Very Merry Christmas Tree Scroll Saw Pattern.

One more Christmas pattern. I told myself that I was finished designing Christmas patterns for this year. Well, a funny thing happened on the way to dinner. My family decided we would take in some of the Christmas lights around town. That put me back in the spirit so I had to do at least one more Christmas pattern.

One house we stopped at is called the white Christmas house. They have been decorating for 25 years and they draw large crowds. It does not have the most lights I have ever seen but it is one of the most beautiful I have seen. Pictures don't do justice to just how beautiful this house is.

Tip: Don't do what I did.

If you look closely you will see that I messed up this cut pretty bad. I have changed the pattern now but I originally had a flat bottom on the tree. It now has a tab.

I was in a hurry and placed the pattern on the board as in the first example below. With this poor pattern placement, I had to cut the bottom of the tree with the scroll saw. Cutting with the scroll saw almost always creates a poor surface to glue to the base. The cut just won't be flat.
