Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry Scroll Saw Pattern.

I have always been a Clint Eastwood fan. I loved the early western movies like The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Dirty Harry was great and Every Which Way but Loose was worth watching multiple times.

For those of you who are not familiar with portrait style patterns let me give you a couple of tips. 

When I design a portrait pattern I use grey as the background. In this pattern, you cut away the white area. The grey area is the wood.

Most portrait-style patterns are cut using a spiral blade. You don't have to pivot the board when you use a spiral blade. That makes cutting larger portraits easier. This portrait is only 8" X 10" so if you are more comfortable with a flat blade this is small enough that it will work okay.

Some scrollers cut portrait patterns from 1/8" Baltic birch plywood. This makes it easy to stack cut multiple copies. The thin boards are also easier to frame.
