@lvstealth - I don't know Lisa, but if one had access to lots of cheap lumber, like used pallets, and googled "Free Scroll Patterns" I'd think one could come up with a whole bunch of little patterns to make window ornaments, Christmas ornaments, and other assorted little ornaments that would likely fit the cheap lumber, and afford one a lot of practice to work into bigger things like that pictured.

Not sure what Google will turn up on your end since they have NUMEROUS data centers, but the first link it gave me on Pinterest, there were some real interesting feathers with scenes scrolled out pictured. I know those would fit the cheap lumber nicely.

Maybe the link will take you there... https://www.pinterest.com/explore/free-scroll-saw-patterns/?lp=true

Like most it leads you to pay for this pattern page... You could try copying the picture to your computer and resize them to fit. Maybe @Kenbo could clue you in on how to print them to transfer to the wood.

that pictured is the work of an artist! i love this community! ya'll make me feel like i can do anything!
It's not that we make you feel that way, it's because you know that you can do this. Anyone can. What I do is nothing special and given enough time, a baboon could do what I do. If you ever want some pointers or have any questions at all, you can feel free to PM me and I would be more than happy to help you out if I can. Never sell yourself short because you have talents that you don't even know you have yet.

You can! I've seen your work. It's obvious you've found yourself comfortable and confident on the scroll saw. This is just a little different twist in scroll saw is all. You got it in you. Go for it! Pallet boards don't cost much to play with, and everyone will love little ornaments to hang about the house. Go get em girl!

I cut a piece to enter in this year's local fair. I cut it from 1/4" thick red oak and then built a custom walnut frame with maple splines to put it in. The piece took second place to a simple bowl. I was kind of curious as to why it would take 2nd place so I inquired. It turns out, that the judges thought that it was cut by laser and not scroll saw so they bumped it down to 2nd place. I guess I should take it as a compliment that I've hone my skill enough that they though a computer guided machine did the work. There's always next year.

Absolutely Beautiful Ken! Haven't tried this one, but have the pattern in one of my books. Just haven't brave enough to tackle that project yet...Soon maybe. Have been a subscriber of "Kennyearrings" ever since you've been on YT. A lot of what I've learned about the craft and making project has been frm your channel. You are and excellent craftsman and make it look so easy. I have had people disbelieve me when I show them some of my military plaques . They think it was done by a CNC, til I tell them to Google Dewalt 788 scroll saw and what it does. I feel like you should not have been bumped down though, they were a bit hasty, I think. I watched your truck build with all those cinder blocks....AWWSOME!!! But you didn't make the forklift for unloading all those pallets.....Why????

Well, this post was definitely a spectacular way to start my day and I thank you for all the kind words for me first thing in the morning. I also appreciate you sticking in to watch my show on a regular basis. You have no idea how much it amazes me that people enjoy the program and it's comments like yours that keep me producing the program. As for the forklift to remove the blocks......I guess I got lazy. LOL.
Thank you once again for all the kind words and for tuning in to the show. Now quite wasting time and get out there and start that cutting. There's no time like the present.
