  • 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.

                  I checked out We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                  Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                  He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver.

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
