Giving Thanks - Scroll Saw Challenge

Recommended Posts

Last month's Scroll Saw Challenge was a lot of fun.  Some really cool projects came about.  It was so much fun, I'd thought we'd try it again.  :)

This one will take a bit of creativity.  The theme this month is:

Giving Thanks

This is completely open to interpretation.  It could be a traditional Thanksgiving project.  Or maybe a gift of appreciation for someone.  A sentiment you want to express.  Post your pictures here.  It can be a finished project or a pattern you designed.  Get the creative juices flowing and have fun!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Well Dan. I'm sure it will not be the same date.... I think Canada had a Thanksgiving, last month.  In the "old world" country, it was probably last century!   :eye:  We are "new guys".   Kidding, I know what you mean and it would be interesting.

In Germany we have Erntedankfest, which gives thanks for the harvest.  It is no special holiday and is usually commemorated in churches, which are decorated with grains, breads, pumpkins, apples. etc.

Monti, that sounds like a great idea for an intarsia design.

I like this theme. While it seasonal (for some of us at least) it is also a great thing to remember year round. Giving thanks and being grateful are in many ways foundations of a happy life.

In Canada, Thanksgiving is always the second Monday in October.

Here is my submission. I got the idea from an image on Pinterest. 

I drew up my own vine and found words to use online. 

The backer is 8" square and made from reclaimed cedar fence panels stained Early American. The overlay is 1/8" Baltic birch ply.

I have an idea for a word art of "give thanks with a grateful heart" 

I came up with this, but not sure about it yet. I think the spacing is off or something, I can't quite put my finger on it. 

I thought I would post it as an idea for someone. Maybe another designer can do a better job with it.

Here's my crack at our Giving Thanks scroll saw challenge.  I made this word art project inspired by scripture.  From 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In all things, give thanks...”  Even outside of the Thanksgiving holiday, I think it’s a lovely reminder to be grateful for the things we have.

Here's a quick video of the project coming together.  It was a fun way to spend the afternoon.  :)  The pattern is available here.

Great job Travis! That is just the sort of word art I was hoping someone would come up with!

Also major bonus points for finding a spot that it hangs straight!

If this is open to projects made some time ago, I made this in 2014.  It is a Sheila Landry pattern.
