I found a Mother’s Day scroll saw pattern on Steve Goode’s Scrollsaw Workshop website. I took his pattern, scanned it, saved it as a jpg. file, then imported it into my Big Print software designed by Matthais Wandel of Woodgears
I doubled the size of the original pattern in the Big Print program, printed it, glued it to a piece of 1/4” hardboard, then cut it out on my scroll saw. I carved the sign on a 3/4” piece of cedar by tracing the pattern and using a 1/8” 60 degree V bit and a 1/8” up cut spiral bit in the router. I free hand cut the sign outline on my scroll saw.
This is just one more use for this handy little 3D pantograph. Now that I have the pattern made I could, if I wanted to, make several dozen of the same sign.
