Many thanks to MichaelAgate for his excellent blog on how to use Gimp to create the patterns for this type of work. Here is a link to his blog.
This is a picture of my Mom and Dad. I plan to give it to my mom for her birthday this month. Its .25” baltic birch with a walnut frame that I dyed black and finished with a few coats of lacquer. The overall dimension is about 16X22 inches which makes it pretty big for this type of work (I think).
This was the first time I’ve done scroll work like this. I think I had more fun learning the computer software than sitting hunched over the scroll saw, but in the end I think its a pretty good present that both my mom and dad will enjoy.
