My father worked in a coalmine for much of his life. I made this pattern from a painting and cut it in 1/4" birch-faced ply. I still have to frame it, but it scans better without the frame

Thanks for your kind words, Evie. The pattern took about three hours and the cutting about the same. (if you look, carefully, there are not that many separate cuts - I make all my patterns in that manner, 'cos I hate threading the blades).

Awesome Jigsue, there has been a huge lack of miner patterns. I have had several people ask me for them and have not made any...Great job.

Nice pattern Sue... My father was a coal miner also. He worked 43 years underground. He is now 99 years young, and in better health than me. May I use your pattern to make my father a picture?

Bruce,

Sorry I cannot permit you to use my pattern. I got the picture from the net and "fair use" would not permit me to distribute the pattern based on someone else's work.
