Default Wood Portrait

My wife recently had rotator cuff surgery. It went very well and she is on the mend. Her doctor is one of the best, if not the best in shoulder surgery. So, I decided to make him a gift.
I am also making the frame. I will post pics when it is finished.

Jack,

Are you using Coyote or some other program to help generate your pattern? Looks great!

Very nice Jack !
Nice of you to think of the good doctor as well. They get paid well for their services but some of them deserve it and then some. Sounds like yours is one of them.
