  • A Hard One.....

    Here's The Treehouse. It's probably the hardest to assemble puzzle I've cut in a couple of years. I say this before my wife has tackled it, based just on putting together 30 or so pieces as I cut them.

    It's 5-ply, 1/4" poplar, 10.5 x 14" and probably just over 300 pieces. It came from a calendar sold at a local arboretum and there are a few other pictures that, should this one be well-received, I'll try in the future.

    Have phun..... Carter

    That does look challenging.

      That's a great puzzle image, with lots of shadow and light, variations ofgreen, and different textures.

        As usual, an awesome job. I love the image and of course the cuts look first rate!
        I'm so jealous that you are done cutting your Christmas puzzles - I've finished about 30 and am about 1/2 way through. I will need to begin cutting earlier in the year next year...

              Wow Carter! You put the moves on that one!

              That ol' cabin's probably wondering how it's still standing!

              I love it!

                Another hit. Let us know whether your wife agrees. She seems to work your puzzles in record times.

                    by Ennobee
                    After earlier this year I went through my books and got me a score of images of vintage sailing ships(*), I keep in finding new ways of making plaques with this designs. After trying my hand at segmentation, which kind-of worked, and multiple bevel-cuts,
                    which I still have to keep trying until...

                    Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...

                    I was shocked, yet most appreciative, of the surprise I found in the mail today. I am truly thankful for the friends I have made on the board.
                    We are a small group, but I feel we all would jump in a second to come to the aid of each other. This is my electronic family.
