We are doing a Giving Thanks scroll saw challenge over at Scroll Saw Village for the month of November. So I made this word art project inspired by scripture. From 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In all things, give thanks...” Even outside of the Thanksgiving holiday, I think it’s a lovely reminder to be grateful for the things we have.
Since I wanted to make this into a gift, I stack cut the design for multiple copies. I did one in 1/4″ Baltic Birch plywood, and the other in 1/8″ plywood. I taped them together so the wood wouldn’t shift during cutting. I worked on the small letters first, before moving onto the larger holes. I finished with a simple acrylic spray topcoat.
It measures about 11″x10″
The video below shows an expedited process of this word art coming together. It was a fun project. Enjoy the show! If you are interested in the pattern, you an find that here.
I got an email from someone who wanted to create a wordart pattern where half of the word is cut out, and the other half is not. This is a really neat technique that is surprisingly easy to accomplish. So I thought I’d put together a quick tutorial and show you how to make one […]

A buddy of mine wanted a magnet for his dishwasher that would tell him if the dishes are clean or dirty. This is a quick and easy project that I think would be a great craft show seller. In this video, we’ll first design the magnet in Inkscape. I had some scrap ¼” oak that […]
