Joy Christmas Tree Scroll Saw Pattern.

This Joy Christmas tree is ~11" tall. I designed it for 1/2" thick wood but you can use 3/4" if that is what you have on hand. Just adjust the hole in the base to fit the tree.

California Wild Fire Victim Relief:

The current wildfires in California are devastating for both people and animals. It breaks my heart to think about all the victims who are suffering right now. The loss of property is unimaginably large and the loss of life horrible and getting worse. The death toll is still rising and the missing are in the hundreds.

To all of my readers in California who have been impacted please know that we are all praying for your safety. I know this holiday season will be difficult but I hope you can find some source of comfort with family and friends. Take care of yourself.

The American Red Cross has set up evacuations centers for residents and their pets. They are accepting donations that can be targeted to go to the victims of the wildfires. You can donate at this link and specify where you want the donations to go. You don't have to donate a large amount to be helpful. Small donations add up. 

Amazon Sale on the Popular DeWalt DW-788 Scroll Saw:

This is an affiliate link. Your price stays the same and I get a few dollars. Thank you for the support.

If you are looking to upgrade your scroll saw this Christmas this sale may be a good opportunity for you to buy the DeWalt DW-788. Amazon has the DeWalt DW-788 priced at $429 right now. That is a good price and nearly $70 off their normal price.

 Amazon prices change all the time. They never give deadlines on price changes. It drives me crazy because I will mention a product and by the time you read it the price will have changed. At this minute the price is as stated.

The DeWalt is probably the most popular scroll saw ever sold. It might not be the best saw you can buy but it rates very high in my book. I still own a DeWalt along with my other saws and I still enjoy using it. 

If you are used to an entry level scroll saw you are going to be thrilled with the DeWalt when you move up. Easy up-front controls, low vibration, simple blade change are just a few of the reasons to consider this machine.
