Leaf Light Box Scroll Saw Pattern.

 This small night light is about six inches tall. It is all cut from 1/4" thick wood. It is assembled with slot and tab joints.

You will need a light kit. These are available at most craft stores. I like the kind in the picture below with the spring clamps. The pattern is designed for this style light kit. If you buy something different you may have to modify the bottom so it will fit.

The kit in the picture is under $10 for two light kits. They include an inline switch and six-foot cord.
These kits come with a clear light bulb. I like to use white bulbs. You can find them wherever light bulbs are sold.

Eagle Clock Scroll Saw Pattern.

This eagle clock features a blue sky background. It is cut from 1/4" thick Baltic birch plywood. I used a sky background for this clock but I also included a U.S. flag as an alternative. 
The clock uses a quartz clock movement. You need a movement for a 1/2" thick dial. Here is a link to what you need from Bear Woods. You will also need a set of 3-inch hands.

 The photo of the sky is included. Print it on high-quality photo paper. We will use spray adhesive to affix the photo to the backer board. Carefully center the photo on the backer board.
The photo is sized to leave a rim around the backer board for gluing on the clock face. I used super glue and spray fixative to glue on the face. I only glued around the rim.
