  • Something Fishy!

    hi...i shot these images at our friends house on keuka lake (one of the finger lakes in NY favorite place, with great wineries) this summer....they are metal wall hangings and i thought they would make great puzzles, very colorful....

    i named the puzzles #1 and #2 - for lack of a better name...the border is cut following the outline of the metal are the two original images, followed by the puzzles....they measure about 5x7 and i don't have a piece count yet...and as always that pesky silver fox is hanging around trying to get a piece of the fish.... always criticism and critique are welcome

              I think one of the most phun things about this hobby is seeing something that you know will make a great puzzle - and then cutting it! Good stuff. Bob.

                Beautiful pictures and cuttings Bob. We have a cousin who lives on Keuka Lake. It really is a beautiful place.

                  Great puzzles, Bob!

                  I hope the fish don't get hooked, like you're hooked on puzzles.

                  Okay.....that was bad, but I'm trying.

                      Bob - if there was ever a puzzle that would like great with Shawn's multi-dimension layering technique, these are it. Have you thought about applying that to these puzzles?

                        ok John...I will definitely do a multilayered puzzle.....great idea!.....

                        and Shawn....don,t give up your day job for the comedy

                            Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                            Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                            Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                            Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
