Thanks Tweakie.....and does the puzzle come with instructions.....with an illustration of the solution ?
I'd like to give a few as Christmas gifts..to my boss and some of his friends. I'm afraid they would go nuts without the docs. ::)

Hi RC,

Would this be OK ?.



Tweakie’s Jigsaw Puzzles Inc.


INSTRUCTIONS
Carefully remove all the pieces from the box and arrange them as shown in the diagram. Slide each piece, one at a time, in the direction of the arrows – lifting to engage the tabs - in the corresponding cutouts. The finished puzzle should have no gaps and be perfectly square in shape. Enjoy.

WARNING
This puzzle should not be given to children under the age of 20 years and even then supervision by an adult may still be necessary. Do no allow the parts to be eaten as it will spoil the puzzle and make it difficult for others to complete.

That should do nicely......providing they are SUPERVISED ! :D
Might also mention a "Choking Hazard".
Some of these guys get their foot in their mouth and choke on it regularly. ;D
Thanks Tweakie,

Teak, being a particularly oily wood, does not take too kindly to double sided sticky tape - so I thought that the vac table would hold it better. Unfortunately the teak blank was not flat enough and moved during the first (particularly savage) cut. Luckily the through hole (just below the letter E) can be easily filled and the job was completed on the reverse side using double sided sticky tape after all. Let this be a lesson to me.

This is nothing special but I thought you guys may like to see the photo's.

A really silly thing.

First the engraving in Trafolite then profile cut to shape. Pocket milled the pencil then inset the piece.

Has anyone done anything more useless than this ?.

Thank you Tweakie but in truth is all down to software, all I did was press the big green button.

Agreed, VCarve is an amazingly easy software but YOU put the design together and as simple as it may be, it's just beautiful and very very thoughtful as well -  :)
