Deer Mount Scroll Saw Pattern.

Important, please read: This pattern was not originally designed by me. It is a laser pattern that was made freely available. I modified it to be used on the scroll saw. I do not have permission for you to sell the finished project made from this pattern. It was made available for personal use. Please respect the original designer and not sell the project.

After I modified this pattern to be cut from 1/8" thick Baltic birch plywood, I used one of my lasers to do the test cut. That is why you see the burnt edges. This pattern can be easily edited for use on your laser. 

This will not be a difficult pattern to cut on the scroll saw. It can be made even easier by stack cutting two at a time. 1/4" is easier to cut than 1/8".

One note about this project is that the only glue I used is on the two parts of the shield and I glued the neck to the shield. All the rest of the pieces are just slid together. You can use glue but if your joints are tight enough and can skip the glue.

I added slots and tabs on the back of the neck and the shield for a better glue joint. 

One funny thing about the project is my city boy ignorance. I could not decide if the two forward-facing antlers should go forward or backward. The original did not show the completed project. I looked at a few real dear antlers and finally flipped them to face forward. I think that's correct. 🤔

Wood Burning Deluxe Starter Kit

One creative tool that goes very well with the scroll saw is a nice wood-burning tool. Many scroll saw projects can be taken to a new level utilizing pyrography. The cheap wood burners that you get for under $50 at craft stores are difficult to use because you can't control the temperature.

The Colwood units sold by Bear Woods are fantastic. I have owned one for a few years and enjoy it a lot. Temperature control makes all the difference in the world. With the correct temp and wood combination, it feels like drawing with an inkpen.

Get started burning with Colwood's original unit and top seller. This time-tested tabletop design features a lighted on/off switch, a terminal barrier for strong connections but easy cord changes, and a handpiece clip on the top. This deluxe kit includes a replacable tip handpiece, tip puller cleaning cloth, honing paper, tip case, and the standard tip package: 1/4" skew (B), writing tip (C), 3/16" small round (D), 1/8" tight round (J), 3/16" shader (S), 5/32" small point (K), micro writing (MC), 3/32" micro rounded heel (MR), and 1/8" small calligraphy (C1).

This pack includes:
WB-DETAILER - The Detailer
WB-21 - Deluxe Tip Package
WB-03 - EZ Tip Puller
WB-02 - Replaceable Tip Handpiece
WB-04 - Cleaning Cloth
WB-05 - Honing Paper
