Default First ever scroll project

Here's a completed portrait of a wolf photo I had. Used GIMP to clean it up and every other suggestion I could find from within the forum to do the cuts.

1/4 birch plywood. Dimensions are 11" X 16 1/2"

Lots to learn from everyone! Keep it coming!

Take care,

Are you pulling our leg? Looks great for being your first time around. You must be a natural at scroll sawing.

Hi Jack - that's some really neat cutting for a first try. Congratulations!

Now whatever you do don't give it a way. Date and sign it on the back and keep or display it somewhere handy. It's also great to have your first piece on hand to look back at as a yardstick as you become more and more experienced in scrolling.

Good cutting Jack! Those eyes are hard to cut aren't they?
You did a very good job.
