After making a memorial plaque for my grandfather, my aunt told me she wanted one too. Being the type of person to like surprising people, I decided instead to make this for her. This is an 8×10 portrait, and I included the image used to make the pattern.

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