My first project posting at LJ. I took one of Sheila Landry’s scrollsaw patterns and super sized it on our wide format printer. The result, well, I think it turned out pretty good. :) Made some mistakes, come up with some new tricks. More photos over at my personal web site

Good recovery on that plywood delamination problem. You did a good job with that enlargement, must be
nice to have access to a large printer. I do not think I would like to tackle that big a project on a scrollsaw,
but you did a very professional job on that salmon. It looks great on the wall and is a good incentive to go
fishing. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks folks. To clarify, I didn’t make this with a scrollsaw. I used a jig saw. Also, our daily work is we print large format patterns for pattern designers. So if anybody’s need an enlargement of one of their own, or has permission from the designer to do so, just let me know. Copyright rules always apply.

This looks really cool!

I think you can easily claim the prize of largest work done with one of Sheila’s patterns! :-)

Just wait until Sheila sees this – which I am SURE she will…...

Great work!

Thanks Bob. She’s already aware of it. I had approached her first to get permission to enlarge the pattern before I started.

This is just awesome! Jim is now distributing all of my patterns through his site Woodworkers Workshop . He has been great at encouraging me to “Think Big” and make larger designs that can be done with the jig saw and used for outdoor art (like on the side of a house or barn) I would have never thought it would be possible to make one of my Forest Leaf patterns that big but he did an outstanding job on it! It looks wonderful!

Very nicely done—it makes a great wall decoration, much better than some silly ole painting. LOL

I can’t saying paintings are silly, my dear wife hangs her art in the house too. :)

Thanks. I do like fish but I don’t fish. I would, I just don’t. And there’s a big lake right in front of my house too. :) I choose this pattern because it seemed to be the most difficult of the patterns Sheila had. I figured if I could make this one, the others should be easier. LOL

Very well done. When I first saw it, I was thinking “How on Earth”. Thank you for explaining. It seems doable now. That’s what Lumberjocks is about. Sheila shares, we learn. You share, we learn. Now I have some more crazy ideas!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
