The Rose and Butterfly Scroll Saw Pattern.


Click to Enlarge
Download the Pattern Below


This Rose and Butterfly wall hanging is 9.75" tall and 8" wide. It is cut from 1/4" thick wood. You can stain or paint the backer boards or just leave it natural. 

Parts of this project will be fragile until it is glued to the backer board. This is especially true if you use hardwood. Baltic birch plywood will be much stronger. 

The Way Wood Works Video by Nick Engler:

Wood is a material we all use every day. We are almost always surrounded by products made from wood. As woodworkers, it can be beneficial to understand the characteristics of the wood we plan to use. That is where this video comes in handy.

Nick Engler has put together a video that I think is excellent. He goes into just enough detail to make the subject easy to understand but not so long as to get overwhelming. 

If you wish to get overwhelmed, then Nick links to a free book titled "Wood Handbook: Wood as an engineering material.". The book is over 500 pages and filled with knowledge that is over my head but still interesting. It is a free download as a pdf file. You do have to provide your email address. They provide their privacy policy at the top of the link page.

Here is the video description from Nick:

"If you are a novice woodworker, this is stuff you absolutely need to know before you cut another board. If you’re a master craftsman, you know it well enough to understand that a quick review never hurts. And if you’re somewhere in between, this may fill in some important gaps. What I present here is the very foundation of wood technology; the way wood works as a construction material and the basic concepts you must keep in mind to get it to work for you."

OMTech Upgraded 55W CO2 Laser Engraver Cutter with 16 x 24 Inch Work Table, Laser Engraving CNC Machine with Ruida Digital LCD Real-Time Data, LightBurn Software for Windows, Mac OS, Linux


I own one of these lasers. I have found it to be above average quality for the low price. This is just about half of what you would pay for one of the US laser brands. This laser has a nice large bed. It will cut 1/4" thick Baltic birch plywood and more. 

Just understand that all lasers come with a fairly large learning curve. This laser uses Lightburn and the front-end software. I love Lightburn but it is packed with features and they take time to learn. Bdfore you purchase a laser cutter/engraver you need to do your homework. There are hundreds of videos on Youtube. 

Price:$2,599.99
  • FOR HOME AND BUSINESS: Our 55-watt laser tube offers high-resolution optics and the 16” x 24” cutting surface has over 2.5 square feet of working area to fit all your mid-size projects. Visible red dot pointer for better guidance & fast prep time.
  • UPGRADED DIGITAL DISPLAY: New Ruida digital controls with LCD display provide an intuitive user experience to perform final image edits and adjust laser operations. A transparent acrylic glass cover allows observation of the engraving process, helping you correct misplacements when necessary.
  • ADVANCED SAFETY FEATURES: The auto-shutdown button immediately stops laser operations for user safety. The built-in air compression ventilator and air-assisted laser head ensure superior ventilation through an aluminum foil vent piping exit.
  • LIGHTBURN SOFTWARE INCLUDED: LightBurn Software works with Win 7, 8, 10, Mac OSX(10.11 or higher, 64bit only), and Linux systems, giving you complete control over all OMTech CO2 Laser Engravers and most other DSP controlled laser machines. A license will be automatically sent in your order receipt email.
  • COMPLETE CAPABILITY: Engraving Speed: 0-500 mm/s. Cutting Speed: 0-80 mm/s. Adjustable resolution up to 4500 dpi. The user manual and customer service support helps ease the installation and troubleshooting process.
