  • Grandson Cutting

    Here is my latest pattern and cutting of my grandson-to-be. He is 3 yrs old and I could not resist trying to pattern this photo. Comments welcome! I stack cut 4 - 1/8 BB, 2/0 spiral, Duraseal Neutral sealer and 3 coats of spray Deft Semi-gloss. Feels good to be using the saw again even if just for a short time.

        Tim,
        Nice job. I am sure that his first date will really like to see it.

          Now there's a salutary lesson in how to pick a photograph that's suitable for adaptation into a shadow portrait pattern. Smashing job all round .

            Thats a great job you did there on both the cutting and the pattern Tim. Geting rid of the background from the photo really let you focus on the cute kid and you captured the expression perfectly. Oh, and the hair style is a hoot - who said punk was dead ? LOL

                    Nice job, awesome picture to pattern from. You sure did a good job with the pattern. That portrait you made will be highly valued for a long long time.

                      Great job Tim. You really captured his expression well.

                      Jayne, I think you're quite cute in your photo.

                            ALL for your kind comments! It was one of those photos that was just calling out to be cut. He still gets the 'hair' now and then. I gave copies to his mom, Uncle and Aunt, Grandma and great Grandpa. Great Grandpa thought it was drawn on the wood at first then had to come over and check out my Dewalts. He has a 1940's Craftsman scrollsaw that only takes large pinned blades and couldn't figure out how I cut it.

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
