    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.

                A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

                I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
