    I'm doing some Ancestry.com stuff and I get pictures from relatives and know some of the folks in the pictures, but others are lost to time. It is frustrating.

    Well done Jeff. The patterns you made are great!

    I am sorry for the loss of your son. It is a heartbreak we should never have to endure.

    I made the patterns for my son and the one of my Dad, the John Wayne and the Minuteman were commercial patterns.

    Jeff excellent work on all of these. I am sure your family will cherish the ones of your beloved son and your father for sure. I am sorry for the loss of your son. I cannot imagine the grief and pain your family endured in losing him so young. I pray that you are finding healing and peace. Thank you for sharing your work.

    Sorry for your loss, Jeff. I’m sure your wife will cherish your gift for many years to come.

    I hope your use of the scroll saw brings you pleasure and satisfaction. Your work is lovely.

  • Decided to try some portraits, my late son (age 29), my father, and John Wayne

    Decided to do a special Christmas present for my wife, our son Sean Patrick died two years ago at Christmas time so I took one of the pictures I have of him and did a scroll saw portrait of him. Since I came out ok I also did one of my father in the Marines after Iwo Jima, John Wayne and the Minuteman statue.

    I used Baltic Birch, 1/8" for the one of Sean and the Minuteman and 1/4" for the other two. I use a Dewalt 788 I got about 15 years ago but hardly have used.
