Love my Cat Scroll Saw Pattern.

This cat portrait pattern comes in two sizes. The small pattern is 10" tall and the larger pattern is 12" tall. I know that is not much difference but some of the interior cuts on the small pattern are pretty small so I scaled it up just a little.


Factes sourced from 101 Amazing Facts About Cats

Cats are believed to be the only mammals who don’t taste sweetness.

Cats are nearsighted, but their peripheral vision and night vision are much better than that of humans.

Cats are supposed to have 18 toes (five toes on each front paw; four toes on each back paw).

Cats can jump up to six times their length.

Cats’ claws all curve downward, which means that they can’t climb down trees head-first. Instead, they have to back down the trunk.

Cats’ collarbones don’t connect to their other bones, as these bones are buried in their shoulder muscles.

have 230 bones, while humans only have 206.

Cats have an extra organ that allows them to taste scents on the air, which is why your cat stares at you with her mouth open from time to time.

Cats have whiskers on the backs of their front legs, as well.

Cats have nearly twice the amount of neurons in their cerebral cortex as dogs.

Cats have the largest eyes relative to their head size of any mammal.

Cats make very little noise when they walk around. The thick, soft pads on their paws allow them to sneak up on their prey — or you!

Cats’ rough tongues can lick a bone clean of any shred of meat.

Cats use their long tails to balance themselves when they’re jumping or walking along narrow ledges.

Cats use their whiskers to “feel” the world around them in an effort to determine which small spaces they can fit into. A cat’s whiskers are generally about the same width as its body. (This is why you should never, EVER cut their whiskers.)

Cats walk like camels and giraffes: They move both of their right feet first, then move both of their left feet. No other animals walk this way.

Male cats are more likely to be left-pawed, while female cats are more likely to be right-pawed.

Though cats can notice the fast movements of their prey, it often seems to them that slow-moving objects are actually stagnant.

Some cats are ambidextrous, but 40 percent are either left- or right-pawed.

Some cats can swim.

There are cats who have more than 18 toes. These extra-digit felines are referred to as being “polydactyl.”


Here are two subjects you don't see together every day. Scroll saw and cryptocurrency.

Nick Engle makes a marquetry box for his Dogecoin cryptocurrency. It is a funny concept but he does an excellent job on the box. He keeps it short and to the point. The video is just over seven minutes long. This is one of those no commentary videos. Just video demonstration with a music background.
