  • snow flake puzzle...whewwwww

    This is the puzzle I cut from the pattern I found on the home page. I believe it says William-Waite is the designer. I didn't follow the instructions exactly. I didn't stack cut...just cut one puzzle, a frame, and a tray, from two pieces of 1/4 inch plywood. I liked it so much I quickly cut another one. LOL I burned this one to hide the cut lines but I think I may try painting the other one.
    I also mistakenly left a knot in my frame when I thought I had carefully positioned my pattern to miss it. Oh well, that's how I learn. I'll pay more attention next time.
    If I paint the other one I'll post a picture when I get it finished.
    This was very easy and fun to cut and is going to drive someone crazy after they open it on Christmas day. LOL
    All suggestions and comments welcome.

    pieces removed

    Here is what it looks like with the pieces removed. The center piece is glued in place to limit the number of solutions to 161. Without it the number of possibilities is more than I care to contemplate.

        My nephew, (who used to give me a run for my money playing chess, at 5 years old), is getting this for Christmas...un assembled, of course...hehehe

        Great stuff Bubba...
        How did you mark the octagons within the pieces. I'm thinking of using my wood burner.....

            Those octagons are hexagons!

              Beautiful job Bubba. I have also cut the turtle teaser and grabbed a snowflake copy and will try to get it done before Hanukkah is over.

                Great job. It should give your nephew a challenge.

                  Bubba you did a great job with it. I like the burned lines better than what I did I made mine a bit too thin. I think the wider lines will make it even more challenging to put together.
                  When I did the test cut I did it with contrasting wood. There are lots of neat things you can do with this William Waite design.

                      Jim, that's exactly what I did. Carefully drew my lines in pencil then burned them in, even the perimeter.

                          I found it on the home page, the page you go to when you come to the site. CLick on the picture to the right and you'll see the article and pattern.

                          Rolf's right...there are so many interesting things you can do with this pattern.

                              I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                              Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                              We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
