    You can try looking up Japanese Love symbol on google image search
    here is a link for one that is cross stitch
    Tattoos are another place to look.
    I used several for candle sconces

    and the panda I cut has the word friend as a symbol in the bamboo.
    Let me know if you need something specific

      Its called Japanese Kanji and tattoos are the best search to do. Try about. com for the kanji and it also has chinese and korean I think. The chinese and kanji are a little different. The Kanji might use 2 symbols and the chinese only 1 for a word.

      Confuscious didn't own a scrollsaw either.

        Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
        This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

        Wedding Sign
        by Jim McDonald
        I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
        Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
