HOW TO – Make a homade puzzle, or “Why I love my jigsaw”

Dmacrae writes –

Inspired by the puzzles made by Staves, I decided to try my hand at making my own with my jigsaw.

This is my third, and because I haven’t seen an instructables about how to do it, I decided i would post about it.

For this you will need:

  • A small sheet of plywood or scrap. (I used 3/8th” which was definitely overkill and cost me a jigsaw blade)
  • An image that you want to make into a puzzle,
  • A jigsaw,
  • A few extra blades,
  • Spray adhesive,
  • Creativity,
  • A little bit of patience

I got my jigsaw to do simple work with aluminium, using it as a cheap alternative to a bandsaw. besides needing to frequently replace the blades, it has slowly won me over by being able to cut tight curves and by the smaller kerf size(more on kerf later).

    Would be nice to use pictures of family members and make them a personal jigsaw, sally :)
