  • 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.

      First, I think you should post a pic of the entire piece! Both, front and back. Second, That is a great suggestion and design idea.
      Thanks for that tidbit. It is stuff like that which makes this 'community' a pleasure in which to participate.

        Yes I live in North Carolina but not near the coast. I live along the NC/VA border about 30 mile East of I-95. Emerald Isle is about 3 1/2 hours to the South East of me....

        Thanks, guys. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone, but how could I resist? Fortunately, I had many resources to draw on, for everything from advice on technical matters, what to include when reviewing a scroll saw, and how to be diplomatic about features that could be problematic.

        I agree Rolf, usually there is maybe one or two projects I might make. In this issue there are four or five.

        It was a fun project. I made a jig to hold the ball while I sliced it on the bandsaw, then cut the rest on the scroll saw.
        Are you in North Carolina? We just got back from Emerle Isle. Our son just got married out there.
