  • 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?

        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.

                      WOW, that is a GREAT price! Enjoy it. I have a Grizzly 10" and while it is not a 16 / 32, I am extremely pleased at its ability with small pieces and 10" and narrower boards, of which I have a large amount. A drum sander that works is absolutely worth it.

                      I do the same as Quartz and have good success. With that approach, it is very important to get that bag closed tight or you will be washing the material to get it back dust free. (Yep, I've been down that road)

                      Some of that discontent was targeting wood magazines in general and favoring online resources as a more targeted way to get what they are wanting. But I think what is missing is that online resources usually just supply the pattern, not the step by step techniques and other "Conversations"...
