Angel Stand Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download Below

The pattern for this stand comes in two sizes. The small stand(pictured) will hold up to a 2.75" diameter object. The large stand will hold up to a 5" diameter object. 

I painted this project gold because I used Baltic birch plywood. Sometimes BB ply looks okay unfinished but in this case, it needed a finish.  nice hardwood might look better.

The small stand is cut from 1/4" thick wood and the larger pattern is for 1/2" thick wood.
The large stand is pretty big. It is nearly 11" wide. It might look good as a Christmas table centerpiece with flowers or a candle.

All the separate parts are assembled with slot and tab construction and glue. If you cut the slots and tabs for a tight fit you could skip the glue and make it a knockdown display.

This is not a paid ad. I just want to point out a deal that I saw from one of my favorite people in the scroll saw community. Judy Gale Roberts is the leading authority on intarsia. She is also the finest intarsia artist in the world and that is not just my opinion, it is a fact. Judy is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. In this difficult time I hope we will all support the folks who support our hobby. 

Many of us have free time on our hands right now. Learning intarsia could be a wonderful way to fill that time.

Here is an example of master level intarsia created by Judy and her staff.

Artis: Judy Gale Roberts.

What is intarsia? Intarsia is the process of cutting and shaping wood of different species to make art. The colors and shades of the image are created by using different species of wood. The grain pattern is also used to give an extra illusion of depth. Each piece is contoured by sanding to give depth and roundness to the project. Seldom, is stain or artificial colors used. 

Intarsia takes practice. You need to cut accurately. It takes time to develop the contouring skills required to give a sense of depth. The good news is that even beginner patters look great so you can start off easy and work your way up. Judy's web page has patterns for every level of artist. She also caries training material and supplies to get started in this incredible art. If you really become intrigued then you can sign up for one of her classes. Her studio is located in the beautiful hills of Tennessee. 

Intarsia for a great cause.

In the recent email I received from Judy there was this fantastic idea. Here is what was in the email.

Tom Becker wrote "I am thinking about asking all intarsia people to make up some of your nurse bears and send them to any nurse they know or just a local ER or Dr. office as a token of thanks for the great sacrifices they are making.”

Judy's reply:
We thought this was a great idea, here is a link to get a copy of the nurse bear. Free!
