  • Bon Voyage Ocean Liner Puzzle

    Ok, it's not a real ocean liner, but I think it captures the idea of travel on a ship. I cut mine out of 3/4" pine. After designing the puzzle on paper I took it to the workshop to do my cutting, as I do with all of my puzzle designs. Lucky thing I did, because I noticed I forgot a couple of the keys. But I fixed up the pattern so that if you choose to cut this you should have no problem putting the puzzle together. Hope you enjoy it.

    I think it's a great little puzzle, but it's a dead ringer for a tugboat rather than a liner.

    It looks as if the piece that supports the wheelhouse and the smokestack has no locks beneath it and is just resting on the base of the boat. Is that what you mean when you say you forgot some of the "keys"?

      Looks like a tug to me too. I see where you added the keys on the pattern but the one on the front looks like it has a weak neck and I think the one in the back has too little wood on its bottom. I took a copy and will see if I can adjust those two.

        Al, I adjusted the tabs between the cabin and upper deck on the tug. I think they are stronger now. I plan to cut one in the next few days. I hope you don't mind what I did.

          It is supposed to be an ocean liner, but the perspective is a bit short. Perhaps I should have made the body a bit longer. Your keys work fine, too.

            Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. 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
