  • 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.

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

            I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
