Owl Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

Owls have always been a popular collectors item. This one is only about ten inches wide but would make a nicer wall hanging if you enlarged it. 

The other day I posted a compound cut pattern with "Jesus Christ". I also started taking orders for custom compound cut name patterns. Ted Hughes saw the post and wanted to share one he made for his daughter. This one is so well done that I wanted to share it with all of you. Thanks Ted.

I am working on the orders for the name patterns and should be getting them out to everyone who place an order in the next couple days. Thanks for the orders.

Video Review of Hector Garcia's DeWalt Arm Lifter:

If you are an owner of the DeWalt DW788 scroll saw this product may be just what you are looking for. It is a new arm lifter for the DW788 that is simple to install and simple to use. That's a good combination. Simple is good.

Hector will be selling this accessory through Bear Woods. At the time I am posting this product is not on the site yet but it should be up anytime now.
