These are some examples of my attempt at scroll saw portraits. I developed the patterns from photographs. They are cut in 1/8 baltic birch ply using a #1 spiral blade. The sabertooth tiger was stack cut with two layers of 1/8” ply and 4 sheets of paper in the middle. The third picture shows the four paper cut outs. This worked out so well, I plan to do most of these types of cuttings that way. You end up with two wood cuts and 4 to 6 paper cuts that look great and seem to be very popular.

Wow, this looks very trying on the patience. Stressful….one wrong move and off comes a tooth!
The completed product must be very satisfying however!
Nice job.
