  • 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.

                    Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                    I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                    This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                    I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                    Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                    How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                    I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                    First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
