Default New Scroll saw wood portrait.

This is a picture of the wood portrait I made of my son's girlfriend, Ellen.
The second pic is the one I made the pattern from.

Nice scrollwolf. Is that a wolfs head I see in the lower right part of the portrait?

gregW,
I use Adobe Photoshop elements to change a picture into a pattern that I can cut.

Just saw this post and you do good work. A question if I may, I have PSE5 and was wondering just how you go about making your patterns? Thanks Ole

It is a little difficult to explain. Whitewolf, another member on this site, has a tutorial. You should contact him for a link.
