  • Shape Shifting Scroll saw puzzles

    Hello I was posting information and pictures about my puzzles back in 2008.

    I have been busy creating this kind of puzzle ever since. My puzzles have no pictures rather they are abstract patterns. Assembly depends entirely on shape recognition, to see where an individual piece can fit correctly.

    I am not sure if I am doing this right so any feedback here or to me email address ([email protected]) would be appreciated.

    Do you cut out the pieces then paint them? Those are really great!
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

      These are fantastic John. I remember liking them when you posted them before and these ones are even better.

      I assume you draw out an 1/8th of the pattern and then duplicate it like a kaleidoscope?

                  These puzzles are supper..... I have not seen your previous posts on this type of puzzle. They are supper and I really like them. Is there some secret method to create these puzzles? How many have you made? How long does it take to cut them? Who assembles them? curious minds are asking?

                      I also would like to know how you create the patterns. Those really look good.

                        The first thought that popped into my head was "I don't know what you're doing but whatever it is ~ don't stop!"

                        Those are some fantastic patterns and puzzles. What you are doing is simply wonderfully creative beyond belief. I love it!!!

                          I love the puzzles. They look like a challenge and I like challenges. I agree, some more information about how you create them would be great.

                                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.

                                He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                                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...
