Halloween Construction Set Scroll Saw Pattern.

Click to Enlarge
Download Below

You can think of this pattern as a Halloween construction set. You can use any of the parts individually or combine them to make a spooky scene. For a sense of scale, the tombstone is about thirteen inches tall. 

You could even make these into large yard art using the poster print feature of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. In the image below you see the standing witch enlarged to 400%. She would stand over 40 inches tall at 400%. You could use a jigsaw instead of your scroll saw if you wish to go very large. Just make sure you buy some extra paper and ink. 

Artistry in Wood Show. October 12 and 13. Roberts Centre. Wilmington Ohio. Hope to see you there.

The Artistry in Wood Show is just a little over a week away. I will be attending both days as a guest of Bear Woods and Grobet USA. I will be in their booth and look forward to seeing some of you at the show. 

If you live in the area or can make the trip I am sure you will enjoy this show. This is the 38th and final Artistry in Wood show. It is a spectacular event. There are artists from all over showing and selling their work. Here is a link to the 2018 Competition page. You will see some of the outstanding art that was on display last year. 2018 AIW Competition Gallery If you look close you will see that there was a beautiful scroll saw portrait included in the gallery. Yes, this is primarily a carvers show but they have tried to include more scroll saw work the last few years.

$10 million dollars! Woo Hoo!

I received this email today and of course, I want to share my newfound wealth. Just as soon as I collect my $10 million dollars I will have a giveaway. The grand prize will be $1 million to each of nine random subscribers. I know I am being selfish but I will keep $1 million for myself. 

Good Day,

I am Mr. David Ibe, I work with the International Standards on Auditing, I have seen
on records, that several times people has divert your funds into their own personal

Now I am writing to you in respect of the amount which I have been able to send to
you through our International United Nations accredited and approved Diplomat, who
has arrived Africa, I want you to know that the diplomat would deliver the funds
which I have packaged as a diplomatic compensation to you and the amount in the
consignment is Ten Million United State Dollars

I did not disclose the contents to the diplomat, but I told him that it is your
compensation from the Auditing Corporate Governance and Stewardship, Auditing and
Assurance Standards Board. I want you to know that these funds would help with your
financial status as I have seen in records that you have spent a lot trying to
receive these funds and I am not demanding so much from you but only 30% for my
stress and logistics.

I would like you to get back to me with your personal contact details, so that I can
give you the contact information's of the diplomat who has arrived Africa and has
been waiting to get your details so that he can proceed with the delivery to you.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. David Ibe
International Auditor,
Corporate Governance and Stewardship

Rules and Regulations:

Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns:

I am still making good progress on ornament patterns. I should be able to get caught up today. If you have orders in the queue, keep your eye on your email inbox.

The price is $1 per name with a 5 name minimum. I keep the price as low as possible
because I want everyone to have a chance to make these ornaments for family and friends.

You only pay after you have received the order and are 
100% satisfied with the patterns. Invoice included with
the pattern email. Pay by credit card(secure Paypal), check, or cash.

The patterns will be emailed to you after they are completed.
Please allow up to a week for delivery. 

You can use last names on the ornaments if you like but remember that the more letters the more
difficult they are to cut. Ten letters and up gets pretty small. If you need to you can enlarge the patterns by 10% to make the interior cuts larger. No special characters are supported. I can get a hyphen in there but it looks odd. It has to connect the two letters so it does not just fall out.

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