The Foal Scroll Saw Pattern.

<


 Download Below

This pattern comes in two sizes. The small one is about 9.5 inches long. The large one is close to 15 inches long.

Let me tell you upfront that the small one has some tiny interior cuts. I normally design my patterns so you can use a 1/16" drill bit for all the interior holes. That is just barely true with this pattern. Just drill carefully. There are only a couple interior cuts that are so small. 

It is difficult to take a picture of this project and show the detail. Here is a black and white image of the pattern.



I used a split base on this project. It is stronger than gluing the horses to the top of the base.  The two base boards are glued to the front and back of the horse cutout.


What do you think?


I have received the same request several times recently. I am hearing from many new to the hobby folks. They are asking for complete project videos. I have always been hesitant to do full project videos because they are painfully long and I can be painfully boring. 

I don't mind doing one but I would like to know if there is any interest in seeing a project from pattern to a complete project. This would just be the very basics. Adding too much detail would make the video too long for sure. I could speed many parts up in editing.

I would probably wait until after Christmas when there are always new people who got a scroll saw for Christmas. 

You don't need to respond to tell me the idea stinks. :) Just let me know if you would like to see the video.



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.

Personalized Pet Christmas Ornaments Ready to Order:


Sorry I have been so slow getting these Personalized Pet Christmas Ornament patterns ready. The order form is now live. The patterns are $2 per name with no minimum. The order form will take up to five names. If you need more than that I just fill out a separate form.

The ornaments include the year but you can cut that part of the pattern off if you prefer them without the year.

When you cut the veining on the ornaments you can add a touch of glue to the back after the vein is cut. This helps add strength back if needed. 

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