  • 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.

          Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

          We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
