  • USPS Stamp Puzzle making challenge

    Hi all:

    Just for a puzzle making challenge, I found this link for a set of stamps the US Postal Service is going to publish in September 2006

    http://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/stor...egory_rn=13401

    Florida Wetlands This could be a sheet of individual stamps that make up the full picture. Could be great fun cutting this one out.

    I printed that one out just on plain paper and it comes out beautifully in 4" x 6" size.
    I'll bet it's just a matter of time before Carter prints it out on high quality photo paper and make a freehand puzzle with cutting around and putting tabs on every bird and animal in it.
    If it can be done , Carter is the guy that can do it.
    He might even freak us out and do the same thing on a regular postage stamp size of it .

      Hey, Phil....

      I've seen those montage stamp sets before and there have been many themes. I've never tackled them because there usually is too much of one color in the background (in this case, green) and the individual stamps don't have sufficient images to turn on my interest. I guess I'm just getting complacent in my old age.

      Here is a four-cent stamp. Now I can say that I made a Chippendale Chair with a scroll saw.

        New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

        It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

        Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

        I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
        on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
