Jigsaw dinosaur

02-29-2020 03:46 AM by shawnSK | 8 comments »

A bit of an intro… I work in an office and have been wanting to do something hands-on and productive lately. My dad is really handy and I wanted to see if I have that gene too. So, before Christmas I decided to get a jigsaw and see what I could create. I settled on a dinosaur puzzle for my nephew. I have no idea if I’ll be successful or stick with woodworking, so I am using mostly a jigsaw and a Workmate in a corner of the living room. This is my first project without using my ...

Make a 3D Christmas Tree Puzzle on the Bandsaw

12-20-2014 06:18 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...

My Favorite Lunatic Maze Puzzle Review!

02-02-2014 02:29 AM by mja979 | 7 comments » From Kevin Sadler’s PuzzleMad “Burling about Some time ago, I was spontaneously contacted via Google plus (which is odd for me because I did not know what G+ was and didn’t know that I had signed up for it!) Marcus Allred has been designing the most beautiful wooden mazes for over a year now. I first drooled over his work when he posted them on the Renegades forum and received advice about crafts...

Incidental Fermat Projects #4: New and Festive

12-12-2012 02:22 PM by vipond33 | 13 comments »

Not so long ago I blew my brains out on Christmas building. Starting in mid September then I made 21 different things, for a bunch of real different people. It was worth it yes, but I was mentally finished by the end. This year is wiser, lazier and lighter with only 5 types, some 9 pcs. but good ones, mostly culled from my favourites at LJ. Here are three. As is my custom I make something for my boss each year, by way of saying thank you for letting me have free access to our shop t...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #16: X Puzzle

08-30-2012 12:11 AM by rance | 1 comment »

Someone came up with this puzzle a long time ago. I think it was Moses, or maybe Methusula. I first saw it Here on LJ. I eventually drew it out in SU. So many folks have asked for the drawing I thought I’d post it here. It should be self-explanatory. PS: Obviously you’ll need to make two of these pieces.

52 Weeks #38: Two Games finished.

10-03-2011 03:00 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So this week I was able to put some finishing touches on two of the items I will be offering up at the craft fair. My tic-tac-toe games, and some sets of Bewitching Cubes. For those not familiar with the Bewitching Cubes; I found the them in E.M. Wyatt’s “Puzzles In Wood”, the object is to orient each of the cubes so that each face shows the numbers 1-6.These three sets are made out of various woods which I forget right now and burned using Walnut Hollow Number Stamps...

Puzzles and the continuing process

08-22-2011 04:32 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

It has been a good week in the shop and that is always a good thing. I have been experimenting with puzzles this whole weekend as I have a request to make one. I played around for a day or so and have pretty much the entire puzzle I was asked to make done but need to make a frame. I want to thank Carl at for posting his video on making jigsaw puzzles. The process he uses is very easy and my sample piece I decided to make came out great. If you watch his video you wi...

52 Weeks #26: Half way there and annoying the family

07-04-2011 02:42 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Its hard to believe that this is my 26th weekly post and that it is therefore half way through the entire year of 2011. I am enjoying these posts and they do help to encourage me to get into the shop each week in order to do a little bit of something. I look forward trying more new things with each project. As to what I did this week, we went to spend a few days with my wife’s family and they all seem to like a good puzzle. So after I got done packing on Friday I took a little time in the...
