« Part 1227: Drilling a Vertical Hole into Thin Stock Part 1228 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1229: Additional Options for Drilling Thin Stock »

Today’s post is going to be one that is a bit utilitarian, but I have had so many inquiries from people wondering when the new patterns will be available on the site, that I thought it best to answer it here.

We finished the update yesterday, and have several new patterns and kits available.

Keith has four new designs. First off, he began a series of handsome wildlife themed napkin holders and plaque patterns. The patterns are very versatile because you receive instructions for BOTH the napkin holder AND the matching plaque.

The first three are as follows:

SLDK348 Deer Napkin Holder and Plaque Pattern

SLDK349 Cardinal Napkin Holder and Plaque Pattern

SLDK350 Moose Napkin Holder and Plaque Pattern

We are also offering a special price if you wanted to purchase all three new patterns:

In addition, Keith has created another beautiful basket for his “Classic Collection” series. He called it the Classic Collection “Expo” basket:

SLDK353 Classic Collection Expo Basket

These baskets have continued to be very popular among our customers and this one seems to be no exception.

As for myself, I have finished the two ballerina patterns that I have been working on the past week and they are also up on the site. The first pattern is the SLD449 12 Little Ballerinas Scroll Saw Pattern:

In it are instructions for both the silhouette dancers with skirts that can be lightly painted (no shading – only dress and shoes painted) and also the dancers without skirts in which you can create little tutus using nylon net tulle (instructions included). The dancers without skirts can also depict gymnasts, I think.

The final pattern is the tole painted version of the ballerinas. This pattern includes full instructions for shading and highlighting the dancers and many step-by-step photographs so that even newer painters can accomplish the project successfully. I call it SLDP219 Tiny Dancers Ballerinas:

I will also be offering pre-cut wood kits of the ballerinas as well, for those who don’t cut wood. The ballerinas in the kits will be pre-drilled and also include the gold metallic hanging cord. Their item number and link is here: SLDPK219.

I think they all came out pretty good and both Keith and I hope you enjoy them.

I did also want to mention that a concern was brought up to me regarding the drilling procedure that I showed in yesterday’s post. It was suggested that it would be safer for me to use a jig of sorts to hold the ornaments so I don’t accidentally drill my finger if the drill bit were to slip. While this has never happened or even come close to happening to me in my 15+ years of drilling this way, I do understand the concern and today I will be working on creating a jig for that purpose. I hope to show my results in tomorrow’s post.

I do appreciate these thoughts, as I do want everyone to feel comfortable in the process of woodworking. I have an idea of what I can do to improve the method and the level of safety.

So that should be it for today. I hope you enjoy seeing all the new designs and I wish you all a wonderful Friday!

Thanks, David! You never know. :/ You had me worried because there were lots of pictures today and links. I thought I would be reposting them.

Have a good day today!

Good morning Sheila! I ran through the site yesterday. Now I see I need to go back and meander. I didn’t realize those were napkin holders. I just thought they were table top designs. AND I completely missed Keith’s gorgeous new bowl pattern. No coffee yesterday. Maybe that was the problem! Looking forward to the jig solution! Happy Friday!

Thank you Candy. We actually forgot to put Kieth’s beautiful basket in the newsletter! That got by both of us (maybe WE both needed more coffee! LOL!) I think I have a good option that I already worked on this morning. I will definitely blog about it tomorrow. You need to stay tuned . . . :)

Have a wonderful Friday! :)

Good foggy morning Sheila! It’s pretty dense here at the minute but supposed to burn off later.

I love the new patterns and know already who is getting one of the napkin holders as a Christmas present! When Candy mentioned, in yesterday’s blog, about a jig to hold the ballerinas in place while drilling a hole, I thought of the system I have. I have a clamp which sits on the table of my drill press and I can clamp anything into it where I think the item may wander on me while drilling. I don’t use it very often but it has come in very handy now and then. I’ll send a photo of it. I’ll try to get out to the workshop today to take a picture.
I hope the weather warms up for you soon.

Hi, Anna! Keith is probably making more designs for the napkin holders as well. He has several other designs in mind and will also be offering them at a special price when they are introduced. These have been very popular and he was very happy with the response we have had with them so far.

I posted an update on drilling the little holes in the next blog if you are interested. It gives you another option for holding the piece for drilling. :)

Thanks as always for your comment.
