Compound Cut Jesus Lives Scroll Saw Pattern.

I get many emails from people showing me projects they have made. Jeff Moses sent me a picture of a compound cut "Jesus Lives" project that he had cut. He had designed the pattern using Microsoft Word. I liked it a lot and I asked Jeff if I could redo the design and post it for you guys. He was happy to share it with everyone. Thanks Jeff.

This is one of those projects that will make your friends look twice. Most people have never seen these compound cut sculptures and they are real attention grabbers. They are also pretty easy to cut.  

The project requires a 1.5" X 1.5" X 8" board. I used Basswood because it's so easy to cut but any wood will be fine. 

I included complete cutting instructions in the pattern book. This project does not require any complicated jigs or clamps. It can be cut freehand.

Still, time to place your order for custom 3D name patterns. $5 per/name
I have been getting the orders out pretty quickly. I think I have less than 10 orders left to complete. Get your orders in and I'll get them to you as soon as possible. Thanks for all the orders.  

You only pay after you have received the patterns. 
There will be a link in the email to pay online or you can send 
cash or check to the included address.
The pattern book includes cutting instructions.

North Eastern Ohio Scroll Saw & Woodworking Expo:

The NEOS Scroll Saw Expo is just days away. Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th 2018. The Expo will be held at the Quirk Cultural Center 1201 Grant Ave. Cuyahoga Falls Ohio.

Guys this is a call to action. NEOS is putting great effort into making this a show that will grow over the years and be a great meetup for our community. There are not many shows in the US any longer and we need to support the ones we have. If you are able to travel to the show it will be very much appreciated.

This is not going to be a large show but we are going to have fun. The vendor list is not very large but with your support, it will grow in years to come. They have some excellent classes lined up with great instructors. Check those out at the link above.

I will be there and happy to meet and talk shop with anyone who wants to sit and chat. Bring your questions, comments, and suggestions for me. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. If I don't have an answer I'm sure someone there will.
