Step 1: Materials and Tools
Wood piece the size or bigger than the picture and 1/8 thick
Step 2: Get a Pic
For a picture I usually go to Walmart and buy some calender I like and cut out one of the pictures, but you can use pretty much anything that's on paper.
Step 3: Glue on the Pic
This the the easy yet important step, all you do is glue the picture to your material( I used 1/8 inch bead board ) but you have to get enough glue on the pic, the term overkill does not apply to this step. Make sure you weight the thing down while it dries, again there is no such thing as overkill with this part.
Step 4: Square Board, and Draw Pattern
Another easy step, square up your puzzle on the table saw, I usually go barely over the edge of the actually picture just to make the edges all flush, Then you just flip it over and draw some guidelines to cut on the back.
Step 5: Cut It Out
Use the scroll saw cut it out. The scroll saw can make pretty much any turn, and this is a good way to practice with it.
Step 6: Sand
Whats a wood project without a little sanding? But with this one its easy just sand down all the edges real fast (use around 220 grid)
Step 7: Done
Now just put it together
