  • Snowmen Puzzle

    I have never cut puzzles before, but I thought that the snowmen puzzle form Lou Paparo would make a great Christmas gift for my niece. I used the painting guide that was provided here on the forum.

    Here is my version of the three layer Snowmen Puzzle:

      Wow Donna, after seeing that, it makes me want to make that puzzle, and even makes me want to try painting, and I'm not much of a painter! It looks great.
      PS: Did you ever find the cabin pattern you were looking for a while back?

            Thanks Lance - I sure hope my niece likes it. The puzzle can be cut with less pieces to make it easier to assemble. My niece is seven, so I cut out the additional pieces. Before it was painted, I had a difficult time assembling it. So I carefully cut a few pieces and put them back into the frame

              Dale - I'm also not much of a painter. I have taken a few classes at the Midwest Trade show, which have helped me learn a few techniques. I have also watched some painting demos on TV. However I did discover that I can copy fairly well. The painting ideas came from Lou's wife, who was nice enough to share on this web site. I just tried to duplicate the painting. If I didn't like the results, I just sanded it off & tried again.

              Yes I did find the cabin pattern that you recommended. I also found a deer pattern. I modified them & came up with a pattern that was just approved by my Mom's friend. Last Friday night, I went on a little road trip to buy the wood. Now the fun starts - I get to do some cutting

                Thanks Lance - I never created a web site before, so this site has been a work in progress. I wanted something that I could expand when needed. I actually wanted to create a website from scratch, but I didn't know where to start. So I went with a web page provider and used their tool to start building from a blank page. I did not use their sample websites. That would have just been too easy

                    That is one fine puzzle. As was previously stated: I wanna do that one, now, too! You made it sound 'not difficult' and the painting is great!

                    Merry Christmas!

                      Sweeeeet project Tango, I love making those layer puzzles, but I'm not a painter. You certainly are multi-talented. One fine job by you, and being your first it's even sweeeeeter.

                        Thanks John - the puzzle cutting was easy. The painting was a little time consuming, but it was a fun challenge.

                          Thanks WD - I'm glad that I can fake being a painter. I have always been good at coping things

                                Linda,
                                Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                                In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
