  • 4 name puzzles

    So I have 2 big birthday parties for my cousins 4 kids tomorrow and I decided to make them puzzles instead of buying just another toy. The first 2 are 1/2" Poplar and the second 2 are 1/2" Red Oak. (Boy was that tough to cut!!) Thanks for looking!

    You are just doing a little bit of everything. Nicely done and they will really like them. Do you care to share the font name please.

      Thanks! I got on Word, looked at alot of different fonts, and settled on using Impact font. Then I used insert word art to get the outline. When it came up on my page I just made it as big as I wanted it...adjusted the character spacing so that the characters overlapped slightly and printed it out. I did the puzzle pieces connectors free hand while cutting out the letters. More fun!

        That's pretty cool and they will last forever, unlike just another toy! Don

                Nice presents, nice cutting and thanks for the explanation. 1/2" wood seems just about right for those.

                    Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                    Welcome! John! From Reno NV. A long time 788 user (I'm94) I'm sure you will get many happy hours from the repairs you placed on the machine.

                    I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
