Basket Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download Below

This pattern book has two sizes for this basket pattern. The small basket is 6" wide and cut from 1/8" thick wood. The large Pattern is 12" wide and cut from 1/4" thick wood. The large basket is over 7" tall.  

This is another project where stack cutting will be very helpful. 

A really cool project:

Buy on Amazon

I received an email from David Wood today with a neat story. David's two oldest children wanted to start a business. He taught them how to use the scroll saw and they started their business selling ornaments. The business turned into a great bonding experience for the family.

David's daughter has artistic talent so she designed a set of children puzzles which they have had published in book form and are selling it on Amazon. The book has 20 puzzle patterns. All the money from the book sales goes toward the family college fund. 

If you have young children/grandchildren or sell puzzles at craft shows then this book looks fun. The bright colors and simple puzzles are sure to please the youngest puzzle solvers.

I absolutely love the idea that David and his family are working together to run this business. Just think of all the lessons these children are going to learn from this adventure. 

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.
