My sister has been after me for something on the scroll saw. I created this cutout after work this evening. A couple of hrs from applying pattern to ready for a lil polly or what have you.

A few more photo’s right here

Very nice work.
Did you use specific software to get the template created from a normal photo or how did you get the black and white template created?

GenuineGeek. thanks I used GIMP – It’s free software that can be downloaded. My son and I are going to create a video of one of the next portraits. We will share it here on LJ’s. I will include how the pattern is made as well.
here is a link to the software. as well, here is a link to videos from Scroll Saw Village on how to use it. Video

a1Jim – thanks, always nice to see you comment.

The title of the post is a little weird. I’m assuming you’re not both brother and sister and husband and wife, right?

Maybe you meant “My sister and her husband”?

Excellant work Michael. I was hoping you would do a video. Looking forward to it.

I always find scrollsawing a hard job. But Michael, how come you are really good on that? Kidding aside, that’s a dynamite!

Again….great job!!

Bill – thanks for your comment. Also, I think the video will be fun.

Surfside – Thanks. I used to find scrolling difficult as well. The correct saw makes a huge difference. The other secret, blade tension. Though the saw we use takes care of that for us :)

pantango – thanks, also, creating a pattern in gimp is just so super easy. You will be surprised how easy it actually is. I did a pattern for Matthew (my son) this evening, took about 25 minutes from start to print.
