Scroll saws can come in handy for making Christmas presents, especially when funds are at a bare minimum. Here are a few designs I came up with, day before yesterday. I traced the sketches into Adobe Illustrator, and then transferred the patterns to the wood. These were presents for my sisters.
My sister talked me into watching The Visitor. Some movies have titles that don’t make me want to watch them, so it’s good that she insisted.
It’s a story about a college professor who is trapped in a dreary and meaningless life. Richard Jenkins, the lead actor, does an amazing job of conveying a wide range of subtle emotions. He slowly finds new meaning to life when he accidently makes some new acquaintances and begins to open himself up to new experiences. I’m a fan of powerful, understated stories, and this one didn’t disappoint.
