Nice. Did you design the puzzle, or did you have a pattern?

cool fish scott, I like the fish within the fish you use a scroll saw to cut the pieces?

hi Rikkor. I did have a pattern but quite honestly, I’ve had it for some time and have no idea where it came from… guess would be “wood magazine”.

Great idea and great job on it, I caught the fish within a fish also, before I saw popeye comment on it. Great work.

I think I have seen the pattern in a book “Wood Magazine: Scroll Saw Patterns
It was probably in the magazine before it was in the book, but I am new to the magazine so I don’t know.

It is a Wood mag pattern. I have it in a file cabinet with about 15 years worth of mags piled in there with it.

Great job on the cutting and painting. That is an attention getter.

I am ready to start this fish puzzle project and have a few questions about the color finish. You state you used an airbrush. What type do you use and how hard is using an airbrush to cover an entire puzzle piece including the front, back, sides and inside parts? I am trying to find the best way to do this since aniline dyes are quite expensive.
