Loving the scroll saw. All these pictures are not my patterns, but I did cut them out. Trying to work on creating my own patterns. But for right now, I’m concentrating on cutting. All these pictures are cut from 1/8” thick Baltic Burch plywood. Thanks for looking.

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

To make your own patterns you might experiment with using a mezzo filter on desired photos.

Very well done scrolling.. I have never mastered the pattern making. But, I have not spent a lot of time trying. There are some great tutorial over on on using Gimp and Inkscape. That is what most seem to use. Both are free software.

I’m not a comic fan yet I am very drawn to the Hulk cutting for some reason.
Now I am a friend of Freddie so naturally that one is super cool to me.
Well done.
