    Hi folks.....

    Here's a 360-pieces puzzle that's just about as intricate as I can cut 'em. It's an ideal calendar picture with lots of little images within in. I have sharpened the photos below to try to allow you to see the piece outlines as much as possible. I have flipped the back of the picture so it fits with the front.

    This one is cut from 1/4" oak plywood from Wildwood Designs. It's easy to cut and quite strong, but you can see from the back that occasionally it will chip slightly. My final Christmas card puzzles (I have 81 done) are made from this oak.

    Have phun.........Carter

        I actually tried my first puzzle cut the other day, the only way i could get a piece to lock in was to use

        I will try again oh great puzzle master.....

          Spectacular, Carter, maybe even the best yet!

          Not too many chips, really. You could peel off a layer from some scrap, and for each patch, cut the patch and the puzzle piece together for the best fit, sort of like laying carpet. Then glue on the patch and trim with the saw.

            Another wonderful piece Carter. I love the overall picture. You have forgotten to tell us a very important piece of information! How big is the finished piece?
            Thanks for sharing

              That's one heck of a puzzle, I'd hate to be the one assembling that. Congratulations on another great puzzle.

                Picture size

                Marsha, most of my pictures for puzzles come from calendars. The finished puzzles are roughly 11 x 13".

                Pete, you're right. The few chips are so small they're of no concern. Most all of them are caused by some errant movement on my part while cutting.

                Thanks for your nice comments. They make it all worthwhile.

                    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                          Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                          Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                          HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
