  • 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.

          I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

          I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

          +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

          It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
