    Hello Again,
    Here are a couple new puzzles. I wanted to experiment with color line cutting after admiring many of the finished works I've seen on this board. I'll admit these weren't the best choices for that, but I still had fun.

    These are both 7x5 inches printed on Epson Glossy Photo paper. I used 3M spray adhesive and coated it with Gloss Medium & Varnish. They are 80 & 88 pcs respectively.

    Comments and criticism welcome!

    Beautiful puzzles, Cristin....

    I like your move into color-line cutting. These pictures may not look like they lend themselves to that style, but the Fish certainly does. There are all sorts of shapes in the water that can be used, and you've taken advantage of quite a few of them.

    One of the sort of "myths" people seem to have when they first get into color-line cutting is that pieces should, at least generally, be the same size. Who says????? If you're going along color lines some may be large and some may be rather tiny. If they have to be too small, I've sometimes packaged them in a separate little box within the mixed-up puzzle pieces (as in a puzzle called "Squaw Council" I posted recently).

    Good work!!! You family will treasure these for a long time!

          Great puzzles and cutting of them. A 1955 Buick Roadmaster. My Mother had the same car and I just loved "borrowing" it from time to time.

                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
