Happy Mother's Day Candle Dish Scroll Saw Pattern.

Pattern Download Button Below

If you know a mother who loves candles then add this Happy Mother's Day candle dish for a nice personal touch. I kept the pattern basic. There is not much ornamentation because the candle is the star. 

The dish will hold up to a four-inch candle. The pattern requires a relief cut for the center circle. A relief cut is simply a cut with the blade tilted to a small angle. You want to practice the relief cut in a scrap of the same wood used for the project and with the same blade. I used 1/2" thick wood and a #5 blade. My angle ended up ~ 4 degrees. Practice until you get about a 1/4" deep relief.

It's all there. Over 3,650 posts:

Since May of 2007, I have posted over 3,650 times on the blog. By the way, that is an average of a new post every 1.2 days for 12 years. 

All of those posts are still available but it can take days to navigate through all the blog pages. 

One feature that may come in handy is a web page I maintain that is simply a list of all the posts. The list shows the date, title of the post and some text from the post. The title of the post is a link to the blog that will show the complete post.

You can also visit the blog and use the search box in the left column to search the entire blog but sometimes this list is easier when you don't have a specific search term.

Remember that if you are reading the blog in the email newsletter that is is just a copy of the daily blog post. If you ever lose the email you can simply visit the blog to find out what you missed.

Be careful out there: Bad web sites selling patterns.
