Old Coasty - Bob

Here is a link to Diana Thompson's latest book on these ornaments. It's also available now from many other book sources.

Compound Christmas Ornaments for the Scroll Saw : Easy-To-Make & Fun-To-Give Projects for the Holidays by Diana Thompson (Paperback - Revised Ed.): Booksamillion.com: Books

For the reindeer, I've attached a post to this thread that describes how to cut them and attached a printable photo sheet of the plans for making them. "Compound Cut" and "3D Cut" refer to the same method of cutting where all cuts are made both vertically and horizontally through a block of wood. When the scrap is removed. the 3 dimensional item that was cut out appears from the middle. It's a totally unique method of using a scroll saw, and one that I'm hooked on. I can't stop making them.

Hi Charlie, I was reading your article, could hardly wait until I would get to the end so I could see your work, than I could see no pictures, if you could please repost your pictures, I would enjoy looking at them, maybe If I had a pattern I could cut some before Christmas.

Hatman39 Ron,

Everyone else can see the pictures, so you must be having a problem with your computer. My pictures of the Ornaments are posted at the end of post #1. Post #16 has a picture of my reindeer cutting plan for a whole sheet of the 3" reindeer (9 reindeer) posted at the end of it. The link to Diana Thompson's latest book "Compound Christmas Ornaments for the Scroll Saw" is in the middle of post #23. Photos take a little longer to open. You can't quickly scan through the posts to see the larger photos.
Wait at the end of post #1 for 20-30 seconds to see if they will open.

Can you receive attached photos from other sources? Check your computer set up.
If you can receive attached photos in your e-mails, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll reply to that e-mail address with the photos that I've posted in this thread. I can't and I won't post copyrighted photos or information from Diana's books. You will need to buy Diana's two Ornament books if you want the plans for her ornaments. (The first of her Ornament books is out of print - The second book is available from booksellers now - see the link in post 23).

Charley, I think you may have inspired me to start scrolling, again. Beautiful work!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
