  • macaw puzzle

    I had a customer see the hanging macaw puzzle in my photo album. she asked if I could make it to sit on a perch in stead of it hanging it.so here is what I came up with.

    What a great idea. I have 2 of those puzzles in the shop waiting to be fixed. Sis accidently broke one of them by knocking it down and it fell on the floor and broke. It can be fixed with no problems so I think I might have to do what you did with yours. Thanks for sharing the idea.

      Nice puzzle - nice perch. Should make a great conversation piece!

        Great idea I may even like the perch better. I'll have to add it as an option.

          I agree with Mike, perch looks better.

            Excellent! Buyers don't have to clean the cage either!

                I agree with the others....I like it even better with the perch.

                Does anyone recall which issue that pattern was in?

                    I think that is a very clever variation - and refreshing for an older puzzle. I am sure that came out in the early part of this century. But, don't recall exactly when.

                    Why does that beak remind me of Jimmy Durante??? I can just about hear a "ha cha cha chaaaa!"

                              To the OP: Can I ask what you used to paint the puzzle pieces? Thanks!

                                You know, I went back and looked at this on Sue's site. I like your choice of woods/color better than the original. If I do this one, I'll follow your example.

                                I'm pleased that so many of you recognize the challenge when trying something new. My sanding skills are quite well developed, but my cutting demands an almost Zen-like concentration. I don't think I ever mentioned that years ago, when I did more household plumbing, I was able to get a smooth curve...
