  • 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.

            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...

            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
