    Hello Carter, No...you are not chopped liver...sorry about that! Anyway you talked about Baltic birch dulling the blades quick. Is there another type of ply that would work that doesn't eat up the blade fast, that maybe I can purchase locally? I did find 5 ply baltic birch at a plywood company near by $32.00 for 4 x8 sheet. What are your thoughts using 1/4 red oak 3 ply? Thanks, Vinnie

    Carter, for those of us who can't afford 5-ply plywood for puzzles, is 1/4 inch MDF a good alternative?
    Thanks, Bubba

    Hi there Carter! I was introduced to you in the last publication of Scroll Saw Magazine where you displayed your wonderful skill of Christmas card puzzle making...I absolutely fell in love with it and went out and bought a scroll saw to begin doing this myself...thanks for the inspiration!

    So here's the hard part; in reading your article in depth I think I understand the process... I adhere the image to the plywood with tacky glue and then spray with triple thick clear glaze ... and after it dries I begin cutting away...I appreciate the freedom in doing it without any pattern...

    I went out and bought 1/4" birch plywood because it was all I could find, as opposed to your poplar which you prefer...do you think that's okay to use? Why do you prefer poplar over birch?

    Finally, where do you get those beautiful images from that we saw in the article? (the snowman with all the birds, etc.)

    Thanks for any/all feedback - happy scrolling!

    Hi John
    I have never tried this type of puzzling.

    I posted about photo puzzles, I was sent to the puzzles board.
    If you look on the posts you may see mine. "Puzzles"
    Looking on the puzzle board I have not found the answer that I need.
    The info that was given regarding gluing down the photos is there
    - Gluing Spray the photo and the board, let get tacky , stick and roll out the bubbles.
    I use 3M Super 77 to put down my patterns, would that work as a perminet adhesive.
    - Top finish on the photo paper is all I would need.
    - I will be using BB plywood.
    - Now comes the dump question, if you use a cutting pattern over the photo how to stick
    It without harming the photo? Or do you forgo the pattern and just cut in a orderly fashion.
    Anyadives you have will be apreshated.
