You could be five minutes from a project that almost every person in the country could use. We all brush our teeth. If you use toothpaste in the squeeze tube then you can use a squeezer. The squeezer makes it easy to get all the toothpaste out of the tube.

There are three different designs. The fourth picture above combines the key and the base.

After I had cut the base squeezer I considered adding a place for the toothbrush. It would be an easy addition so I'll let you add it if you like the idea.

You can cut the basic squeezer in about five minutes from wood you would probably just throw away. 

After you cut the slot that the tube goes through, make sure you sand the edges so they are rounded and won't cut the tube.

I am not absolutely sure that every toothpaste tube is the same size but I suspect they are close. You may want to measure the tube and the slot just to make sure.

Alex Fox very nice Christmas scroll saw pattern:

Alex Fox is a very talented scroll saw pattern designer. I subscribe to his YouTube channel and when this pattern video popped up, I loved it. It looks great just like it is and if you have strong painting skills the project would be even better. I think this could also look outstanding at a larger scale. 

Alex has an Etsy store where he sells his patterns. There are two versions of this pattern and they are both included for $9.50. 

When I first saw Alex's patterns I was impressed. He just keeps getting better and his current patterns are outstanding. He has a nice selection of different patterns from portrait style, layered, bowl, and compound.

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.
