Default New Wood Portrait

This is a wood portrait that I made of my wife's grandmother. She turned 95 in April.

Hi Jack

You make me so mad, every time you post a new one..

I wish I could do that well but I have tried

I'm going to try it one time today just for kicks, I used your tip about the blade and they still come out like crap.. I think I'm over working just a bit..

Great job Jack

Thanks bj,
It just takes practice. Start with a simple pattern first.
