Awesome job on all of them. You'll sell out for sure. Where did you get the pattern for the squirrel? I know a couple of people who would love them.

The squirrel puzzle started off as a 4 piece kids puzzle from one of my pattern books and I added several more pieces. Also it is not apparent from the pictures the squirrel puzzle also is more difficult to put together than you might think. I with all deliberateness cut it so that it is not just a slide the pieces together type of puzzle but made it so you have to make assemblies of some of the pieces and that they all do not go in to the puzzle from the same side, just to make it a little more challenging.

Nice job on the puzzles. The finish is excellent. The moose is just too cute and should sell quickly. If I may ask, what do you charge for your standup puzzles. I have several that I am bringing to a sale in July and am ambivalent about what to charge.

Depending on the size and complexity and wood used I price them from $12 to $35. It is a little low but if you go into EBay or ECrater and look for things like this you find them there at about this price range minus the shipping of course.

DW,
Which mag issue did the moose come out of? I'm pretty sure it was in one of the mags. I've cut it before but sold out last season. I had forgotten all about it. You did a nice job on it.

Good luck at the show, DW. I suspect you will do very well, given the quality and variety of your work.

They all look very nice! Even though it is a business card holder, my girls would love the moose as a toy. I would love to know where you got the pattern too.
