  • 4 Garden Benches

    Here's a puzzle with some assembly options. Each quadrant has a slightly different "bench". It can be put together the regular way or one quadrant at a time, which is especially fun with four people. I put different colored dots on the backs of the pieces in each quadrant so that they can be separated and put together individually.

    The front of the completed puzzle is posted here and the back will follow with the next post. As always, questions are welcome, by posting them here or via email directed to [email protected]

    Have phun.....

    ....and here's the color-coded back. The total number of pieces is about 380. A group of four should be able to easily put it together in an evening amidst lots of conversation.

        Carter,

        Like Sharon. You are just amazing. This puzzle is just out of this world.
        Not enough words to describe how beautifull it looks but the craftsmanship what goes into making some like that.
        Thank you for sharing it Carter. You are just great.

          Amazing

          Carter, just to let you know I recently retired. I plan to do some traveling to the scroll shows scheduled for '06. So If'n I find out where you live I'll be looking to come over for personal puzzle scrolling lessons!!

          In the mean time I am learning more each time you post one of your amazing puzzles. Maybe soon I'll start posting them here as well for your professional advice.

              Carter,
              Your puzzles are awesome! What a talent!
              Just to be curious what kind and size blades do you
              use to make your puzzles?

                Thank you all for your comments.That's what makes it all worthwhile! Bill, I use 2/0 Flying Dutchman Superior Puzzle Blades from Mike's Workshop. When using baltic birch they last about 50 pieces. When using poplar (which I obtain from Wildwood Designs) the blades last about 200 pieces.

                Please note that the effect of this puzzle can be obtained by glueing four greeting cards right next to each other, then cutting puzzle pieces that lock them together.

                      Wow, that's cool, Carter!
                      Looks like a group of 4 could put it together 4 times without being the least bit bored - whilst enjoying small talk & such - maybe on 4 different occasions, though. You are the man!
