This is a scroll saw portrait of my family. We have another bun in the oven so next year I will have to update this one. Too bad there is no Photoshop for the scroll saw.

This was made with a #2 spiral on an 16” Excalibur

I used Gimp to transfer the photo to a pattern.

And just to clarify, what I meant by this not being possible is how to you find time to get out to the woodshop w/ 4 kids and one on the way?!

Seriously though, nice work.

That is really tremendous work. You captured the essence of your family portrait, which is no easy task. Congratulations on a very fine piece.

Thanks DonDA

Thanks Nate – I think we are going to need a 21” or the 30” Scroll sawing is addicting.

Step up to 3/4” maple and I assure you that you’ll have the world’s most unique trivet.

Fuigb – great idea :)

Woodbridge – you are making me blush. It was actually so easy to do. There were 3 ingredients to making this.

1. A good Scroll Saw
2. GIMP (Free Program) Helps turn photo’s into patterns
3. MDF

I will do a video of one of the next portraits if I get the gusto to do so.

Thanks again everyone.
