My first Scrollsaw Portrait

Ned Bulken

Lakeport NY and/or the nearest hotel
Long Before I knew any better, I tackled this piece.

the LOML is a firefighter and EMT. I scrolled this because following the WTC attacks, our household was very wrapped up in the emotional turmoil. Lori knew several of the firefighters lost. I scrolled this to help cope with the tumult in our house and lives.
Nice work Ned. I hope to do some scrolling one day soon. I sure would like to see how you mount that piece. I know it will always mean a great deal to you.

Thanks guys,
I don't know about patience being involved, scrolling relaxes me, or used to (haven't done much in the past couple of weeks, busy with the kitchen reno).

I hate to say it, but I never did get around to framing it up, and that piece is not a new one at all. We simply placed it on a dresser with a black cloth behind it for awhile, and now it is in storage.

The pattern is still available online: Fireman and Flag fretwork pattern
