  • 4th of July Puzzle

    Happy 4th of July everyone!!! Here is a puzzle I made for a family activity today. I had fun with the figurals, though I ran into some issues with the tail of the kite. I'll have to keep practicing... The puzzle is roughly 9x12 and made from Walnut hardwood.

    Great job, Matt! I love all of the false edges compromising the kite string.

    On the kite tail, you just had to make the tail a little wider. I went through something kind of similar when I was sketching out the kite figural for my Spring 2014 article. You want it to look representative of the object, but not too delicate and fragile.

    Usually when I sketch up a figural, I will just keep going over the thin portions with pencil, letting them gradually broaden, until they seem adequately thick and sturdy.

    Great job on the puzzle, though.....I like the concept, theme, layout, and picture, and you did on nice job on the cutting.

          If we do it right, you shouldn't notice any differences but it will be much better on our end. We have another change planned that should perk things up for all of you--we just have to do this one first. Considering that every kid on the planet seems to have a website, it's surprisingly challenging...

          I have missed three of these farmers markets this year but my average gross sales this year are more than double last years average. Maybe I need to only go there every other week?...
