Doug, that is a great portrait! Very well done. Looking at your other project, you do some of the finest scrolled portrait I havbe see.

Nice Job! What material did you use? What scroll saw and blade?

tyvekboy – This one took about 4 hours to make the pattern and 4-5 hours to cut it out.
Woodenwizard – The blank is hard maple. I have a DW788 DeWalt saw and mostly used a #2 reverse tooth blade – for some of the larger areas I use a #5 skip tooth blade.

I know it takes as long if not longer to make the pattern than it does to cut it out. What program do you use to develop the pattern?
Have you ever tried spiral blades on portraits? I use them for most of my cutting. Once I got the hang of the spiral blade, I found it easier than spinning the work piece around to make the cuts with straight blades. Anyway you do very well with the straight blades.

Wow Doug, those are great. I can see you enjoy scrolling as much as I do. Look forward to seeing more of your work

Nice work, what thickness is your material and what do you back it with?
