12 piece set of The 12 days of Christmas. Cut from 1/4" poplar wood . Finished with linseed oil for a safe finish and years of protection
Me with a few of the thing I have made. All hand cut on my scroll saw. No laser, no computer aided machine. This is truly scroll saw artistry
Hand cut snowflake ornament in red oak. This ornament was hand cut on scroll saw. You can tell because of the lack of burn on the cuts. This a real keepsake, an heirloom. Something to pass down for generations

About

Early morning scroll saw artist

It is funny how you start doing things and the next thing you know you are selling some. My shop journey started several years ago when I answered an ad for a planner I was looking to buy. The guy selling the planer had a old scroll saw for sale also. The price was good on both, so I bought both. I had never cut anything on a scroll saw, but I have made a great deal of things out of wood. I found a pattern book at thrift store and made a few things for a craft fair I was doing. Mostly plywood ornaments you put in house plant pots. I started to make some crosses and Christmas ornaments for my daughter and grand kids to sell a church craft fair. My interest was more in building outdoor wood furniture. I made a few sets and sold them, but was never able to really get it off the ground. Fast forward to now, I found that I was drawn back to the scroll saw and wanted to concentrate more on doing wood ornaments for all occasions , wood signs and layered wildlife wall decor. I love the artistry of the scroll saw. Taking a piece of wood and with about 10 to 100 cuts it is transformed into a beautiful piece of art a real heirloom. Each internal cut requires a very small hole. Just large enough to get the saw blade through.
Morning are my most productive time. I get up , do my devotions and then spend an hour to an hour and a half running my scroll saw. Once I finish a piece it is sanded smooth, the dust is vacuumed off and then finished with linseed oil.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

Custom orders are always welcome from personalised ornaments to signs with that special message.

Is everything really hand cut

We cut everything on a scroll saw. At no time do we use a computer aided machine to cut anything we sell. Because of this, you are getting an heirloom, one of a kind item.

How are your items finished

We finish everything with linseed oil. Linseed seed gives the wood a beautiful natural finish. Some of our pieces are stained first before the linseed oil finish is applied.

Care instructions

Because our pieces are finished with linseed oil, they require very little maintenance and the finish will last several years.
If your piece needs to be freshened up. All is required is to reapply the linseed oil by pouring the linseed oil on the piece and placing on a paper towel to soak up the excess linseed oil. Than pat the price with paper towels to remove the remaining linseed oil. Let dry for a few hours on a paper towel. Now it should look as good as new. Please note that paper towel should always be used and never should cloth towels should be used do to the reaction that oil and cloth have. Oil on a cloth cause a chemical reaction that makes them burst into flames.
