I’m certain you can come up with many ways to use this pattern of beautiful letters and Christmas blocks. You can make the lovely block shapes as shown here, but you can also use the lettering for many other scroll saw projects, such as overlay pieces for plaques, picture frames, etc. You can even enlarge them, which would make them easier to cut.
Included in the pattern are two full alphabets. One set has the graceful and elegant strike through lines, and the other does not. The strike through cuts can be a bit of a challenge for a newer scroll sawyer, so I included the full set with the lines omitted for beginners just starting out.
Both alphabets can be cut as positive (overlay pieces) or negative (cut right into the wood), although when cutting as thin overlay pieces, it is usually easier to stack several layers of wood for added strength. I also suggest using a zero clearance insert on your scroll saw table so that the delicate pieces are properly supported during cutting.
This lettering is a bit challenging to cut in the thick blocks as shown in the photo. It is not recommended for a novice on the scroll saw in its current size. Using thinner or a softer hardwood will make it easier, as would enlarging the pattern.
