  • Magnetic puzzle

    Somebody ask me to do a magnetic puzzle.
    I buy a sheet of magnet with a PSA adhesive on the back.
    I glued the sheet behing my 1/4" BB and start cutting.

    The magnet sheet cut well but the side of my puzzle piece have some black marks on them. I try some blade but I always get some black marks on the piece. I would like to have a 100% clean side...

    I'll also try to stick the magnet after cutting my piece but I've pass a long time clean cutting the magnet with my X-acto....but the result was perfect. Long, very long...but perfect !

    Do you have any experience with magnet sheet ?
    The one I have is a 0.20 mil rubber sheet.

    Bye !

    i have experience and the black marks are a product of the material that the magnet is made cure for that!!!! could try painting the sides of the puzzle pieces with black paint, using a paint pen....but that seems time consuming......later

      Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

      Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

      Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

      My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
      I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
      Was it a good idea.....?...

      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...
