Stickman Rodeo Scroll Saw Pattern.

The Stickmen are back at it again. This time they are on the Stickman Rodeo Circuit.

Jimmy "Dusty Butt" Calhoun

Jimmy has been a professional bull rider for two seasons. He has had every stick in his body broke at least once. Jimmy has never made an 8-second full ride. They don't call him Dusty Butt for nothing.

By the way, the bulls name is Stick Breaker. Stick is mean. How mean is he?  He is so mean that his cow chips have to be removed from his pin by a HAZMAT team. 

Tex "Slim" McCoy

Tex is not a real cowboy. He just sits on the fence and tells everyone his name is Tex. Tex has broken every bone in his body at least once. He falls off the fence a lot.

Lonnie "No Legs" Rogers

Lonnie is one of the best rodeo clowns to ever jump in a barrel. Cowboys love him. Lonnie has never been married. He did not have a mother, father or brothers, and sisters. He was simply made from an old whiskey barrel. Lonnie plans to retire after this season. The other cowboys are going to take Lonnie's barrel and make him a girlfriend as a retirement gift. Now that's a thoughtful gift.

Phillip "The King" Mountbatten III

Phillip was in the second line to be the King of Stickastania. Before he could take his rightful place on the thrown the people of Stickastania formed an uprising and threw him out of the country. His crime? The people found out that Phillip was cut with a laser. 

Phillip now works the circuit as a clown bullfighter. He hopes to one day return to Stickastania and convince the people that lasers are real woodworking. It will be a long hard fight. 

$3 PDF Catalog updated to Version 13:

The $3 PDF Catalog is simply a large PDF file with thumbnails of all of my patterns. You can browse the thumbnails easily to find a pattern you wish to cut. You then enter the name of the pattern in the downloader program to get it.  It is just a much simpler way to see all my patterns than using the free online catalog. The $3 PDF Catalog is completely optional. You do not need to buy this to be able to get my patterns. It is just an add-on to make it easier.

The $3 PDG Catalog update for Version 13-3/29/2018 is now available for download. If you have previously purchased this product then use the link at the bottom of the program to go to the update download page. 

Start the program and look for the update link.

If you do not use the Windows version you can check for the update from the Online search page you should have bookmarked.

Here is a video explaining the $3 PDF Catalog.

Heritage Wood Specialties:

Click Image to Enlarge

I was asked about the wood I have been using for my Stickman series. I get most of my wood from Heritage Wood Specialties. I get a package from them every month in exchange for advertising. The picture above is one of my orders. I typically get Walnut and Maple. Those are by far my favorite species to cut.

One of their products is named Scrollsaw Blanks. These are glued up panels but they do a good job color matching the blanks. They come in different sizes but I get the 12" X 16" in 1/4" and 1/2" thicknesses. As an example, the 12" X 16" X 1/4" panel of walnut is $14.57.  The same size maple is $10.14. These are decent prices for scroll saw ready boards. Their shipping prices are also within industry standards. If you do not have the tools to mill your own scroll saw ready boards then give these guys a try.

These guys are a small mill. Their shipping can be a tad slow sometimes but the quality of the wood has always been great for me. I picked them as an advertiser because many of you emailed me with kind words about their service. I get very few complaints from my readers who use their wood. 

Check out their website and give them a call if you have questions. While you are at it tell them I sent you. They will probably charge you extra because you know me. :)

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.
