Another Initial Font Scroll Saw Pattern.

Click Image to Enlarge.

These Initials are about 6.5" tall. Every letter has a matching outline frame cut from one or more pieces.

What makes these initials interesting is the word cut in each letter. Every letter has a complimentary word that starts with that letter. A=Amazing, F=Fabulous etc...

This is a project that would be fine cut from an inexpensive material like MDF and painted. 

In the example in the picture above, the name Kellie would be approximately 35 inches long.

Initial Door Decoration Scroll Saw Patterns.

Download Below

I have had several requests to do more of the initial patterns. They always get more downloads than almost any other pattern. Most requests were for a fancier font. I tend to stay away from complex fonts because some letters by themselves are difficult to recognize. Most of these look reasonably like the letter they represent but a few are a little iffy. I'll let you decide.

All of these patterns are designed to print on a single page. If you want a larger initial plaque you can use the Poster Print feature of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The pattern will then be enlarged over more than one sheet. You will have to cut and tape the pattern together.

You can also take this digital pattern to a print shop and let them enlarge on to large size paper. Because of copyright issues, the print shop may not want to print the document for you. I put permission on the bottom of the title page so you can show that to them. That will usually let them print the document. You probably don't want to print the complete PDF. It is 56 pages and will cost a fortune to print oversize. Just tell them the pages you need.

Do you need a Table Saw for you Scroll Saw Hobby? No room? Limited budget? You have options.

There are many folks who start their woodworking journey with a scroll saw. The good news is that the scroll saw is so versatile that many projects can be completed with the scroll saw alone. If scrolling is your primary interest then you don't need too many extra tools to get the job done. I said "need" not "want".

Every extra tool you add to your shop will give you more options. If you have an 8" X 12" X 1/4" board and you only need a 4" X 4" X 1/4" board, you can cut it down on the scroll saw but it will be sloppy and leave uneven edges. A table saw will give you precise straight cuts and get the job done much faster. If you have large boards then the scroll saw is not very useful for cutting them down. A table saw is much better suited for large boards.

To a very limited degree, you can also use the table saw to change the thickness of the board. This is only a safe cut if you know the proper technique so read your manual first. Even better, take a class. If you set the table saw blade to its maximum height, you can resaw twice the height of that distance. You run the board through the blade then flip it and run the other edge. Watch the video below to see one safe technique to resaw on the table saw.
