  • In The Details

    I was working on a puzzle a few years back with a Mayan theme, yesterday I was looking at a photo of it's back when I noticed a detail I thought was worth sharing. When cutting a whimsey with hair like or really thin protrusions, we just simply cut those protrusions off, but sometimes those hair like details define what the whimsey is.
    In the bottom right hand side of the picture there is a snake (not a worm) because of that detail of the tongue. You can add cut lines to adjoining pieces to make those fine details and when the puzzle is put together your whimsey will make perfect sense. Also this puzzle had a fantastic double "S" border.

        Interesting concept. I'm curious why the difference in thickness of material. Shouldn't it all be the same material?

        I Bought a system from Geiger solutions about 3 years ago. It is very different

        from what he sells now. I prefer the older system pictured here. It set a specific didtance to the grinding wheel, compensating for wheel wear (a non issue with the CBN wheels) The new system is probably easier...
