This was a Holiday & Wedding Gift for my Brother and his new Family, who were married only a couple of months ago. I got copies of the wedding pictures and picked out a really nice picture of his family taken only minutes after they were wed.

The picture was mounted on solid 1/8” thick cherry and cut into a 64 piece puzzle using the scrollsaw. The puzzle itself measures 5×7 inches.

I then made the box out of a solid piece of walnut using Steve Good’s plans using the scrollsaw as well. I made a few changes to his design, but kept it pretty simple as I wanted the puzzle to be the focal point. The box is 7×9 inches and around 2 inches thick. I lined the inside bottom with blue felt and finished it with spray poly and a few coats of wax. Some stick-on cork pads on the bottom finished it off.

Of course the puzzle was apart when I gave it to them – had to make them work for it! ;-)
