Default Portait Freedom

Here is another Freedom Portait that I have cut and sent to the family of a Fallen Soldier. Cut with a 2/0 Spiral blade in 1/8" BB Ply with a felt backer.

The pattern was done by Gary Browning.

I really like doing these!!!

You've done a nice job. I'm sure the family will like it. It's too bad though that it had to be made.

Thank you all for the kinds words. Cutting these portraits is the best way I can honor those who have given SO much and let their families know they are not forgotten.
