  • Hello from Newfoundland, Canada.

    Hello folks, my name is Kerry Roberts. I am from the beautiful province of Newfoundland on Canada's East coast.

    I am a scroll saw enthusiast whose specialty is scrolling portraits in wood.

    You can view a lot of my work on my website at

    I look forward to chatting with you.

    Hi Kerry

    Welcome to the forum. It's nice to have such an accomplished portrait pattern maker among us .

    Psst... I sneakily altered your link to make it look the way you wanted. I don't think anyone will notice so long as we keep quiet about it .

        I peeked at your website and you do great design and cutting, you are more than welcome.

        When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

            Hi Kerry,

            I actually have your site saved as one of my "favorites". I ran across your work a few months ago and am quite impressed. Occasionally, when I'm working on a design, I'll look at a couple of yours for ideas. I hope you don't mind. I'm not copying anything, just seeing how you finished a mouth or ear or something. I was wondering when you would join our scrolling family. I'm glad you did. Welcome aboard.

              Hey Mike I don't mind at all my friend. You are most welcome to learn from anything I have done on the pieces I have cut.

              Here is one I just finished a few days ago.

              Here is the original picture:

              Here is the finished product:

                  Hi Kerry & welcome!! I had the pleasure of being stationed at Argentia many years ago when the Navy base was there. I spent many weekends in St.Johns. My son was born there. Newfoundland is one of my favorite places. If you need information,you're in the right place(some of it will even be useful!)

                    Hi Kerry. I also am from Newfoundland and I live in Gander. I have done portraits of my family as well and have even done a couple of orders for customers. Your work is very nice and i have visited your website.

                        Hi Kerry and Annie

                        I spent a year in Gander in the RCAF stationed at the radar station from fall 59 to fall 1960, had a great time, no TV in those years, learned to talk to people again. I haven't tried any portraits I have been doing mostly intarsia.

                          Great Portraits

                          Hi Kerry, great work on the portraits. Welcome to the family. I just recently started cutting some portraits myself. I will probably have some questions for you if you don't mind. Steve

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                              Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
