Rose Cross Scroll Saw Pattern.

This religious cross pattern is four layers. You can skip the backer board if you like that presentation better. I am showing the backer board painted red in the simulated picture. As always the thicknesses listed in the pattern are just suggestions. Use what you have available or appeals to you.

Pegas 21 Inch Scroll Saw Complete review/Overview:

I had the opportunity to get my hands on the Pegas 21" scroll saw that will be released here in the U.S. late February 2019. The video is a complete review of the features of the saw and my comments on those features. If you are in the market to upgrade from another saw or looking to buy a first saw then take a look at the video. It may help you with your decision.

Bear Woods is taking pre-orders for this saw. I want to make it clear that this is an unpaid video review. I will not receive compensation for the video or the sales of the saw by Bear Woods. I did not take compensation because I wanted to keep the review free of possible conflict of interest. I have not been told if I will keep the review saw or return it. This review is an honest review and my opinions are my own.

USB Thumb Drive Catalog Update:

I made great progress on getting the USB Catalogs ready to ship on Monday morning. I sent invoices to the people who were next up on the list. Many of you have already made payment and your order will ship today. I will ship the others who were sent invoices after I get their payments. Check your spam folder if you have not seen an invoice.

There are still several orders that have not been sent an invoice yet. I have enough drives to complete all of those orders and will get them completed today if at all possible. I will send those invoices when they are ready.

Several of you have asked when I will turn to order form back on. My plan right now is to turn it on midweek. I will post here on the blog when I start taking orders again. I am just trying to keep from getting overwhelmed and making mistakes. Thanks for your patience.

One piece of great news. The distributor who manufactures and ships my DVD's is named Kunaki. They have done a wonderful job handling my DVD sales. I contacted them and ask if they could possibly start doing the same service with the USB drives. This would allow the USB drives to be shipped to many more countries and speed up manufacturing and shipping. They said yes! It will take around eight months for them to be ready but that's great news for next years catalog.

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. 

$12 per sheet of 12 coins plus $3.50 shipping
Inlay with a 1" Forstner Bit.
The perfect way to sign your work.

DEWALT DWE6423K Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander, 5"

I own and love the DeWalt random orbit sander. I have several of the DeWalt power tools and find them well built and reliable.

  • 3.0 Amp motor spins the pad at 8,000 - 12,000 OPM
  • Shorter height minimizes the distance between user and work piece
  • Design reduces vibration and the rubber over-mold in critical areas reduces user fatigue
  • Dust-sealed switch for dust protection for longer switch life
  • Dust bag has one-hand locking system
