As soon as I saw this pattern in Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine I knew I had to cut it. The pattern is by Kerry Hallam. I've cut some of his other patterns and they are always very realistic looking. He is a terrific pattern designer. He gives this viking warrior the name of "Vinny". The pattern itself is not terribily difficult to cut, it just takes a long time. I've had it featured in the best spot at my last two craft fairs and I sure have had a lot of comments. It stops a lot of people right in their tracks.
