  • "The Man in Black" scroll saw portrait.

    Here's a pattern I designed from the famous picture. It took me over 4 hours to cut the guitar but it was well worth it.

    Hmm...I hope the pic uploads ok...if not you can view it here

        Welcome aboard Kerry! And nice job on both the pattern and cutting.
        I too like doing portraits, I checked out your site and liked your work, very nice.
        What kind of software do you use? Do you also use a graphic pad to aid in you designs? I use coyote and am learning PSP 8, I don't have a graphic pad yet but Christmas is right around the corner
        I look forward to seeing more of your work, and hope to see you around here on the board!

          Thank you Bill. I use Paint Shop Pro 9 to create the patterns I cut. I do have a graphics tablet but I don't find I need it as much as I thought I would...but yeah, I do use it for some things.

          I have cut a lot of pictures that are not on display on my website right now because they are "under wraps" until xmas day. Then I will bulk copy them up and they will be viewable.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
