    You can always post and see what our good friends will do. I have seen some awesome portraits.

    If you want to do you own, there is are good lessons using Gimp at

    Village University • Scroll Saw Village

    There also instructions using Paint Shop Pro at

    Arpop's Pattern Academy

    Good luck and I hope you post your results.

    The short answer is no. What you need to do is have a picture that is not copyrighted.

    Place the pic in the scroll saw pattern request forum and ask for assistance in getting a pattern made.

    Then you can cut out the pattern and post a picture of the finished project along with a big thank you for the designers here who made you the pattern. You can also look up former threads regarding how to learn to create your own patterns but it is not a simple process and it does take time.

    I hope that helps you get started down the right path to creating this project for your pastor.

    Welcome to the forum,.

    Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

    I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

    Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

    I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

    Well done!

    Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...

    RJ actually that room was an add on to our sanctuary it was meant to be a Gym and the shutters where to protect the windows. I has never seen a basketball since it was built in 2001. Our pre school uses it and we use it for many events plus we rent it out for private use....
