Torus Art Scroll Saw Pattern.

 I find these three-dimensional illusions fascinating. This pattern has two tori colliding. The pattern is 10" X 8". There are two layers with the back layer painted black. This pattern is much easier to cut than might be expected. There are only 38 interior cuts and they are all fairly large. There are no weak spots to contend with. I was able to cut this pattern in well under an hour. 
A torus is created when a circle is rotated 360 degrees around an axis in three-dimensional space. You can also make one by blowing up you're floaty intertube. 

If you are interested in the math behind a torus then check out WolframMathWorld. It's always fun to learn something that you will never need for the rest of your life. That was a joke math teachers. Don't email me. :)

Five Mom Scroll Saw Patterns.

Mother's Day is not far away but these could be given on any or no occasion. There is also a set for MUM. That is for the UK, Australian, and New Zealand people. I remembered this time. :)

The patterns a 10.5" X 4". If you are new to the scroll saw, the interior letters may look intimidating. Consider using a #3 blade. If you are not comfortable making tight turns in small spaces then cut into the corner, back up the blade, and cut into the same corner from another angle. This will give you plenty of room to spin the blade and start the next cut.

I also have a video that teaches how to turn tight turns with the scroll saw. I call it the most important technique on the scroll saw because it is used on every cut. Once you master this technique cutting on the scroll saw becomes easy.

You may have already seen the video because I posted it back in 2019. If not I think it is worth 4:30 it takes to watch.
