I designed this pattern and cut two. One for her daughter witch she finally got this X-mas and one for Laura. This was my first portrait I every cut. I cut this last year about a month after I started using the scrollsaw. The pattern I designed in Photoshop. To much work about 10 hours. Not to bad for a newbee or at least at that time I was.
Thanks Dennis

Very nice work. I do not have the patience for that.

Great work on this Dennis, perfect likeness on both. Those computer programs work, but they can sure suck up a lot of time. I suggest you make yourself a light table and just trace by hand. It’s a lot faster and more fun too. That’s I am doing now after initially wasting so much time on the computer. Not everything is best done by machines!

Dennis, you did a fine job on scroll sawing this portrait. The detail is amazing.
