  • Think I found a winner.

    Got this pattern from Sue May ( https://www.scrollsawartist.com/nati...with-arch.html )
    Made 1 set and wife sent a picture on FB and within an hour over 12 people ordered one for $65 each.
    Orders are still coming in.

      Is that maple? What is the wood thickness of the people/animals? What's the overall size? Nice looking!

          I’ve seen that pattern and really like it. That’s a good price and what I would sell it for. The poplar is really clear. Really like it.

            Wow, that poplar is some great looking stuff! Nice find on the wood, and excellent pattern choice.

                I also liked the looks of this nativity and bought the pattern. Sorry no pictures yet but I was successful in making the arch out of 3/4" stock instead of the 1 1/2" stock that Sue Mey had suggested. Hopefully I will have pictures by tomorrow.

                    Here is my version using all 3/4" stock for the characters and the arch. The characters are soft maple. The arch is poplar stained with Early American stain. Sorry the lighting is not the best to show the wood grain on the characters.

                        The other beauty of using only 3/4" stock, or whatever thickness you have, you can use the waste wood from the arch to cut most of the navity characters. I am very cheap so I try to get as much mileage as I can when it comes to wood. Here is what I am talking about.

                        I have one more "design enhancement" that I am playing with. That is making the arch a little thicker but still using 3/4" stock and then then using my router to round over the outer edge.

                          Great looking projects. If I do this, maybe for my 2021 fairs, not this year I have an idea for a very different arch. Did you both attach the arch to the base? I would certainly do that.

                            These Nativity projects are very creative and artistic in design. Well done!

                              Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                              Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                              Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
