  • 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

    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.

        Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

        OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
