Ball Drop Game Scroll Saw Pattern.


Play the Video

This Ball Drop Game is easy to make and a nice little desktop time killer. It is cut from plywood that you probably have in your scrap wood box. 

There is a link for the steel balls in the pattern book and below in this post. These 1/2" steel balls come in handy for all kinds of make projects. I keep a supply of them on hand. You get 40 for a little over $10.  





2007-2018 Scrollsaw Workshop Catalog DVD Now Available. $20

$20 plus shipping

For those of you who have been waiting for the update, it is now available to order.

For those of you who are new here are the details. 

Every year in January I compile all the scroll saw patterns that I have designed and put them on a DVD. The DVD includes every pattern from 2007-present. Currently, that is over 2,600 patterns.

Why should you buy the DVD? These are the same patterns that are in my free online catalog. You do not have to buy the DVD to have access to the patterns.

The DVD is produced because so many people asked for it. People want to have the patterns available locally. In some cases, they want the patterns for their club library. Others like the ease of searching the patterns on their local computer. Many people buy the DVD just to support what I do.

The #1 reason I have been told that the DVD catalog is needed is that they fear I will go offline and all the pattern will be gone forever. 

Whatever your reason I truly appreciate you purchasing the DVD. The sales from this product go a long way to support what I do here on the blog.
