      Yeah, I agree, nicely done. Are you using a real skinny spiral blade?
      I'm looking forward to the final photos.

        Flying Dutchman spiral blades and a Dremel Trio on the address. I will be starting the engraving next and will use my dremel hand piece plugged into a foot pedal.

            Very nice. Can't wait to see the finished project. Are you having any trouble cutting a piece the large? I guess the spiral blades are a must for this huh.

              If I didn't have spiral blades I would have had to use my dremel trio. I have used a trio before and actually the trio makes quick work of something this size. However, the finish is rough requiring a bit more sanding than I like and in tight places that are nearly impossible to get to. I have yet to find anything that leaves the smooth finish like that of the scroll saw. Well, except for the CNC but that's no fun! And yes it can be a bit of a bear to cut at first. Yet, once you get going it runs pretty smooth.

                  Great project! Hard to believe something that large can be accomplished on a scroll saw!
                  I certainly envy your talents.
                  Thanks for sharing and God Bless! Spirithorse

                    I can finally post the completed picture

                    Well this was a long project. The customer could not decide on a finish... So it sat. And sat some more.. And sat for several more months after that... Till I finally a call on what I had believed was a forgotten project. The customer asked me to bring in the sign as is and asked me to bring a torch.... So I meet him at the shop and he decides to torch the thing and call it finished.

                    I personally have mixed feeling about this finish, or lack of finish depending on your perspective, only because I was really excited to finish it as we had originally agreed, almost a year ago. Thank God, they decided to paid me in full from day one.

                      Looks like a fun project, I'm not sure if I like the torch effect though I feel it makes all the work you put into the address portion kind of disappear. I guess as long as they paid and they are happy that is all that matters.

                        For some reason my normal trip-wire radar (sic) missed your original post last year, and I'm sorry I did. Awesome project. Not sure about the finish, but glad tou were paid before hand.

                          Great work!
                          I've been in the biz. Sometimes the customer can make us more than a little crazy, but as they say "they're always the customer".
                          Your patience is evident here.

                            Great job , not so hot on the torching on this project. I can understand why you are relieved this one is over.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                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...
