    I haven't had much cutting time lately but I'm never far from puzzles. You might enjoy:

    You may recognize a Liberty Puzzle or a Carter Johnson. If you are really sharp you might see Dee's influence!
    Cheers,

    Wow! That's quite an article - and quite a collection - and quite a lot of work.

            Hi Joe,
            What a great article! I love your tee shirt. Maybe you could bring that $2.00 puzzle to the parley, I'm sure a lot of us would love to see it. That is if you do not have it locked up in a safe. I have one of those little Catter puzzles, it one of my favorites. In your statement above, could Dee's influence be in puzzle 38, that little pop up man? Isn’t it amazing how a tiny little tab at the bottom of a figural can change the whole dynamic of a puzzle? I wish we had more time at the last parley to sit and talk to each other, maybe we can this next time.

              You noticed! I was experimenting with your idea; I want to incorporate standup figures in my Christmas cards this year.
              I have been asked to do a presentation at the next Parley. I haven't locked down the subject yet but that puzzle would fit in to a couple of different topics that I may cover.
              Looking forward to seeing you there!
              Joe

                Hi Joe,
                We are also giving a presentaton this next parley, our subject will be on our hand painted limited edition "The secrets of Oz" but it is very hard for me to speak in front of so many people, so I think we are going to try to do a video , then I will take any questions when it is over, That will give me months to get right what I want to say. I have been working on an idea sence the last parley and we will be launching it in the next few weeks. It is by far the most challengeing puzzle I have ever worked on, I'll show some pictures when it is ready.
                We look forward to seeing you at the parley also. hopefully we will have some time to chat.
                Dee

                    I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
                    I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

                    Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

                    Reply to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
                    by millwab
                    I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
