  • 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.

                                Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                                The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
