    Intertwined Circle Pattern

    After I cut this pattern, I started to wonder what it would look like if I "Freed" the pattern from the outside coin. I don't know if it is better or not, but I like it. I pictured the before and after.
    (I tried a marathon session to try to finish most of this in one session, so the cutting started getting a little sloppy as I fatigued and started to hurt. If I ever do it again, I'll cut it over days instead of hours.

    There are 62 cuts in the initial design and cut on an Eisenhower. This is somewhat of an optical illusion, your eye might immediately see flowers inside of circles, but if you looks closely, the whole pattern is just interwoven circles.

    That is amazing. I can't imagine cutting something so intricate.

    Very nice work and I don't see anything sloppy about it. Not sure which version I like better. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Looking good Randy! Yeah I don't see anything there I would consider sloppy. I can tell you I don't believe my old eyes and hands could do what you do. Thanks for showing us.

    You've outdone yourself again, Randy. That's a really nice cutting job. Like Carole, I wish I was as sloppy as you.

    Gee, I wish my sloppy cutting looked like yours. 😁. I love the intricacy of the design, and admire your constant pushing the envelope. Truly a treat for the eyes.

    Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way. Where does the responsibility of the maker of an item end and the responsibility of the purchaser begin? My sealife puzzle is purchased by older people due...

    I was afraid some of my puzzles would not pass the test, but they did.. (I have some that I sell that would not (they are from the magazine) so I am not going to make them for sale anymore as I am worried about sales of those.. Maybe the magazine should have a statement of warning of small pieces if...

    Which is why I quit making toys. I used to make a lot of wood toy cars & trucks with the 3/4", 1", and 1-1/2" wheels. I, also made a lot of wood toy trains. Everything was made out of hard woods and really glued well.

    And it makes no difference if the kid that get's them...

    Then the puzzle in this issue would not be for children under 3 due to the 2 small pieces. I don’t paint. I don’t put wheels on things, most of my kids puzzle pieces are too big to fit in their mouth. It’s that “one” that will get you. Thanks for printing excellent info. Guess I’ll just...
