  • Four Turtles

    Here is my latest jigsaw puzzle. This one has four turtle pieces, one in each corner. It has been cut in my diagonal style, where the grid has been rotated 45 degrees so that the grid lines pass through the corners. This means that there are no corner pieces as such - you have to build them from a pair of edge pieces. And the edge pieces only interlock through inner pieces so it is not simple to build the frame first!

    The puzzle is cut from 1/4" Baltic birch and is 9" x 6" with 260 pieces.

    Fantastic work. Wonderful detail at less than 1/2 inch per piece. Thank you for showing.

      Puzzles are a challenge to a lot of people, but well worth the result. Very nicely done.

          Thanks Antori. It would have been even more tricky if I had limited myself to using a single cut style.

          I used four different cut styles for this puzzle. Here,, I used only one cut style, and consequently the piece shapes are very similar and so don't provide as much help.

                I'm pretty sure the blade was in right. It was an 1 3/4 piece of poplar. Once I was done cutting I couldn't even get the piece to come apart out of the block. Which as I remember it, indicates to much pushing and making the blade bend.

                For what it's worth I cut an ornament out of pine and...

                My wife got the vaccine shot in 2011 and 4 months later came down with shingles. It wasn't a light case either.

                My aunt said she found a cure for shingles: She heard that rubbing Dr. Tichenors antiseptic on it would stop it. She got in the tub and poured some on. As she tells it: "When...

                I also cannot perceive making that many of anything. I just finished about 30 of the mini birdhouses and am ready to start something new.

                I also have used the alcohol and shellac method. It really speeds up the finishing process. If the surface is left a little rough, a little touch up...

                I had trouble cutting once with a new blade and then discovered I had it backwards.
