Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts, Issue 53

It’s never too early to start cutting Christmas gifts and decorations, and this issue is packed with good things for the holiday. We have more than 20 ornament patterns, a stocking hanger, and a candle tray. In answer to a reader request, we have two patterns for lighted wooden tree toppers. Not into Christmas? That’s OK—you’ll probably enjoy making our letter openers, Tolkien-inspired fantasy puzzles, and resin earrings. For a challenge, try the box shaped like a stack of books. Plus, we included tips on choosing the right glue, understanding wood movement, and choosing the best respirator. Wishing you a very happy holiday season—see you next year!
