  • Portrait pattern request

    Hi, I'm looking to see if anyone can help me with this. A former co-worker of mine recently passed away and I have been asked to make a small dedication to him. I would like to be able to do his portrait as part of that dedication. If anyone can help me with this, it is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

        You guys are great! Thank you both so much for taking the time out to design this. I know my former coworkers will be very happy.

          I'm curious - how long does it take to make a pattern from a portrait like this? I need to make one and haven't done it before so I know it will be considerably longer the first time, but I'd like to know what is typical once you know what you're doing.

            I had seen in an old scroll saw mag that there is software that would allow any scroller to convert any portrait / picture to a working scroll saw pattern. If I do find the mag I will post necessary info for purchase. When it originally came out it priced around $90.

              by tgiro01
              With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

              I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

              I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

              But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

              +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

              It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
