Bear Silhouette Art with Photo Background Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download Below

This 10" X 8" Bear Silhouette Art has a forest background photo(photo included). 

When I was growing up my mother was a semi-professional artist. She sold in a few galleries but she was always working on arts and crafts. I still remember one of the galleries. They had mostly animal and nature-themed art. The gallery was in Kentucky so there were many equine art pieces. 

I enjoyed those trips. For many years I thought I would one day open an art gallery. Like so many of our childhood dreams, that one faded away. 

My wife and I often vacation down in Tennessee near the Smokey mountains. The city of Gatlinburg is known for its many arts and crafts shops. There is one route where you can stop at an arts and crafts shop every mile or so. There are some incredible craftsmen and artists in that area. I have been in every shop several times but I always go back when we are down there.

There is no reason for this story other than these bears reminded me the mountain and animal arts I enjoyed on those trips.

Optionally, you can eliminate the forest photo and just have a two-layer art piece.

If you use the photo, glue it centered on the backer board. The photo is slightly smaller so there is a glue area to glue the two boards together.

I received an email from Stephen over at Bear Woods. They are surviving this pandemic pretty well and they truly appreciate your continued support and business. 

Talk about business, the Pegas Scroll Saw is selling like hotcakes. Stephen said they still have a few in stock but they won't last long at the current pace. He will get more but why wait?

Stephen continues to grow his product line. Every time I visit the site or speak with Stephen he has something new for me to see.

The fact that business is good excites me because I want the places that support our community to do well and continue to bring us cool tools and supplies. I know times are scary right now but when possible consider doing business with the businesses that support our hobby so well.

Delta Power Tools 40-694 20 In. Variable Speed Scroll Saw

I have no idea how Amazon set their prices. The Delta 40-694 is currently $332.79. What math genius comes up with a price like that. Yea, I know it is a computer but it's still weird. 

It may be a weird price but that is still a nice price for a good saw. If you have an entry-level saw and would like to move up this is a good first step. Trust me when I tell you that the ease of use of this saw blows the $100-$200 saws out of the water.
