This is an 8×10 portrait of my grandfather that I made for him as a gift. I edited out his name for privacy reasons, but it simply says his name and Master Scroller. This portrait, I’m proud to say, is now hanging in his workshop right above his scroll saw. I have also uploaded the original image used to make the pattern.

Portrait cut from 1/8” thick Baltic Birch void free craft plywood.

Note: The white dot in his collar is just a glare on the glass. Also, since taking the photo my uncle commented that my grandfathers hair was not black so I made him happy by placing a grey backing in the hair area.
