Hello and welcome to my shop!

My name is Jay Roberts. As a scroll saw artist I combine creativity with a passion for woodworking to produce my unique art. I work from digital photos of celebrities, couples, kids, pets, friends, and families to create one-of-a-kind, realistic wooden portraits. Much of my most recent work is featured in my shop. Each portrait is professionally hand cut THROUGH a sheet of beautifully grained Baltic birch then sanded, sealed, finished and framed. I don't use lasers or CNC (Computer Numerical Control) to produce any of my art. Please watch my video for a demonstration.

Each celebrity portrait is created in a single cutting from a stack of 4 boards. This is the second of four available for this piece. Once all 4 are sold I will not recreate the same portrait. Those who own a piece have something extremely limited and unique. For anyone interested, I would be happy to create a different portrait of the same celebrity.

If you seek to commission a kids portrait, couple portrait, pet portrait, friend or family portrait …don't hesitate to send me a request. (

OMG! I have no words to describe the sheer beauty of this speaker! I love everything about it! Except maybe that I didn't take into consideration the size of my iPhone case. No matter, it still works. :) I love, love, LOVE that I can charge my phone while it's in the slot. The sound is incredible for something so compact! I am in awe! Highly recommend!! ❤️

As with all craftwork, the quality can never be communicated via photo. Now that I have them in hand, I am very impressed with the thoughtfulness and care with which the art has been created and mounted. In addition, the artist was very nice, responive to every question and fulfilled a special request. That kind of enjoyable interaction with the artist adds to the enjoyment of hanging his art in my home. Thank you, Jason :)

I wanted to find a special way to memorialize one of the most important events of my life, proposing to my fiancé. Once I saw one of these art pieces, I knew that this was the perfect solution. My fiancé and I just received the final piece and we are completely blown away. The rendition of our special moment is simply amazing.

I love this keepsake!! The order was completed well within the given timeline. The work is beautiful and obviously personal. The frame is of excellent quality and has a sturdy strap hanger, which I prefer for pieces this big. The shop owner contacted me after my order to make some simple adjustments to ensure the piece would be perfect for the happy couple to enjoy forever. I can't wait to give it to them. Will use this shop in the future!
