  2. These are the ornaments I made this year for my two daughters and my niece and nephew, also needed a gift my Lions Club. They were resized from patterns in the library made in cherry.
  3. I was looking through our past scroll saw challenges, looking for a new December challenge. I found it strange that even though we push Holiday Ornaments, with our Ornaments For Charity ebook and Personalized Ornament kits, we have never done an actual Ornament scroll saw challenge! So this month, let's show off those ornaments! Post a few pictures of your scrollsaw ornaments. It would be fun to see what you've made. Tell us a little bit about them while you're at it. We'd even love to see them on the tree! Happy Holidays! Let's have some fun!

    Ornaments For Charity is a project from the members of Scroll Saw Village. For the last 13 years, our designers have donated their talents by creating wonderful ornament patterns for the Holiday Season. It has become so popular, and so big, we had to split it into 2 books! Book 1 covers our first 10 years; 2010-2021. Our newest book, Book 2, covers 2021-2023. Between the two books, we have 171 pages with 525 Holiday ornament patterns! So be sure to download both books! This popular eBook was featured in the Holiday 2014 issue of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts (read the article here). Is it really free? Here's how it works. Download the eBook and take a look at what we have to offer. If you decide to keep it, all we ask is that you donate to your favorite charity. You get a ton of great ornament patterns, and you help those in need in return. Remember, this isn't about "buying" an eBook of patterns, it's about giving to a worthy cause. If you don't have a favorite charity, we have listed a number of national (and international) charities below that could use your help. Remember, the purpose is to raise money for those in need. So, please dig deep when donating. Please donate to one of these fine charities or a charity of your choice. Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which donates toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. By giving to Toys for Tots, you'll bring the magic of Christmas to children in need. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children (2.5 years to 18 years old) who have life-threatening medical conditions. It is a wonderful charity that brings a few moments of joy. Habitat For Humanity is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization devoted to building simple, decent, and affordable housing for those who would not otherwise be able to afford their own home. A donation to your local food bank will ensure that the hungry will be fed in your own community. Make a difference in your neighbor's life.

  6. This is a picture story that shows how to make micro drawers using a scroll saw. These would be good for ornaments, small boxes, or gnome and troll doors. Step1 I chose some Easter shapes of a rabbit and an egg. I scaled pictures to be about 0.75 inches wide. I printed them out and used Super 77 spray glue to attach them to the wood. Step 2 From here we need to drill holes for blade access. I tried to place the drill holes in a position that can easily cover them up. I chose the top of the egg and the eyes for the rabbit. Step 3 Now I just cut the outlines of the shapes. I chose #7 skip blade. This wood was standard construction 1.75"x1.75" lumber. 7 inches tall. I wanted to show how I will cut the middle of the drawer so it can be accessed. I marked the area I will cut out with green ink. I wanted to keep the front and back shape. Step 4 The next picture shows the access area cut off. The rabbit is easily shown with the middle section cut out. The egg is sideways in the clamp to hold it level. Step 5 The next step is to cut the core out for the drawer cavity. I wanted to angle the blade so that the core can be used for the bottom. A 10-degree angle seemed to be a good guess. This is to prevent the bottom of the drawer from falling through the bottom. On the bunny piece on the left of the image you can see the green ink that will be cut out. So, I also drilled a 10-degree hole for blade access. Step 6 Here, I show the core cut out for both the rabbit and egg. See the angle of the drawer's sides? The core's bottom slice will eventually be cut off and discarded. The middle slice will be used as the drawer bottom. Lastly, the top slice will also be discarded. The green ink shows what will be waste. The non-green slice (middle slice) is the drawer bottom. Step 7 Here, I show to use the clamp to hold the angled wood 90-degrees to the blade, or close to it. The second picture, notice the first bottom slice missing. The next cut we will save for the bottom of the drawer. Step 8 Here, I showed the saved middle slices. This will be glued back in place for the bottom of the drawers. Step 9 Now let's put the drawers back into the holders. In the rabbit drawer, you can still see the drawer bottom. The second picture shows the front view of them. Step 10 I was not very clever about drawer handles. I just put short screws in the drill access holes. Then it was time to remove the pattern paper. Conclusion I hope this picture story shows how to make micro drawers. This last picture shows a different application for a micro drawer. It is a thick slice of wood ( 2.25" thick) carved Bobcat with a face as a micro drawer. I should have kept the ears as part of the drawer like I did the rabbit, though. I hope this inspires new ideas and applications!
  7. I will be heading to Toronto at the end of the month for a family event. Perfect opportunity to get the Christmas gifts ready to take (instead of shipping). Toy car is Cherry with Maple bumpers - pattern from here. Tic Tac Toe is bb ply with maple covers. Original pattern from Al Baggetta. Added the box cover myself. Segmented snowman pattern from Steve Good. These are for my nieces & nephew so I asked them their favourite colours. Scarves are done in those. It was kinda surprising that 3 of the 4 liked the same colours. These are painted with craft paints. Buttons also painted, because I didn't have any small black ones. Everything is finished with Walrus Oil.
  8. A new batch of ornaments. 1/8" Baltic plywood, stack cut 5 layers, hand painted with glitter glue then three coats of shellac mix. FD#1 polar blades for all the cutting.
  9. These are for my nieces and nephews. Filled with polymer clay, which gets baked. Finished with one coat of tung oil.
  10. Hi All. For the last few years, I've been creating custom ornament business kits. It basically is a scroll saw business kit with everything you need to promote, create, and sell personalized Christmas ornaments. Everybody seemed to really like it, so I created another version with all new designs for 2022! I like to think of it as a mini scroll saw business-in-a-box. With this kit, you can create as many custom ornament patterns as you want. You can easily personalize them with someone's name or date. You can sell your custom ornaments to friends and family, online places like Etsy, or for craft fairs and church bizarres. You can also sell custom patterns to your fellow scrollers! Here's an overview of how the kit works: This year's Custom Ornament Kit is on sale for 50% off through Cyber Monday! So right now, you can pick it up for only $10, which is a screamin' deal! It's my way of saying Thank You for being a part of SSV and making it such a great place to be. I hope you find it useful. Happy Holidays, y'all!

  16. Just finished cutting these. Now for some sparkle paint. 1/8" BB, 8 layers (1" thick), #1 FD polar blades Can you tell which was the top and which was the bottom?
  17. Been busy on the scroll saw the last few days Made some Christmas ornaments inspired from a Steve Goode design, I changed the patterns a bit to get what I was looking for. I used walnut, ash, alder, and several different colors of polar to get the look I was going for. They were stack cut four at a time, each layer is about 1/4 inch and there are 7 layers in the round one and 6 layer in the other. Finished with WB semi-gloss poly. The size of the circular ornament is ~4 inches the other is a tad over 4” x 3-1/2. All the rings were stack cut 4 at a time on my scroll saw on my EX-21 using a Pegas super skip #6 blade. I really like the super skip blades for thicker material. I I cut two Sue Mey patterns. Both are natural poplar coloring and about 11/16 thick, finished with satin WB poly. They are about 11×7 inches in size.

  19. 2020 was a strange and disappointing year, for sure. But we're not going to lay down and take it. We're gunna salvage it with an awesome Ornament For Charity 2020 Edition eBook! Who's with me!? We're continuing our tradition here at Scroll Saw Village by publishing our annual e-Book full of Christmas ornaments. This popular e-Book was featured in the Holiday 2014 issue of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine. Our ornament designs are exclusive to this eBook and designed by SSV members. Anyone can download the ebook in exchange for a donation to their favorite charity. Our hope is that we'd be able to raise some money for very worthy causes and provide some cool patterns at the same time. *** But we need your help! *** We need some volunteers to design some ornaments. Each designer will provide 5 patterns (no more, no less) I ask that the designs are not made available anywhere else (this gives value to the e-book) They have to be designed specifically by you (no posting other people's patterns) Designs must be emailed (or PM) to Travis by Wednesday, November 25th (info below) A few things to keep in mind: Religious and secular designs are accepted. Other religions/traditions also celebrate this time of year, so let's not forget them. Keep detail and size appropriate for an ornament. Don't submit copyrighted or licensed patterns. The due date will sneak up on you quicker than you think. Please get them to me ASAP so I have time to work on them. What do you get in exchange? Credit for your design. The warm fuzzy feeling that you're helping others in need. Submitting your ornaments: Email the ornaments directly to Travis (travis [at] scrollsawvillage.com) or PM me. Formats accepted are JPG, PNG. Please keep the pattern in black & white only (no gray) . That way I can convert them easier when putting together the ebook. I prefer Inkscape files (SVG) if you can. This is ideal if you know how to use Inkscape. That way I don't have to manually convert them.
  20. Got my first great-nephew this year, so I had to do something special for the little guy. @rdatelle helped me track down the pattern and I cut it without the year, but I will sign and date the back. Cut from 1/4" butternut with Watco gloss lacquer. Got the frame from Sloan's as they were going out of business. If I do more, I will strengthen the base of the "B" as it is quite weak.
  21. My future son in law requested a family gift, Christmas ornament. Since all the "crafters" around here have discovered laser cutters, I wanted something different, so I stepped outside my comfort zone and tried compound cut ornaments. A big hit. Now I need to talk to my lawyer friend to see how to set this up. I want to hire someone to store a brunch (50) of ornaments and after I pass, mail them to my daughter every year, just before Christmas. here are some of the ornaments I've cut so far: the small one is birch ( local source for 1" x 1" square dowel, birch) the rest are from pine 2x2. the ornament patterns are Steve Good. The reindeer is a test pattern off the internet.

  23. Hi All. I've been toying around with an idea I'd like to get your thoughts on. I made a customizable ornament kit that allows you to personalize Holiday ornaments. Basically, this is a Inkscape (svg) file that allows you to personalize ornaments with names (or dates). I would provide the SVG file, along with instructions and some promo pics you can post to social media. This is basically a mini business-in-a-box where you can earn a little extra cash this Holiday season. Here's what would be included in the kit: SVG Ornament File - Inkscape SVG file that you can use to customize ornaments. (US Letter & A4 size) Step by Step Instructions - How to use the Inkscape file, and how to export PDFs and PNGs from Inkscape. Promotion Banners - Pre-made images you can post to social media that advertise your ornaments. (5 pricepoints in $ & £) GIMP Promotion Banner Template - GIMP file that allows you to customize your promotion banner with your name and picture. Note: This ornament kit is meant for folks who have a working knowledge of Inkscape. You don't have to be an advanced user, but you should have the basics down. If you'd like to learn more about Inkscape, you can find my free online course here. Here's an overview on how the kit works: With this kit, you can either sell finished patterns to fellow scrollers or crafters. Or you can sell finished ornaments. Here are some selling ideas: Custom patterns for fellow scrollers & crafters. (suggested price: $1-2 per custom pattern) Post to your Facebook (or other social media) that you make custom ornaments. Friends and family would jump at the chance to have a custom ornament designed and cut by you. (suggested price: $10-15 each). Take orders at a craft show, church bizarre or event. Or even scroll on-site. (suggested price: $10-15 each). Sell on Etsy or similar online handmade marketplaces. Just give yourself time to make and ship the items. (suggested price: $12-20 each) Fundraiser for youth group, school, or sports team. (suggested price: $12-20 each) Or maybe, they’re just unique gifts for friends and family (suggested price: $0 each) OK. Here's where I'd like to get your help: What do you think of the idea? Is it something you'd find useful? Do you think it would be too difficult to use? What would you think is a fair price for this business-in-a-box kit (take into account all that is included, including source files). Any other feedback?
