  • First Try at a Puzzle

    I have been scrolling for about 3 months now. I have mainly been cutting out names and some small stuff. This is my first attempt at making something like this. This is the pattern that was in the magazine. My wife seen it and wanted me to cut it out of oak or hickory but I used a pine board for my first try. 3 of the letters have been stained. I am very slow at this but I am learning. Thanks to all the tips here has got me a long ways. I know it is not perfect but my first attempt. It took about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to cut. Should it take take that long?

        Very nice. I am still very new to scolling, so I am seeing something new virtualy every day, who'd have thought you could make a recognisable Palmino(is it?) from a word.

            Thanks, It just seems like it takes me a long time to cut things out. But I run my saw pertty slow and take my time. If I run the saw to fast I have a hard time staying on the lines. Sunlion my wife has a quarter horse that is a paint. He is brown and white. Close to a Palmino.

              Speed is not important. Very nicely done.

                  very nicely done for your first puzzle...i cut at what speed feels comfortable for me, sometimes slow, sometimes fast depending on what i'm cutting and how intricate it is ...who cares how long it takes....it's hand crafted and thats whats important.

                      Just Wondering...

                      Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                      With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                      I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                      Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                      I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                      If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                      Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                      Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
