So my boyfriend and i scored a scroll saw off craigslist and we've been having fun practicing with it. He went and bought a bunch of woodworking magazines and found a kids puzzle pattern in one (i can't remember the name of the publication for the life of me and i can't find the magazine... i know it's here somewhere though!!) So he did 90% of the scroll work- i got to fiddle on some on the mountain pieces, and i painted them. We still have an elephant, lion and a couple of trees to do, but i couldn't wait to post the two finished pieces here!

thanks for looking:)

**** new pieces, new paint:)

so we decided to not make the lion and a tree into puzzles... the nub things that interlock are super tiny and the we're afraid the MDF board we used will break, and that's not a great thing to have happen when you have a 2.5 year old who loves to chew on things and a 5.5 month old who *also* loves to chew on things in the house! so we just painted the cutouts instead and coated them with acrylic finishing spray. voila!

This is great my son is really into puzzles and loves ones like this as they become something.  We have a craft fair in Penshurst SE UK in early September and a guy there does puzzles similar to this and makes a fortune.  Such a great skill.
