  • Waterfall Puzzle

    Got this idea while attending the 2014 show and finally got it completed.
    12 layers, 182 pieces, some figurals, some of the layer "frames" (dark outside) are in one piece and some multiple pieces.

    I was talking about doing this to a guy I was fishing with and he said there is a spring in Missouri that has outlets on an upper and lower level and drop between them. Hope he can find a photo of it.

    I really like that, Wayne!

    The concept is similar to some of the stuff Chris Yates likes to cut. What makes this design stand out, I think, is the irregular outside edging on the "tray(s)." It really gives it a sedimentary rock appearance, I think.

    What kind of wood did you use? From the bottles in the background, I'm guessing you used acrylics?

      Unique to say the least. Nicely done.

        I love the 3d-ness! The waterfall is brilliant.

        I may need to steal this idea and extend my koi pond into multiple pools.

          Great job Wayne,
          Your cutting is really nice, how long have you been cutting puzzles? I too like how the sides look like stone.

            Wood was 1/4 inch birch. Yes, finished with acrylics.
            Guess I need to clean up my backgrounds in the photos.
            Details of three of the layers have been attached.
            Been making puzzles for a couple of years. Scroll saw set there for years without much action because I was trying to work with too thick of wood. Finally set down and learned how to use it. Now my favorite piece of shop equipment.

                Very cool, well executed too. Congratulations on leveling up.
                Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

                      Unless you have a newer model that has the articulating hose than there is just one hose from the bellow to the top arm and the air is blown from under the arm. Now maybe someone jury rigged something to use as an articulating hose to bring the hose in front of the arm and just coupled it to the other...

                      End of March? Ha!
                      This is all of the basic structure right now. Once I get in to all of the what I call 'gingerbread', I'm sure things will slow way down. That'll be about this spring when I'll cover it with a sheet and wait until next fall.

                      I have a 22 V with two white airhoses. One goes from the bellows to the top arm. The other blows air on the workpiece. It came undone and I can not find out where to connect it.
                      The bellows has one hole for the hose that goes to the top. The second hose is larger in dia and will not fit the...
