    I’m preparing for my (first ever) scrolling demo and finally got the display shelves finished. Now I need to fill them with examples of different kinds of projects that you can cut on a scrollsaw. What I’ve got so far are:
    • puzzle
    • word art
    • portrait
    • boxed play set
    • wicker style basket
    • compound cut angel
    • woodimal
    • clock
    • nite lite panels
    I'm asking you all for additional ideas. What kinds of things can I add to the list? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I used to 101 courses and I liked to highlight personalized pieces as the new scrollers were impressed. I showed ornaments and kid items.

    I used to get a lot of comments on bird houses too.

    At one event I gave away hugs.

      Compound cutting is always an audience favorite. Just one piece of advise on those. Precut one side/profile. Most people will not stick around to watch the whole thing.

        Ornaments would be a good choice as well.

          Intarsia, fretwork, segmentation --- to show differences in styles.

            Have you done your presentation ?

            ​​​​​​​All great suggestions. When our club had it's annual show we (the scrolling SIG) had at least one of every thing that could be done on a scroll saw. We always had at least two saws going. I made mostly compound cuts and my friend Joe would cut simple ornaments to give to the kids. The compound cuts take me just a few minutes.

              Still have a little time (which I’ll need 🙄). I went through my back issues of SSWC and pulled out a few ornament patterns and a few others that should keep me busy up to show time.

              Interesting thought … wonder how it would be to cut on a treadle saw? Have to try that one.

              Thanx all for your input.

                The first time that I saw the small reindeer cut and were I got the pattern was at my very first Scrollsaw picnic at Fox Chapel publishing back in 2005. There was a guy outside that was cutting them on a treadle saw. I don't remember his name.
                I had only been scrolling for about a year at that time.

                  I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index).

                    If you just do a Google search for 3d reindeer ornament, you should get several choices.

                      The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

                      Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8

                      Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www.scrollsaws.com/images/MiscPics/3ddeer.pdf

                        Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                        Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                        I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                        I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....
