    Marcel....Those animals in your picture are friends of mine and they're having a party without me! Thanks

    Mike..... this one took a total, I think, of just under seven hours at the saw, spread over a week or so.

    Simply amazing, Carter. I wouldn't attempt this in my wildest fantasies. How much time do you have in this puzzle?

    500 pieces! Knowing you, Carter, it probably came out on the button right off, without any fudging. Your cutting is like clockwork. Pardon me for remarking on your consistency yet again, but it is extraordinary. Show me any piece of that puzzle, and I'd know it was yours.

    Here's to another 500!

    Jeff, it's a picture from a calendar, as are most of my puzzles. It's glued on the 1/4" plywood with Aileen's Tacky Glue. You can see some other puzzles of mine at

    That's an amazing puzzle. Is it a photo glued on, or is it painted then cut out?

    Congratulations on the 500, Carter.


    I don't know how you manage it, but your puzzles keep getting better and better. Every time you post a new one, I ask myself how you can possibly beat it; then you post another, and take your art to new heights.

    Yes, Theresa, I flipped the image horizontally before I posted it, meaning that it's bass-ackwards from the way it appears when you look at it, but it's a great deal easier to identify images and pieces this way when comparing it to the front picture.

    (If the above paragraph makes sense, I'm amazed!)

    Fantastic Carter!! What a milestone for you!!!
    Now - do my eyes deceive me?? "Antiques" is correct on the back? Or is that what you mean by the reversed back?

    You asked for it....

    My 500th puzzle: a double event because it has 500 pieces! (my previous "record" was 438). No one has put it together yet, but I imagine that it will be pretty difficult with the small pieces. (The whole Susan Winget calendar picture is only 13" x 10.5") It's made from 5-ply poplar and cut with a total of three Flying Dutchman 2/0 puzzle blades.

    I have sharpened the following photos of the front and reversed back so you hopefully can see the pieces.

    As always, I welcome comments and questions, either through this forum or if you'd like to email me at [email protected]

    Have phun.....Carter
