  • Some stand up puzzles finished

    I made four stand up puzzles from Peterson patterns: Unicorn, Butterfly, Golden Retriever, Cow. Then I tried my hand at creating a stand up name puzzle which was part of a birthday gift for our daughter's friend.

    I used a FD UR #3, since I liked the tighter fit of the pieces and how much faster it cuts than the #5 or #7 (I get a little impatient when cutting).

    I sanded the edges with a sanding mop, but I still need to break it in a lot. I'm not able to get into some of the smaller inside areas without sanding too much off the outer parts. I'm also wearing leather gloves which is saving my skin from being sanded off (happened the first time and I didn't realize it until later), but I'm developing some small holes in the finger tips. It's also hard to hold some of the smaller pieces and not have them go flying. Any recommendations and advice would be much appreciated.

    For the name puzzle I used Hobo font which was recommended by a few members here (thank you!) and used Photoshop to join the letters and make them fuller.

          I like all of them. I have only used puzzle blades to date except for cutting the outside of a puzzle. I would have thought the #3 blade would have cut slower than the #5 or #7 based on the simple thought that the smaller blade would not cut as fast.

            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

            I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

            First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

            I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...
