GREAT JOB! I have done a couple of Jeff’s patterns so I know the effort that went into this peice. You always get a good feeling of accomplishment when they are done and people are always so impressed. As a fellow scroller and colorado woodworker I always enjoy seeing my neighbors work. Thanks for sharing.
I also do my portraits with a 2/0 spiral blade. What saw do you use?

How did you finish your piece? I was figuring on dunking it in Watco or something like it.
I have 2 more of his patterns i got a couple of years ago. “Lady’s First” and “A Sleep at the Wheel”.

Becareful with Jeff’s designs. He was found guilty of copywrite laws for taking other artist images and selling them to magazine’s without permission.

Wow, Since I bought 3 of these about 3 years ago how do i know which ones make? I usually don’t sell any of them anyway. Always give them away for charity functions. Thanks for the info.

The Hegner is a Great saw. I cut most of my portraits in 1/8 inch baltic birch and do not finish them. I do custom picture framing so I put mat board around them and frame them under glass. I have not used hardwood ply but I would think you could dunk them in watco to bring out the character of the grain and that would work just fine.
