  • Standard Cut Puzzle

    Hello again, folks....

    Here's a jigsaw puzzle that's only 215 pieces but is rather difficult because the pieces are standard shapes and not cut on color lines. If you want to try this kind of cutting, which is quite different from my normal line cutting, my strong recommendation is to cut one piece at a time. If you cut in strips, one way and then the other, your pieces will be too uniform and you will have too many corners where four pieces meet, making the resulting puzzle looser.

    I'll post a picture of the front followed by the back.

    Go see "Over the Hedge", the animated film from Dreamworks which my son directed and which I had the lifetime experience of seeing debut with him at the Cannes film festival two weeks ago.

    As always, have phun.........Carter

      (Going blind here trying to follow your cut lines)

      Very nice choice of cutting style to go with the picture, Carter. The piece shapes are interesting, but not so crazy that it would be impossible to find the one you're looking for. This puzzle would be a lot of fun, I think.

      Congratulations on your VERY interesting recent life experience, and your son's success. Good stuff!

      Please check your message box, as I PMed you the other day to introduce myself as a wannabe puzzle cutter and to ask a couple of questions.

                Nice work

                Welcome back Carter,

                (I always wanted to say that )

                Another masterpiece on your part.

                Did you procure any base material for your hobby while in Canne? (as if you had the time) such as posters, preferably autographed, or pictures.

                How about an "Over the Hedge" puzzle?

                And please post a summary of that lifetime experience in the off topic section, we want details man!

                Respectfully,
                Marcel

                        by Ennobee
                        My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                        Hi Jim.
                        glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                        by jim_mex
                        I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
