  • SW standup puzzles

    Here are a couple pics of the standup puzzles I was requested to make for a vendor in Oatman, AZ. Cutting was a breeze, finishing, not so fast. LOL
    I used 3/4 poplar for the puzzles.

        Thanks, Bob, they are cute aren't they? Not my design, the tiny sticker on the bottom or the original says "made in Taiwan" .

        Vendor friend found the puzzle at a garage sale and brought it to me to see if I could make some for her to sell. I used thinned water-based acrylics. Then, after a light sanding, I brushed on a light coat of water-based wipe on poly and sanded lightly to smooth all the surfaces.

                Thanks, glad you all like my puzzles!

                Jan & MJim, I don't know how many I will end up making, depends how these sell. We are at the tail end of the tourist/snowbird season, so sales might be slow.

                If she sells these quickly, I'm sure she will ask for more.

                  Cute puzzles Nancy. Just like here in the Islands...anything that will remind the folks they were here for a visit, sells.

                    Nice puzzles . Any thought re incorporating the name Oatman in the puzzle at the base or as an arch or part of the outer shape?

                    I know some people will by something with the name of the town or establishment they visited.

                    Gets a little more complicated, more time and the price goes up. So much for that idea.

                            Not to take away from your good looking works, but isn't this some one else's pattern? I'm sure if it was changed around you'd still have a good looking product you could call your own.

                            Just my opinion.

                                I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

                                by Linda In Phoenix
                                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
