  • Geometric puzzle

    Something slightly different. A two sided geometric puzzle.

    This is not that hard to solve but young children will not believe it is possible until they solve it for themselves. My 6 year old grandson thought it amazing when he completed it. This is the solution that uses the fewest number of pieces Made out of two layers of 6 mm Birch ply and one 4 mm layer for the centre section. Overall about 170mm wide

          That looks like fun! How did you cut the pieces so that you could not use the grain as a reference?

            Looks like the pieces came from the star side.
            Where did you get the pattern?

              What a great idea. I would love to make that for my grandson.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
