And here are the components I am going to use to sculpt my three layered, multidimensional piece.





I am going to carefully align the two girl pieces on top of the corresponding portion of the base piece, and glue them together with wood glue. Always be careful to remove any spill over with a toothpick.





Time to glue on the fence piece:





And finally, time to crack out the hobby knife again, and remove that paper from the wood.





***A special note regarding this paper cutting business: This is only required when making a piece which contains a single layer portion together with multiple layered portions. If a puzzle piece was several layers thick in it's entirety (like the elevated butterfly figurals, or the boys, in my "Snap the Whip" article) and was surrounded by interlocking single layer pieces, this would not be needed. The only time you have to do this is if, by necessity, a puzzle piece has to contain both single and multiple thickness, and this is most likely to happen if you have an elevated part of the picture (eg the fence) which adjoins with a single layer (the grass) on an edge piece.

Using an identical technique, I similarly cut the adjoining piece.....






......which fits nice and snug with it's partner.







And here is where I am at with this puzzle so far. It's starting to come together (bit of a pun there, I guess ).

THANK YOU SHAWN

Can't wait for the remaining part of the tutorial, then I am going to try to figure a way to print the complete instruction set out, and then sit down and try to cut one of these great puzzles.

BE WELL

Shawn,
This is a great tutorial. When it is finished would you consider placing this on a DVD or CD and selling it?

This is great Shawn, are you sanding as you are going along? The pieces that are being glued together that is.
thanks.

Thanks, Dee.....on most of the pieces, I find that I don't have to do any sanding prior to gluing them up. If there are a lot of fuzzies, especially on the bottom layer, I'll hit it quick with sandpaper, but I don't have to do that often.
