Layered Jesus Cross Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download the Pattern Below

This small layered cross is five layers thick of 1/8" Baltic birch plywood. The base is cut from 1/4" Thick BB plywood.

For those of you who are new to the scroll saw let me give you a tip. Cutting very thin wood can be much more difficult than you might expect. The thin wood does not give the blade any resistance so it has a tendency to overcut. One technique to help add some resistance is to stack cut two boards at a time. 

Cut two boards of equal size. Wrap the two boards in tape to hold them together. Apply the pattern on top of the tape. Not only will find it easier to cut, but you will also cut two projects in the time of one.

Mandala Scroll Saw Pattern.


 
Click to Enlarge
Download the Pattern Below

I get a lot of requests for patterns. Many times the requested pattern is of a subject that I am not educated about. This is one of those times. If there are mistakes in this pattern or the information I present then it is from ignorance and not malice. 

The request was for a Mandala design. The request was from a person who looked at the design as art and also did not understand the symbolism from a cultural perspective. 

Man-da-la,  noun. A geometric figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism. Apparently, they are sometimes used to focus attention for meditation. The design is made up of symbols in a concentric shape. That is just about the extent of what I have read.

I did not start from scratch. I used a Mandala figure but I altered it somewhat to make it easier to cut on the scroll saw. However, you use this pattern I think the design is very pleasing to look at. It will also be a fun project to cut.

In the simulated images above I am showing the design cut from different species of wood and metallic paint. I think this design would look beautiful with gold spray paint of gold leaf.

I designed the pattern in two sizes. The smaller pattern is 8" in diameter and the larger pattern is 10.25" in diameter. This is one of those patterns that could be cut from any thickness of wood depending on how you intend to use it. With thicker wood, you could eliminate the backer board.

Please feel welcome to educate me if there are any mistakes in this text or the pattern.  

The following is an incredible video of Tibetan Monks creating a sand Mandala. It took them four days to complete and the finished art is beautiful. After four days of work, the Monks sweep up the sand as a symbol of the impermanence of existence. The video is under 3 minutes.

Valentine Teddy Bear Scroll Saw Pattern


 
Click to Enlarge
Download the Pattern Below

Each year after Christmas I see many new people show up on my blog. Most of them received a scroll saw as a gift and are looking for patterns and information. To those of you who are new, welcome. Here is the link to my free online pattern catalog. That is probably where you want to start. 

I know that when you are just getting started with the scroll saw it takes a while to build up the confidence to cut more difficult patterns. This Valentine Teddy Bear is an entry-level pattern. If you want to keep it even simpler you can eliminate the text in the heart.

The Teddy Bear is 7" tall and cut from 1/4" thick Baltic birch plywood. Of course, I painted the heart red to give it some pop.

Let's talk just for a minute about selecting patterns when you are just getting started with the scroll saw. Start out with easy patterns but don't forget to challenge yourself every once in a while. Pick a pattern that you feel might be a little above your current skill level. Often you will find that it is actually less of a challenge than you thought. 

When you finish the first few projects you may have a tendency to be too critical of how the projects turned out. Do me and yourself a favor and show the project to someone. The things that you are critical of will probably not even be noticed by the person you show it to. More than likely they will say "How in the world did you do that!"

After you check out the free patterns in the catalog them come back to the blog and look around. I have hundreds of videos that you can watch to get a better understanding of the hobby. We also have a Community Forum where you can ask other people around the world for advice.

If you like what you see then consider subscribing to my newsletter. I post a new pattern several days a week and they are delivered directly to your email inbox. The patterns are free and you can take as many as you like. I do take donations but they are totally optional.

Let me welcome you one more time. This is a great hobby. If you love to make things and be creative you will enjoy the scroll saw. Feel free to email me but let me be honest and upfront. I cannot always answer all of the emails. I will try my best and if I see the same questions over and over I can address it in general on the blog.
