    I did this photo for my brother who is an avid fisherman. I cut it out on B.B. Plywood using F.D. Blades Two-Way cut #1 and New Spirals#1.I drilled @126 holes and it took me @ 4days to cut.This was my most challenging portrait so far,but I learned to take my time and s-l-o-w down and not be in a rush and it was very enjoyable and relaxing.All comments are always welcome.

    Question about P-20

    You did good Bronco, Great job on cutting and photo.
    I do have a question about your P-20. I have had mine for a good while and I always have had problems keeping the blade in the bottom clamp, flats or spirals. The machine cuts great when the blade stays in. The blades when it comes out has a curve in it like it was bent and a slight twist but not at a sharp angle. I have tried to reduce the pressure holding the blade and it comes out faster. I have replaced the clamp just recently so I know it is "Operator error" Do you have the same problem and fingered it out yet or is it just me. I do not have the same problem when I use my Hegner.

      Bronco, that is very nice but I hope you're not talking 4 eight hour days. Next time, please crop a little tighter so we can get a larger picture to admire. Where did the pattern come from? Yes, slowing down definitely helps. I finished a pheasant the other day that required 215 holes. There is just no way to properly rush things. My biggest problem is that when I do have one that takes a lot more time, I tend to get impatient and a little tired of the same piece of wood so I start pushing the wood a little harder. This is not a smart thing to do. This is when mistakes happen.

      Keep up the great work.

      Chuck, if you have a high priced Hegner, why bother with a Delta?
      Just curious is all.

        Thanks Chuck and Mike for the kind comments.
        Chuck:
        I don't have any problems keeping either spirals or flat blades in my blade clamps,however when using spirals I have to bottom feed because once I FINALLY get the blade to stay in on the bottom clamp I don't want the frustration of trying to get it back in again,I have no problem with the top clamp.I think it is my doing.My spirals come out bent on the ends also.
        Mike:
        It took me 4 days working @ 2-3hrs per day.The pattern came from Creative Woodworks and Crafts Magazine March 2005. I too get impatient and tend to push too hard also thats why I limit myself to 3to 4 hrs at a time.I will try to make the image larger and put it in the galleries section.
        Happy Scrolling.

            Bill, you did a great job on a great pattern! I'm sure your brother will love it!!

            I have the same problem from time to time with my blades doing what you describe Chuck, it's only on the twisted spirals however and not on the flat end spirals that I have experienced this. Don't know why either, cuz it isn't a constant problem, just on occasion.

              Bill, that one even looks better. Now your talent shows thru a little better. But next time, use the cropping tool to isolate the photo from the background.
              It looks like you have a comfortable couch though.

                    Great job, Bill!
                    The second picture is great - I can see how it took all that time - great art can't be rushed!
                    You have a lucky brother.

                          Mike, the reason to use the Delta P-20 is that it is normally top feed which is easier on the back, neck, etc. I use the Hegner for most every thing except fretwork and I do use it when the P-20 is being contrary The hegner was the first really good saw I got, and the reason for that was four 8's beat a full house.

                            Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I am thinking of trying a Zafino pattern maybe after Christmas presents are done and I am not rushed.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
