I haven’t done a scroll saw portrait for awhile and I need a gift for a friend that has a lot of elk on his property. So I put this together. It is 1/8” baltic birch ply and cut with a 2/0 blade on my trusty dewalt. There are over 1000 inside cuts. Sorry for the flash in the picture was having a very difficult time getting a picture. Hope you enjoy. Merry Christmas.

Brilliant work!

Great lines and crisp corners – a fantastic effort.

This looks like a Charles Dearing Pattern – very intricate.

Thanks all.

Bob – I did the pattern myself from a photo. Thanks for the complement, I know Dearing does some great patterns.

Absolutely wonderful ! I have never used such a small blade on a power scroll saw. Did you manage to get through the entire project without breaking any blades? In any case, you did a gorgeous piece. ..Merry Christmas.
