2019 Washington Nationals World Series Champs Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download Below

This pattern is an eight-inch celebration plate for the Washington Nationals. It is two 1/4" layers with the back layer painted red. 

The 2019 World Series was something special for the fans of the Washington Nationals. The franchise won its first title in history. This was the 115 world series. In what has to be the most amazing stat I have heard in a long time, the road team won all seven games. That is the first time in series history that a home team did not win a game.

Game seven was an epic with two Cy Young winners facing off on the mound. The Houston Astros went up two runs through six innings. That's when the Nats went to work at the top of the 7th. The Nationals scored three runs in the top of the 7th and that was the game. Washington scored three more runs in the 8th and 9th to win the series 6-2.

The Nationals were an underdog story for sure. At the end of May, they were 19-31. Then they went to work and played their way into the playoffs. Once they made the playoffs they took advantage of every opportunity. That's what champions do. Congratulations to the Washington Nationals and their fans.

You also have to give a huge congratulations to the Houston Astros. They won 98 regular-season games for the best record in the league. They went all the way to game seven of the world series. That is one incredible season.  

Safety Check Time:

We had our first snowflakes of the season today. Winter is closing in fast here in the U.S. Outdoor activities are slowing down and many of you will be spending more time in your shop. That is a good time to do a safety check.

Tripping hazards, fire hazards, electrical hazards, chemical hazards are all something to check.
Make sure your power tools are set up correctly with appropriate guards in place. Dull blades are dangerous blades. 

Do you have small children or pets in your shop? If that is yes, then you have even more responsibility to keep the shop safe. Are power tools safely locked where small children can't accidentally start them up? Chemicals need to be in a locked cabinet. 

Every year I receive an email from a reader who loses their shop to fire. Unfortunately, that sometimes includes their house also. The two biggest culprits are electrical and chemical fires. Please check that oily rags are properly disposed of. Double-check all of your electrical connections. Are any of them showing heat damage? If it's discolored it is probably getting too hot. Check the ratings of the circuit and use appropriate electrical cords. Replace or repair immediate
