  • Turtle teaser puzzle

    Made this today for my cousin's husband. This is the second one of these I've made, from the SSWC Spring 2011 Issue 42.
    I don't make mine exactly according to the instructions in the magazine. Mine is bigger and I stack mine, then use the cut off pieces of the feet and tail from my upper section to glue to the bottom of the lower section, just to give it a bit more depth. I also use contrasting stains and use my wood burner to help hide the cut lines to make it more of a challenge.
    Thanks for looking. Any comments or suggestions welcome.

            I like your idea of woodburning the edges and making it more 3D by gluing the cut off pieces on the bottom. I wish I had thought of them when I cut mine last year. It would have made it much nicer.

                    I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....
