  • Bookshelf Cat Puzzle

    Here's one I just finished where I took out the background to make it more tricky. It's only 202 pieces so it should be pretty easy to put together. (Note the book titles in this painting by James Wysocki)

    The puzzle is cut from 1/4" 3-ply poplar.....freehand, of course.

    Carter,

    You've done it again

    Nice work, but I can't help wondering if the fish perch and cat whiskers are as fragile pieces as they look?

    Regards,

          I'll try to respond...

          Marcel, the pieces are not as delicate as they look. They hold up quite awhile even though they get some shaking in the baggie I put them in. You might note that I didn't cut around all the whiskers....

          And, Evie, I know it's tempting to try 3-d puzzles out of wood, but I truthfully don't see how they would work. The benefit of foam puzzles is that the pieces fit very tight, expanding into each other. Thus, vertical walls will stand up. That wouldn't be true with wood, and I can't imagine the frustration that would occur when trying to keep walls together while putting on a roof, which also wouldn't hold together. You'd have to use 1/2" wood or more, and that's not as fun or as fast to cut pieces from.....and it still would be frustrating, with collapsing roofs. I'll leave 3-d puzzles to the foam folks.

              Carter I guess I will have to take your word for it. BUT why would it calapse. would the wood swell??or shrinke??? are you talking about solid wood. how about plywood. I really think it could be done. wouldn't it be cool to try. I think i can see how the foam holds the work together. but maybe we could come up with something. I think this is a challenge, and could be done. just maybe hopeing. your friend Evie
