  • Big puzzle

    I have been making puzzles for a while and I decided I wanted a big puzzle project.I always used pictures for the puzzles,but I thought I would try painting instead.I am not a painter so I had to research what I was doing and it turns out it is called abstract painting.I start out with a 12" x 12",5 ply 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood board.After painting I connect them to each other with dovetail joints.I started this project in May of 2019,to date I have 2 rows almost complete and it measures 12 1/2 feet wide and I'm not sure how high it will be.I am about to start the third row soon.I now have 3866 pieces done.I hope I can get pictures on to show you

              That's amazing! Doing something "just because" is a great thing. Please keep us posted on your progress.

                Still working on this puzzle.My goal was to make it 10,000 pieces.Today I got to 31/2 rows and 5,000 pieces.Don't know if I can get it to 10,000.
                My neighbors still think I'm nuts.Maybe they are right.

                  I'm impressed by your efforts. Maybe someday you can have a record holder in Guiness Book!

                    I have friends that own a Gallery in our village, Their expose are primarily very different abstract artists, and I do mean abstract.
                    Crazy stuff like shreds of fabric or paper slopped together and priced at 6k.
                    Your work would put them to shame!

                      Our Hospitals also declined to receive toys in December .In fact they gave us back about 1200 of them that they had in storage. We found three new (to us) charitable groups to give them to. The pattern was given to me by a friend along with others. I have modified the pattern since and now have...

                      The fish puzzle is turning out to be a bit of a challenge. First I had to copy it. Which took sometime due to its size. Cut and taped together. No wood long or wide enough in my stock. Copied at 75%, cut and taped again and gave Bruce 2 boards to glue up. Hopefully, will be clear “sailing” on the...

                      That is really cute. You’re lucky you were able to give your toys away. Bruce’s club had to store everything. One of the hospitals finally called them for toys. They still have over 3,000 in storage....

                      Sure did. I had a stack of receipts to take to my office, and when I picked them up the blades were under there. I have my blades in containers mounted on a peg board. I didn’t even knew I had this pack until I started cleaning up....
