Here is a portrait I had done of a friend. Starting off with a photo I work slowly into a pattern then the pattern goes to wood and the wood goes to the scroll saw.

Scroll saw work, done in Birch ply. Start off with converting the picture to a basic black and white and then take out or add shading on the computer until I’m happy with the pattern. Then it is a matter of gluing on the pattern and cutting away. Took a total of about 20 hours.

Outstanding! Actually captures the portrait of the individual, and one of the best I’ve seen in quite a while.

How do you convert the photo to black and white?

That’s a great looking portrait, very intricately cut especially on the hair and beard details. Excellent job!
