      Some folks do notepads out of paper, some cut metals, some cut corian, you can cut coins and antler. You are only held back by your imagination and the thickness of the project.

        I've cut various woods, brass, copper, sterling silver, sticky note pads, and acrylic. I'm sure there are other things, but those are off of the top of my head. Each material has it's own technique, but these forums are a great help when you want to know how to cut something. The chances are that someone here has already tried what you want to do and will be happy to help.

              Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
              • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty
