  • White on White puzzle

    I am photographically challenged, so I don't have a lot of puzzle pictures. However, the recipient of this one very kindly sent me some photos, so I thought I'd share these. Occasionally, I like to show that I DO make things.

    This puzzle is 8" X 12", 148 pieces. That's the doggie's name on the left side, and the snowflake is a signature piece. I seldom use my 'official' signature piece.

        Hot dog. You can cut something. Very well, at that. That is a great little puzzle, as far as I can tell. I've never attempted a puzzle, but this one looks great. If that was your winter project, I can't wait to see what you cut in the spring.

          Great puzzle!

          I like the conservative cut as well. I find it quite hard not to go in and out for another tab as soon as I have cut one.

            It's going to be a, ah, um, ah... a puzzle.

            I really ought to try something else.

                  Great Phun, Pete.....Nice puzzle pieces.

                  Note the similarity between that dog and my Lucky, pictured with my name. When his hair is cut a little he looks like a bigger version. Another difference: In a couple months Lucky will be 17. At 40 pounds, that's pretty amazing. He can't see or hear hardly at all anymore, but he still bites the vacuum cleaner and monitors the washing machine, so all is well.

                  Keep it up!

                    Carter - Yes, I had noticed the similarity to your pooch. What kind of dog is he? Both look to be very nice animals.


                    Thanks to all who rated my piece shapes favorably, as they are a constant source of self-criticism. I am more comfortable cutting smaller pieces than this size (1.5 per square inch, supposed to be 1.25). With smaller pieces, you can get by with only 2 or 3 interlocks and have more interesting looking pieces without risking a poorly interlocked puzzle. For these guys, I commonly use four tabs and if I am not careful they come out looking strip cut.

                    If I have just come off cutting a small-piece puzzle (like I did with this one), it's a fight to keep the tabs and pieces big enough and often the pieces don't look as relaxed and flowing as I'd like.

                      Pete, I understand your feeling about puzzle pieces. The consolation is that absoiutely no one among the recipients or benefactors of your puzzles notices, understands or gives a ****.

                      I don't have those worries anymore, and a big part of the reason that they went away is my strict color line cutting. It forces irregular pieces, regardless of their size.

                      Lucky is some kind of terrier mix. We got him at the "pound" when he was three. He always was a great, devoted pet, but also a very aggressive dog, personally responsible for six dead possums. These days, however, the squirrels and birds in the back yard know him and cavort within ten feet or so without worry. He moves without pain, but very, very slowly.

                        So true! I've learned to ask my wife for her less involved opinion. She's stopped me from recutting a couple of times now.

                        Re: dogs, your story of Lucky's hunting reminds me of my own dog, Willey, a 12 year old shepherd mix. In his heyday, you could never catch him sleeping, a not-so-rare event these days. He was also a good hunter, and in the spring would enjoy many a luncheon of fresh bunny (yes, it was gross). Last summer, I wished I could have gotten a picture of him sprawled out in the yard with a jackrabbit sitting about a foot from his head! He did manage to catch a possum a couple of days ago, which was a big surprise.

                            What a terrific puzzle! Very unique with the pup's name "embedded" and your wonderful snowflake signature. Hats off!
