I thought this year I would give Christmas ornaments as stocking stuffers so I have been busy at the scroll saw. I also wanted to test the effectiveness of my scroll saw down draft dust collection system . At the end of the day I didn’t have any visible dust on the saw, below the saw, on my lap, on my feet, or up my nose :).

Very nice Lee! I love the look and I think my favorite is the 3 wise men. Good work as always!
Now I must check out your dust collector!

Very nice. I spotted the Wise Men in your L2L SS DC v1.0 post yesterday and really liked them. The others are all well done. Looks like there are going to be some lucky stocking owners in the near future. Glad to hear the successful update on v1.0!

Super job on the ornaments and nice to hear that the dust collector is working well for you. All that scrolling definitely shows it’s efficiency. Nice work.

Very nice and well done Christmas ornaments, Steve has some great patterns.
I really like your dust collection system, an excellent example of adapting existing technology to solve the problem and dust is a real problem with scroll sawing. After seeing your system I am going to try something similar. It would seem that the scroll saw manufactures would address the dust issue.
