Tea Light Candle Tray Scroll Saw Pattern.




Download Below

This tea light candle tray is 4" X 7". I used 1/2" thick wood. I used a 1.5" Forstner bit to drill the recesses for the tea light candles. If you do not have a Forstner bit you can make the tray from two 1/4" boards. Cut the fretwork including the recesses with the scroll saw. Then glue the bottom board under the fretwork.

Scrollsaw Workshop Shop Tour:


I am not a big fan of shop tour videos. At least I am not a big fan of my shop tours. It makes me look too hard at the mess. I have received a few emails lately asking if I will show my shop. I did tidy up a little but it still needs lots of work. Kind of embarrassing.

I am in a two-car garage with enough tools for a three-car garage. It is cramped but I have figured out how to make it work for me. I actually spend way more time in my computer room than in my workshop.

The video is only about twelve minutes long.


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.
