Christmas Canes Scroll Saw Pattern.



This Christmas decoration is ~ten inches tall. I cut it from 1/2" thick soft maple. This is one of those projects that can be cut from any material you have handy. The thickness does not matter. You can paint it, stain it or leave it unfinished. 

My thought was that it is just larger enough to hang on the front door. You can easily use the PDF print driver to enlarge if you want it larger.  

Personalized Christmas Ornament Pattern Orders:


Orders have slowed down this week. I was finally able to get caught back up. I should be back on a two or three day turnaround if you need to order more or are ready to place your first order.

When I design the ornaments I always try to do one that is a novice level cutting. I will then design a couple that are more of an intermediate level. This year the ornament on the left is the basic novice level ornament. If you have been cutting for a few weeks you should be able to cut this ornament.

The middle ornament which I call "Bells" is definitely at the intermediate level. There are small interior cuts and the fretwork can get fragile. One tip for cutting the 1/8" thick fretwork is to stack cut the fretwork. Stack cutting thin wood makes it easier to control the cut.

The layered Nativity ornament. is a novice to intermediate level cut. If this is not your first rodeo on the scroll saw you will be able to cut this pattern. 

These ornament patterns, as well as the door wreath and pet ornaments, can be ordered below.

Oculus Go Stand-Alone Virtual Reality Headset. $199

Are you curious about virtual reality? I am a certified geek so I wanted to try out virtual reality. The Oculus Go was an easy and relatively inexpensive way to give it a try. This headset is stand alone. You do not need a computer to hook it to like the more expensive models. This will not give you the full six degrees of freedom that the Oculus Rift has but the thing works extremely well with the hand controller tracking.

I'll be honest and say that I mostly use it to play games but watching movies in this thing is crazy cool. You are put into a theatre with an iMax size screen. You can watch Netflix and Hulu. Would you want to watch it for hours? No, but watching a movie is doable. 

The content available is decent but not great. There are a few games that I consider really fun and many that are not up to speed. It is getting better all the time. It is still new enough that the software creators are still learning how to make a great game. There is one ping-pong game that is so real that I have to catch myself from trying to actually catch the ball with my non-paddle hand. It feels that real.

If you have a child or grandchild that you need to buy a Christmas gift for this won't break the bank and it will probably be passed around all night. 

  • Personal Viewing: The littlest, big screen. Crystal clear optics and state-of-the-art 3D graphics make your headset feel more like a personal theater.
  • Viewing with Friends: Watch with friends. Meet up in VR with friends and fans from around the world to catch live sports, concerts, or just your favorite TV show.
  • Portable & Easy to use: Ready when you are. Experience portable, all-in-one VR. That means no PC, phone, wires or hassles.
  • Controller: Effortless control. Whether it's navigating to your favorite shows or to a far-off land, the intuitive controller makes getting there a cinch.
  • Built-In Audio: Surrounded by sound. Spatial audio drivers are built right into the headset, providing dramatic, immersive sound without the need for bulky or tangled headphones. Oculus Go also features a 3.5 mm audio jack.
