    Gary Browning has a book out on it (Scroll Saw Portraits), but there are several people on the site who make their own patterns. I know Canadian Scroller uses Serif a lot...perhaps he can help!

      I use Corel Photo Shop Plus. If you don't have any luck, e-mail me the photo and I'll see what I can do with it.

          Has anyone tried Coyote Stencil Shop, to make patterns from pictures?

            Some love it, some think it a waste of money. I'm in the latter group. Good news is that you can download a trial version with the only limitation that you can't save your work. Personally, I'm not impressed with it.

              Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
              Was it a good idea.....?...

              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
