  • 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, https://forum.scrollsawer.com/forum/...angular-pieces, I used only one cut style, and consequently the piece shapes are very similar and so don't provide as much help.

                How long did it take to cut? Amazing.

                  The cutting itself probably took around 3 hours. The preparation work, finishing and box-making added about the same.
