    The new saw made all the difference in the world giving me the ability to finish this portrait. I did some other stuff so far, but this is my first portrait as well as my pattern. Although, I must give credit to steviegwood for helping me through the conversion of this pic into a pattern. Without his help, I wouldn't have been able to do it. So, here's the finished work. I need to get a frame for it and am hoping to do another one on better wood. This is that nasty cheap stuff from Lowe's, but since I never did a portrait before I didn't want to take my chances in spending too much for firewood

    Hi Mia, I see it came out alright. I am interested in seeing the letters that you spoke to me about for on the diploma. Glad that I could help in some way. What does your daughter think of it? Steve

            Great job Mia.
            I hope you and your daughter don't fight over using the saw.

              At least she's not going 'against the grain' (LOL) like some teenagers do. I know... that was corny.

              BTW... I ordered some of the 1/4" oak ply from (I'd better not say) on line and it was the same ply as Lowe's and Home depots. Very disappointed.

                  Hi Mia

                  Your first, eh? It's a big step and you're to be congratulated on taking it.

                  Some time ago we had quite a deep conversation about what makes a good pattern and it would be interesting to see if you've got anything to add to the thread. Those who are starting out often see things that seasoned scrollers just take for granted.

                      Nice start.
                      I just learned from a thread by Pop about how to create a pattern using photoshop, (Thanks Pop). I'm kinda psyched to finally create a working pattern.
                      Hey, what do think of the DeWalt? Nice saw huh?

                          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
