    Ornaments - Scroll Saw or Laser

    I have been making a lot of these. I use 0.125 cherry. Engraves very nice.

    I know it is cheating but I'll use the laser. If any Scroll Saw guy or girl wants these designs I would be glad to send them to you.

    Lucky

    I sell a few ones and twos but not many.

    I am lucky to have some repeat customers. A few that buy 10-20 every year. Also once in a while someone will buy a personalized one for every person at their Christmas Party.

    They have a tree with one for each person on it. As the party goes on someone notices "Hey these have our names on them.' Then they all start looking for their's.

    Like I said I am lucky to be invited and to be able to see everyone enjoying my work. Most of the people there do not know where they came from.

    I have had people tell me a story about some small item (ornament or pen ) they got from someone special and how much it means to them. I love it when I can tell them, I know I made it.

    Those are real nice. I'd take you up on the offer but I'd have to clean about 3" of dust off my cheap old scroll saw.

    Those look great, Pete. Amazing what those electron-powered scroll saws can do, huh?

    Those are SWEET Pete, and using the laser as a wood working tool is what it was made for and you do use it well

    Very nice. Do you send the designs over the internet? I'm thinking you mean the patterns. If so I'd take them.
