    I found this pattern on another forum. The designer Paul goes by the name 'Grandpa'. I used 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood 11 x 14. The pattern was enlarged by 20% and even then some of the holes were small. There are almost 300 holes. I used FD New Spiral #2/0. The backing is a black mat board and I framed it at ArtCrafters, The picture does not show, but I included framing quality Acrylite. Comments welcome.

            [What blade for this?]

            I used a Pegas 2/0 skip tooth blade for this and all my 1/4" plywood puzzles. Any 2/0 blade will give similar results, as long as it is a simple blade which cuts only on the down-stroke. I stick with Pegas because I have found them to be consistent....

            Are you thinking spray or brush? If it is a big grain you will need to use a grain filler, I have never used a filler so can't help much there. This may help a bit.

            Rolf, I use White pine or Cedar but the most important aspect is the painting technique. I always put on a white primer, use fine steel wool to remove imperfections, Apply exterior outdoor paint, rub fine steel wool after each application when dry and final finish I apply clear poly ( spray can )...
