  • Two sided puzzle

    Has anyone ever tried to cut a two sided jigsaw puzzle? By that I mean a puzzle of something like a coin or a dollar bill that has an image on each side. I know that lining the two sides up would be a challenge. Just wondering if anyone has tried this or has any thoughts on it this.

      here. On these the placement isn't as critical since there is usually either a border defining the edge, or enough "white space" around the perimeter that it doesn't matter as long as you're close.

        I'd be concerned about the backside of the puzzle; normally I get "fuzzies" that need to be sanded down. With an image on both sides, I wouldn't be able to do that. Any solutions?

          Since I'm a pretty strict color-line cutter, two-sided wouldn't work. BUT....... a few years ago I cut a number of two-sided puzzles from fake paper money I bought at a novelty shop. They were a big hit.

          John, if you're using really good and sharp blades, fuzzies aren't enuf of a problem to worry about. I just sort of rubbed them off by flapping a damp sponge on the completed puzzle, front and back, as I always do,

            I copied 20's ,50's, and 100 dollar bills and made them double sided. I used 1/4 in. birch ply. the bills are just a little off the orignal size because the printer would not let you print the exact size, (except the $100 bill). Because the pieces are small the paper may peel a little. I carefully reglued it with a paper glue that won't show though. I coated both sides with 4-5 coats of semi gloss acrylic clear.
            I made my own design for the $20, but used Steve Good's $1 bill puzzle design for the others.

                I have two favorites, Darwin and Michelangelo's god, or Rip Van Winkle leaving and coming home. Reverse tooth blades do a great job.
