made this for my wife. SHE has a basset hound thats HER baby so of course she loved it. this is the second thing i have made on my scroll saw

i got the pattern from a picture i saw on the web and printed it out. im still learning what blades are best for what type of wood, this is made out of hard maple and it was kind of a pain to cut. not sure what im doing wrong. i do see the need to get some plain end blades as im just using the pin style right now til i get some

Great Job! I have made similar puzzles and they are fun and always popular. Check out for blades. He is great to work with and his blades are top notch. They are all I use.
