  • Face in Nature

    It's been a long time since I did a portrait. This is from Rick McCulley and I believe it's called Face in Nature. Had fun cutting it. Picked up a frame from Goodwill for $2. Frame is a little rough, but overall I like it.

    Thanks for looking.

    Dan, nice cutting. Did you find all the horses in the picture?

        Great job Dan. I have that one on my cut list too, but haven't had time to cut it yet.

          That is awesome. Where is that pattern available? It took me a few seconds to see the old mans face and all the other horses but that is a nice piece.

            Thanks guys.

            Mick, I think there are three horses. Let me know if I missed one.

            Mike, I downloaded the pattern from one of the scroll saw forums several years ago. I tried looking for it in the pattern section of the forums but couldn't find it. If I figure it out I'll let you know.

              I just noticed something...there are two faces in there. Of course, the ugly one above the picture is my reflection. I have to learn to take better pictures.

                    Signed? Yikes! I've never signed any of my work. Where do you folks usually sign, front or back?

                      I cut that picture a couple of years ago and you wouldn't believe the attention it brings to my area at shows. I put it up right in front and people walk up and look at it for a minute or two and then start to ask questions about it. That picture alone has enabled me to sell a lot of things for just being what it is. I've never sold one of these but it has really brought the people to me corner and then they look over all my cuttings and most of the time I get a sale. Great picture. David

                        I usually sign the back of my projects. I was curious if the pattern had the signature of the designer on it.

                          The pattern just says Rick. I had to do a search to see find his last name. Luckily, someone else cut the pattern and mentioned his full name.

                          David, I have my first show of the season Sunday so I think I'll put it on display and see what kind of attention it draws. Thanks.

                              I got a First Place and Best of Class for that cutting at our County Fair a few years ago.
                              There are 2 faces and 4 horses.

                              The forth horse is a sneaky one, just the rear end going off the pix on the right side.

                              I have the cutting labeled "What Do You See?"

                              People see all sorts of things from deer heads to Kokopelli's.

                              A great conversation piece.

                              I sold one for $125.00.

                                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                                I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

                                Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
