Here is a map of the last 30 visitors to this site. I thought I would post this to show the interest around the world in the scroll saw. I have regular visitors from around 10 countries. I was told the scroll saw community on the web was dead. I guess not.

Soldier Scrollsaw Portraits club

I know we have talked about this subject before but I want to help a fellow scroller with a good cause. I received an email from a disabled veteran who is participating in an effort to create a scroll saw portrait for the families of all the fallen soldiers in the war on terror. Larry has been a scroller for a few years and would like to be able to help create the patterns for this cause. He has Photoshop 5.5 but because it is rather old he has been frustrated finding good tutorials to help. I thought I would use a freeware program to explain the steps involved. Hopefully this will help Larry as well as provide a source for this free photo editing software that others can use to create their portrait patterns. You can find this software at the following link.

Good luck Larry and all the scrollers involved in this project. If anyone is interested in details of this effort I will ask Larry for more information the next time we talk and have a follow up post.
