I took a picture and made a pattern from it. Then attached the pattern to wood.
I then used my Dewalt788 Scroll saw to cut the eyes and the lines in the face and hair.
I backed it with another piece of wood painted black.

I just found your work, Mytoya. This website is getting too big to keep up with everyone! I really admire the way you did these portraits. That is some of the best scrollsawing I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing it.

@ Scotsman… No this is not a form or intarsia. I made a pattern of a picture I was giver and cut out all of the black areas…...

@ Barbs… Thank you so much for you kind comment. Your work is Beautiful. I see you are a wood carver. I will be trying my hand a carving soon. There is a whittling class in my area. I will post whatever I make. The class starts in 3 weeks. We will see. Keep in touch!

Carving is exciting, there is so much to do with it. One word of advice, learned from many scars: remember to “never cut toward a body part!” Good luck with your woodworking.

Mytoya, this looks absolutely amazing. I just came upon it by accident and I’m in awe at how lifelike it is. Please keep posting your work, it’s so beautiful.
