Talking FINALLY A Sawdust Weekend!

So I think it was last (8/19) weekend, I finally got a sawdust weekend. The deck is complete, and there were no other projects due, so I went out to the shed and did some cutting. No signs (that will hopefully be this weekend) but I got some scrolling done. I needed a tablet stand, and Ken wanted a little larger one than I made him last time, and I made a couple novelty items.... All these patterns are Steve Good, I believe. The second picture is a stand to hang on your steering wheel to hold your tablet when you're sitting in your vehicle, and a phone foot. No, it can't stay on while driving... it will fall off, That's what I like about the design. I use it while I'm on lunch at work, playing my puzzles on my tablet. I put a piece of non-skid rubber on it tonight. The Frog is for my gf who loves frogs, and the massager? Well, I had to give it a try. I used wooden wheels, rather than cutting my own, so only the handle was cut. I had a small metal rod, and used it, instead of a wooden dowel. Figured it would be a tad sturdier.

That's a fun frog. Love the big feet. Glad you're making a little sawdust again. Work has a way of getting in the way of fun.

Great frog! Your design? Source for the eyes?

Enjoy the sawdust.

Thanks. Not my design, (sorry to say) Jon. It's Steve Goods design. He has a whole slew of free scroll saw patterns. I picked up the eyes at Joanne's. They're technically too big (40mm) but the next size down they had in stock was too small.

Barb: Appreciate the details. I’ll definitely check out Steve’s website For me the “eyes” really make It pop.

Barb fitting work and having in the shop is hard to do. But being retired and able to work in the shop every day isn't as easy as I make it look.

Like every body else I like the frog. Great job.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
