  • Team Work Puzzle

    stepping beyond cutting up scraps, here's a trial run on a puzzle. My 5 year old daughter colored it, I stole it and glued it to 1/4 in pine and sprayed it up nice and shiny. It's kid size 14 pieces. I put it in a little rubbermaid container and wrapped it up to surprise her at christmas.

    Kids love that sort of thing, especially when they had a hand in the creation...I'm learning this more and more each day.

    As a side note my daughter is trying to turn to the dark side, yesterday she asked me when could we get a lathe like they have at school.

        just day, she'll be showing her kids your first puzzle that you made for her and telling the story on how you stole her picture and made a puzzle out of it and opening it up on Christmas morning when she was 5...

            BRAVO----BRAVO-----She will cherish that for the rest of her life--believe me it will tickle her Christmas morning and it will give her a hug from you ever time she puts it together-- a more presicous gift could not have been found..
            PS.. I see she is quite the budding artist also

              Really cute, Jeff, she's going to love it.

              And that is a good coloring job, too! She's taking after the old man for manual skills.

                That's great fun!

                I cut a couple of small puzzles yesterday for presents for friends I saw today - the subjects were a little saucy so I won't post them here - but it's such fun to see people's faces when they realise you cut it yourself especially for them.

                  Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                  • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                  Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
