This House is Full of Nuts Scroll Saw Pattern.

This house is full of nuts. 

Important Update on the MidWest Scroll Saw and Woodworking Trade Show:

I have not made a final decision yet but I may not be able to attend the show as planned. My closest friend is gravely ill. He was admitted to the hospital Friday and it has gone downhill from there. The doctors have said he may have only hours to live.

My friend and I worked closely together for more than 30 years. He has been a mentor and practically a second father to me. We both retired but still get together often for lunch and talk. I look forward to those get-togethers. 

It has been my experience that we only have a few very close friends in our entire life. I'm talking about friends that are loved as a family member. I am feeling quite a bit of grief just thinking about losing him. 

I need to be here for his family and for myself. I will make a final decision in the next 24 hours as to my plans. 

I was looking forward to getting together with my scroll saw community friends at the show. If I miss the event I hope you all have a wonderful time. 

Custom Signature Coins:

Order fulfillment is going better than expected. I am getting orders out very quickly. I send an email when your order is ready to ship. The email has the link for payment. Thanks to everyone who is placing orders. All orders on or before Sunday have been shipped or will be shipped today. 

The money from these orders is going to purchase a much better laser engraver. This investment will allow me to produce these coins and other future products quicker. Thanks to all of you who are placing orders.

These coins are $12 per sheet of 12 coins plus 3.50 shipping. The envelope can hold two sheets for a total of 24 coins. There are four styles of coin to choose from. They are shown on the order page.

Many of the projects you make will be handed down from generation to generation. Often they will be treasured one of a kind family heirlooms. You need to treat these projects like the treasures they are. 

These signature coins show exactly how proud of the work you are. For a little over a dollar, you can put your mark on the project that will let your great grandchildren know exactly who made the project for them. Simply use a 1" Forstner bit to drill a 1/8" deep hole and glue in the coin. 

Shipping inside the United States only. I have looked into shipping internationally but the cost is just too high.
