Ok – so all of you who read my blog have already seen these. But I find that I show them there and then I wait until the patterns are available on my website before posting them here in my project gallery and then I forget to do it! I don’t want you all to think I am getting lazy – so I am trying to keep up with things and post in my gallery too.
The ornaments are approximately 3.5” tall and they are two layers of wood. The back plates are made from 1/8” maple and the reindeer are made from 1/8” walnut. They are cut on the scroll saw and then glued together to make these fine and festive ornaments! If you would like to see how the process is done, I have a five part video series that I posted on my site. It is on the Free Stuff page of my website under the Instructional Scroll Saw Videos link (or you can click right here and it will take you there!)
The videos show everything from applying the pattern to cutting out the designs to applying the finish. So all of you with those scroll saws that are gathering (the wrong kind of) dust in your shops – I hope this inspires you to drag them out and dust them off and give scroll sawing a try! It is fun and relaxing and a great part of woodworking.
PS – the last pictures is the same ornament cut from Baltic birch plywood and stained with acrylic paints and DecoArt Staining and Antiquing Medium. It give it an entirely different look for those of you who like a little color.
I hope you enjoy the pattern! Thanks for looking! (The patterns ARE available on my site at this time.)
