Hero Dog Tag Scroll Saw Pattern. New 2018 Personalized Pet Ornament Patterns are Ready to Order.

There are less than 1.5 million men and women in the US military active forces. That is less than .5% of our population. These men and women spend months away from family and friends. They train hard for jobs that can take them in harm's way. The pay is not great and the hours are worse. They all volunteered to take on this responsibility. We owe each of them a debt of gratitude. 

They the front line of our liberty and our freedom. They are the protectors of our land. They are our sons, daughters, husbands, and wives. They are the best we have to offer. They are our heroes.

2018 Personalized Pet Ornament Patterns: $2 per name.

I have the 2018 Personalized Pet Ornament Patterns ready to order. There is no minimum order for the pet ornaments. I have one for your dog and cat.
They are $2 per name. 

This year's patterns are segmentation designs. You will cut the backer of the ornament with the name. The head will be cut in segments then the edges are contoured. The pieces are then glued on to the backer. All parts are cut from 1/4" thick wood.

There are a couple of small parts in these patterns. Use a zero clearance over the hole in the table to prevent the pieces from falling through and getting lost. I just cover the hole with blue painters tape.
You don't need too much contouring. Just round over the edges that touch another part. You can use a Dremel tool or just hand sand. 

You see in the photo that I used two species of wood for the cat head. To makes sure the pieces fit I stack cut the head from both woods. Then you can mix and match the parts. This is especially helpful if you have more than one ornament to make.
You can use wood glue but I find it easier to use super glue with activator. I glue the segments together first then apply the entire head to the backer. I apply a spot of glue to each part so every part is glued to each other and the backer. This makes it very secure. The nose pieces are the least secure. Make sure you clamp the nose piece for a few minutes to it attaches well.
