Four Styles of Desk Organizer Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download Below

I needed a desk organizer tray so that is today's project. I needed a place for my iPhone and business cards. One of the designs replaces the business card holder with a pen/pencil holder. I also included one without a business card or smartphone holder. You can see a diagram of all four designs below.

The smartphone slot is the cut that you may need to alter. I have a case on my iPhone so I made the slot larger. You may need to adjust for your phone.

The phone slot also has a hole for the power cable to come through. There needs to be enough room for the power cable to plug into the phone. I put rubber feet on the bottom of the organizer to get it higher. 

This is a two-layer design. To get a good glue-up of the layers you want to select boards that are relatively flat.

In this project, it is important that the lines be cut as straight as possible. A crooked cut will really show up in this project. Sand away any miscuts before you to the glue-up.

The picture below shows the rubber feet I used. These are self-stick feet that you can get at almost any hardware store.

The next image shows the four designs.

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
