  • Puzzle & Color Line Cutting...

    I wonder how Carter's puzzle would turn out using his color line cutting technique on an image like this... Puzzlus

    One can only wonder or speculate.

    I'll speculate.

    Given the puzzle has 260 pieces and there are 13 across the one completed edge which accounts for 7 photo puzzle images, we can infer that there are 20 across the longer side with an estimated 10-11 photo puzzle shapes (estimated 70-77 photo shapes). Given Carter's line cutting mantra and one of my favorite finds (Only 64 puzzle pieces, BUT... : Scrolling - Scroll Saws - UKworkshop.co.uk) I'd imagine he might split each photo shape into 3-4 cut pieces putting the puzzle in the 210 - 308 piece count. Of course he might dismiss it as not attractive enough or too obvious.

    Here's hoping I haven't offended him or overstepped any bounds.

      I find both examples fun...I was especially interested to see in carters posting on the UK website he actually has his pieces coming together at 4 corners which he is always saying try not to do that...LOL Both are devious puzzles and as he says...PHUN!

        I drool when I look at it. First I would not cut it the way it's depicted. I would cut right along the lines of the squares but might have two or more pieces within each square. Here's one that's cut right on the squares and I have about three others that are somewhat similar to your example, maybe with 100 squares and about 250 pieces.

        Great Phun!

          WOW!
          I think I would go blind just cutting that one.
          You must have great eyes.

          It's all fun

                If you follow the link in my prior post you'll find out that this puzzle took Carter's wife ~5 hrs to put together. I say that makes this 64 piece puzzle extremely devious. I think I might have just flipped all the pieces over and used the grain.

                Carter, was this cut from ply or book end pieces glued together. I think I see the reflection line horizontally in the middle. On second observation, maybe I'd just give up. Did your wife have a reference photo at least?

                  3-ply Cherry, King. Yes, she did have a small 3" square picture to work from. I always include such a picture with my puzzles. If people don't want to use it, fine, but most people, especially children, use it and like it.

                      Carter, your wife is a jewel for working all of your puzzles. The two of you make a great team.

                        Carter,
                        It is pretty amazing that you recognized that the pattern would be really quite easy to cut and yet make a sophisticated and challenging puzzle. Kudos!

                          If you color line cut the puzzle from puzzlus, it would probably be quite difficult. There are lots of hints in the interlocking tabs as it is now. If you did an exact color line cut tere would be no clues and the puzzle may go together in multiple ways.

                            I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                            I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                            Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                            One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                            I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                            Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                            If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
