Another hobby I have always enjoyed is photography. I have thousands of pictures sitting on my hard drive. I decided I would use a few of these pictures as jigsaw puzzles. This pattern book contains the 10.5 X 6.67 inch X 126 piece jigsaw template. I have also included 10 of my pictures that you are welcome to cut and sell or enjoy for yourself. There are full instruction for setting up and cutting the puzzles. The process is simple. All you need is an inkjet printer with photo paper, 1/4 inch thick Baltic Birch plywood, 1/8" thick Baltic Birch plywood, blades appropriate for cutting puzzles and your scroll saw.
You can buy Flying Dutchman Superior Puzzle Blades at http://www.mikesworkshop.com/ Mike is a solid source for all your scroll saw blades. His service is great and the blades are some of the best you can buy. The best news is they are no more expensive than inferior blades.
You need a blade that removes very little wood so the puzzle pieces will fit tightly together after they are cut. These very thin blades are a must for good puzzles.
