    Still Cutting

    I just completed this on for my son. It is part of what I am doing for his retirement. He sent me a "selfie" he took when he was riding in the back seat of a F-18. I put the picture on a scrolling forum and requested a pattern be made of the picture. This is the second rendition I have done of it. The first one I abbreviated Commander incorrectly, well at least to the Navy. This was cut in 1/2" maple.

    That's amazing, Paul. The close up doesn't do it justice, so I backed off ten feet and it's perfect.

    So many delicate little lines. I have no idea how you can do that without breaking it.

    Paul,

    Why don't you try something difficult instead of all of this easy, intricate, detailed, stuff?

    I guess I will just have to say the same thing I have said to you before, "WOW!"

    Enjoy,

    Thank you all for the very nice comments.

    And JimB I did do a difficult one recently. I did it at the request of my great nephew that stayed with us for a few days. He picked it out to give his Mom for Mother's Day. Here it is:
