Thanks Harry & Bob,
No, I made the patterns on my PC and cut them with my scroll saw. I used a 27 t.p.i. on the baby portrait and a #2/0 spiral blade on the dog portrait. The spiral blade gives a more ragged look to the cut. I don't like to use them for fine detail but I have done so, on occassion.

You do fantastic work !!! That is not a wolf tho, It is a dead ringer for my Germab shorthair Pointer ( Gretchen ), from a line of champions. Infact she is my screen saver. Great work, Thanks--Frank Lee

Nice work Jack one of these days I'll have to get my scroll saw working got to much into turning. The only thing my scroll saw is collecting is shavings but one day.

All the more amazing Jack, as is you patience to keep threading the blade through all the holes.

Amazing work as always Jack. I can't even imagine the # of blade threads required in a project like those.
