A Puzzle - Clogs

My mother in law asked me if I could make a puzzle for her mom who loves a good jigsaw. You can’t really say no to your mother in law without implications so off I went. I looked at a few a few pics I had and settled on a pic of some clogs that was taken in Zaanse Schanse - The Netherlands. It is most famous for its windmills, but there is a small clog museum there that demonstrates how clogs are made. It is fun.

I cut the puzzle on non pg birch plywood as I don’t have any chip board or mdf. I tried to use some transfer rite to reduce charring, but it pulled the ink from the picture so I just cut it face down with nothing. It helps that there is a lot of brown it the picture so any charring hidden. I just used a can of glue spray to fix the pic to the board. It all seemed to come tighter ok.

There are also a few special shapes in the puzzle, but I forgot to reverse them so the came out correctly when you turn the face of the puzzle back up. OOPS.



Oh well. I am going with it. Will see what the Mother-in-law says!
