  • Long Snake puzzle

    After completing and turning in the Snake Puzzle article for the spring issue I decided to take the puzzle to the next step and do a long puzzle out of dowel rods. You can flatten the bottom of a dowel just a bit and shape the snake head and tail just like you do in the article but then you have to free hand cut the puzzle. This one here was made out of 3 3' dowels and is over 7.5' long.

      Bob, this one isn't coming apart by me. I have donated it to a class at my son't old high school that helped me test my article last spring. This one has about 150 pieces to it. It does have a nice grain pattern to it. I have started painting some of the puzzles.

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

          I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
