  • Bird Pictures Puzzle

    Hi folks....

    Here's a puzzle made from a calendar picture of a living room. Each of the pictures on the wall is of a bird.....and each of them is cut into little pieces as a puzzle unto itself (but with locks to pieces outside its frame).

    I'll be taking a break from puzzle making for a trip in mid May. Our son Tim Johnson is the director for Dreamworks of the animated film "Over the Hedge", opening May 19. He has invited me to accompany him on an all-first-class trip to the Cannes Film Festival. I find I have to use two things I haven't used in 50 years: a passport and a tuxedo!

    Tim directed ANTZ and Sinbad and has high hopes for this one. It has been scored by test audiences higher than either of the Shrek films.

    I've posted the puzzle's front and back below. Its made from 5-ply poplar and contains 381 pieces.

    Have phun.....Carter

    Another masterpiece, Carter. You the Man!
    Sounds like your son got a healthy dose of daddy's creative genes. Have a fun trip.

      That's just marvelous! You do such good work on these puzzles. Take care and have fun (phun) in France. You will find the people in the South of France are much friendlier then the Paris people. (Paris people scare me and I have been there 3 times).

      I am, as well, going on a trip. Tomorrow my wife are setting sail for England. we will visit Bermuda, the Aizors Islands., and Spain before landing in Southampton.

          Hey Carter,

          I've see the movie trailer for Over the Hedge and can't wait for it to come out. I'm a fan of the comic strip.

          (Antz was also great, as was Sinbad.)

          Enjoy the craziness, Cannes film festival is something else. Give us a report when you come back

          And congrats on the puzzle, nice work as usual.


          DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

            Bon voyage, Carter and Bill.

            That's a lovely puzzle, Carter, and I bet you'll astound the Europeans with your 'calling cards'.

            Have phun, folks .

              Carter - Your puzzels never cease to amaze me!! Wonderful job as always.
              Have fun at the film festival. I've seen the trailers to the movie too and am waiting for it to come out at the theaters.

                Thanks for the advice Linda, I may have to do that. The future bride and groom are avid golfers so I would like to do something special for them. Also I am Godfather to the bride and I'm very humbled that she asked me to do this for her.

                Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

                Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...

                Good guesses, but no. It’s very useful and “outside the box.”

                My first thought is to hold the small paint bottles, but the holes are not symmetrically spaced....
