Smile Hello!!!

I love working with wood. As soon as I finished my table saw slider I realized I need more tools LOL. So I found a great deal on a dewalt 20" Scroll saw. My daughter seems to love the smell of my garage and all the wood cuttings seems to draw her in. So now Dad and his little girl try to create projects that they both can enjoy. She is 9 yrs old and I showed her how she can make a Panda puzzle and she loves it. I am currently working on a gift for my wife. I would like to make a jewelry box but I wanted to create intricate sides. It's my first detailed wood project with a scroll saw but I know I can get through it. Right now I have been trying to find the right templates to use for the scroll saw sides. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
VB...

There's a beautiful box in the Holiday 2008 issue that would lend itself to being a jewelry box. Take a look. I love it that your daughter is learning to work with wood.

Welcome!

I love the fact that you're working with your daughter. Not only is she learning a new skill, she's making memories of working with you that'll last her entire lifetime.

Have you checked out the free patterns here? If not, take a look at the Summer 2003 issue to see if this is in line with what you're thinking about doing. Pattern Downloads - Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts

Thank you both. I looked at both of these areas and I think before I start spending more money I was hopping to find some free patterns I could play with. The Holiday Issue-- I can't open the pattern section. Maybe I need to be a paying member? LOL

Naw.... your membership dues are the same as mine were. <grin>

Suspect there's some setting in your computer that needs changing to allow cookies or something like that. Let us know what operating system and internet browser you're using. I'm sure someone who's familiar with your setup can lend a hand.

Be sure to check through all the patterns forums, also, to see if something turns up there that you can use. If you have an idea of what you'd like to use, perhaps someone can design one for you. Check out the pattern requests threads, too.

Hope this helps a bit, till someone else comes along who can better lend a hand with your access to the archives.

Well hello yourself VB, welcome to the forum. Glad to hear you and your daughter are enjoying this great lifetime hobby.
If you have not visited Steve Good's site you are in for a treat.
He has many patterns in his pattern catalog (it is on the left side of the page at his site) you can download for "free" but donations are very welcomed. Check out his many videos too.
Hope you find what you need, come back and show us if you did.

Welcome aboard. Scrolling is a great family activity. That is, until you find yourself standing in line to use the saw. I would suggest you keep your eyes open for another great deal on a second saw, it sounds like your daughter needs her own!
