Memorial Day Salute Scroll Saw Pattern.

Next Monday is Memorial Day. We will be remembering those men and women who gave their lives serving our country. Please take a few minutes to honor the soldiers and their service. If you pray then please pray for the family and friends of the lost soldiers. While you are at it say a prayer for the safety of all the soldiers stationed around the world today.

Memorial Day is also a time to enjoy the freedoms these soldiers fought for. Some of you will watch a parade or have a picnic. Many of you will travel to visit family and friends. Others will just enjoy the day off from work. However to celebrate the day remember why you have that freedom. Be safe.

On Memorial Day the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raised to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation's battle heroes.

This pattern has both a male and a female soldier. They each stand over ten inches tall. They can be cut from 3/4" thick wood. 

How do you improve your skill with the scroll saw?

I don't care if you bought your first scroll saw today or if you have been scrolling for 30 plus years. We can all improve our craftsmanship. 

Like any skill, the scroll saw requires practice. The problem with practice is that you can practice poorly and get poor results. Practice needs two components. Knowledge and muscle memory training.
