  • Tray-jigsaw puzzle

    Hey there, it's been a while. So I've started doing some freehand jigsaw puzzles and thought I'd post one of em here for everybody. This one has big pieces because it's going in the family cabin and I want it to be kid-friendly. Lately I've been making a tray for all my puzzles too. Makes it easier to store assembled and gives it a nice little frame. Thanks for all the helpful posts that have gotten me started!

    Nice puzzle, weasel. I see lots of places for color-line cutting of cowboys and horses next time you give a similar western picture a try.

    A suggestion on the photo. If your digital camera has a setting for no-flash, try it with the puzzle on the floor in a place that does not have direct sunlight. Then when you load the picture into your computer you can use your photo program to adjust the brightness, and contrast. That way you won't have the reflecting lights you now have. Just an idea.

    Keep it up....

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
