terrorist Security Administrations(TSA) No -Fly list.  

Jean "Biscuit" Dubois

Jean has been the goalie for the Canadian National Hockey team for the last six seasons. No one has ever seen Jean's face because he never removes his goalie mask. There is rumor that Jean is actually famous Star Trek actor and Canadian  William Shatner.  When team officials were asked about the rumor they gave this statement. "Bill, er....I mean Jean, and his family would ask that you respect their personal and private life." When pushed for proof by a reporter, lasers were set to stun and the new conference was over.

 Top Feeder or Bottom Feeder? Video by William Young.

https://youtu.be/_ax30P2avmA
By William Young.

Back in 2016 I did a poll here on the blog. I ask if you were a top feeder or a bottom feeder.
Here were the results from back then.
As you can see, we had 758 people take the poll and nearly 75% answered they were a bottom feeder. 
For those of you who may not be familiar with the terms let me explain. No a bottom feeder is not a cat fish. Bottom feeding means that you release the blade from the bottom chuck and thread the blade up through the bottom of the board when you change to another interior hole. A top feeder does just the opposite.

In the video above Bill Young talks about being a top feeder and why he prefers that method. 

I have always been a predominantly bottom feeder. I will sometimes top feed if the board is large. A large board can be tricky to find the hole from the bottom. 

There are pros and cons for both methods but it boils down to preference. If you have always done it one way or the other then give the other method a try. I think that having both techniques in your quiver gives you the most flexibility. Practice both techniques. Larry Bird could shoot right handed and left handed. He did alright for himself.
