  • Portraits of Pets

    I noted that Robert did a picture of his dog in a previous thread. How many have done them? Pictures of pets that is. Here is a portraits of my Shop hound and the picture the pattern came from.

    Nice work Chuck.

    I'd like to do one of my 2 German Sheperds, but can't get the patern done properly (yet).

    Someday, I'll get it right.

    You did your bud proud.

      You did a downright decent job Chuck. I've done more pet portraits than anything. So far, I've been lucky enough that people have been requesting purebreds so I've always been able to find a free pattern online. I had to change the markings on a Jack Russell once but other than that, print and cut.

        Chuck,
        That's a great likeness of Jack. What did you use to make the pattern?

          The pattern was done by a lady named Jodi Smith on the MSN site Free scrollsaw Patterns. All I did was cut it.

              Nice work Chuck
              It is quite an honor to your bud to immortalize him in wood like that. I don't know what I'd do without Merlyn and I hope you got the same "extra" connection scrolling Jack that I did with my buddy. I've never had a drug or drink that even comes close
              Nice job !

                Thanks for the compliments but I was hoping to see some other cut-outs of your pets.!!!

                  Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                  Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                  My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                  I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
