    When you recut that, use a pencil and draw a line from where the horse's jaw connects to the neck, straight up. That is the line to follow.

      I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

      To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
