Jesus Puzzle or Jesus Wall Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is two projects in one. The small version is only 9 inches long and can be used as a spiritual table puzzle. The second version is 30" long and can be hung as wall art. 

There are no interior cuts for this project so it's simple and fast. For the large version, the widest piece is under 6" wide. You could get all the pieces from an 8" X 72" pine board. The backer board os 10.5" X 30" so that may require a panel. If you would like to paint the wall hanging version you could easily use MDF for all the pieces. I think this would look nice painted white.

Would this be of interest?

I could offer custom name wall art. The height of the letters would be 9.5" tall. This would be similar to my other custom patterns. I would make the pattern of the name you want then send the digital file to your email. These take me a bit more time to make so the cost would probably be $7.

If I am able to get into my shop tomorrow I will make an example so you can see what the process looks like.  

Product Review for Creators: Genovation CP24

This product review is outside of what we normally talk about on this blog but I know there are some of you who can use this product but may not know it exists. 

This is one of those pieces of technology that I will not live without. It is so helpful to me that I would buy another one immediately if this one failed. I literally use it several hours a day. What is it?

The Genovation CP24 is a keyboard extender that allows me to add short cuts and macros to each key. There are 24 keys with a depth of two giving you 48 actual keys. The keycaps are transparent allowing you to print your own symbols for each key. In the picture above you see the symbols I use for Corel Draw.

I use Corel Draw several hours a day and it is critical that I be very efficient. I design patterns every day and the only way that happens is to be fast. The Genovation CP24 helps me be fast. Mouse clicks are not efficient. My wrist already suffers from repetitive stress so I need to limit the use as much as possible. The Genovation CP24 gives my wrist a break. That helps with the pain and keeps me going.

The app that you use to program the CP24 is relatively easy to use. You select the key you wish to program then enter the keystrokes on the simulated keyboard. The program is then uploaded into the CP24 so you don't have anything else running in the background of your computer. 

If your job involves working on a computer and there are repetitive tasks then the CP24 may become your best friend. It is very powerful and its power can be extended with other software. There are product reviews on YouTube that you should check out if you have interest in this device.
