String these three Jack-O-Lanterns together for a large Halloween door ornament. They will be approximately 30" long one tied together. Each Jack has a backer board that should be painted black. The Jacks can be painted orange. I like to use acrylics and dilute the orange paint to a wash so the grain of the wood shows through the paint.

This project is easy enough that you might want to get the kids or grandkids involved. They can paint of help cut depending on their age.

Should you buy a used scroll saw? 

Should you buy a used scroll saw? The answer to this question is Yes, No, and Maybe. No surprise to that answer. 

We are in a period of time when prices are high and the availability of some tools is low. Hopefully, prices will settle when/if we can get past all the labor issues. I don't think that is going to happen for several months
