US Half Dollar Scroll Saw Pattern.

This pattern is what I call a challenge piece. You cut this project for the challenge. I think it will look pretty cool hanging on the wall of an office. It is thirteen inches in diameter. I would recommend Baltic birch plywood for this project.  

As you can imagine, I spend quite a bit of time thinking about new subjects for scroll saw patterns. I was cleaning out my office desk drawer and came across a nice shiny US half dollar.

I may go back and do the front to have both.

 I have redesigned the male and female scroller for a more polished look. You will have the four designs above to choose from.
