Project from the Past

I am not writing this weekend.  Just too much going on.  Instead I was reminded of a project I did about four years ago and decided to share a few pictures of it.  Here it is:

3D Spaceship Puzzle.

3D Spaceship Puzzle.

Yup, it’s a rocket ship puzzle.  It stands about 12 inches and is on display in my living room.  Last week we did a little furniture reshuffle and I had to move this one.  It’s made from 3/4 inch thick cherry and was cut on my scroll saw.

Here are some other pictures:

Putting together one side.

What looked like with the pattern glued on.  Yes, two space people live in the ship.

I’ll be writing more next weekend and have a new marquetry project that I’ll have a picture on Wednesday.

Till next week,

  3. I love that. I can think of so many people who need one as a gift. Maybe not a spaceship… Do you make those puzzle boxes?
