The music for Amazing Grace was published in 1779. The words were written in 1772 by the poet John Newton. The message of Amazing Grace is that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God.

Amazing Grace is one of the most recognizable songs in the English-speaking world. The song has been professionally recorded over 7,000 times. The song has been performed at millions of memorable events and is associated with many cherished memories. 

The pattern comes in two sizes. The small pattern is 10.25" wide and the large pattern is just over 13" wide.

Stack Cutting Techniques:

One scroll saw technique that many new scrollers put off is learning to stack cut.  That's okay because stack cutting is not essential. It is just very handy when you need to produce more than one of the same piece. 

Stack cutting is simply stacking two boards together and applying the pattern on top. When you cut the pattern you will have a duplicate from each board. Depending on the thickness of the board you can stack cut two or more parts at a time.

Even when you only need one of the projects you are cutting, stack cutting may be useful. If the project has four wheels then you can stack cut all four of them at the same time.

When you stack the boards together you need a method to keep the boards together as you make the cuts. In the photos below I show three methods to assemble the stack. There are other methods not shown below so use whatever method you find handy.

I will show you the brad nail, tape, and hot glue methods.
