One last project before the weekend. I made this for my husband, who is even more of a nut about cats than I am, if that’s possible. I found the free pattern here, and hand traced it in Illustrator to get the cut lines. The whiskers are actually tiny boxes so I could do a vector engrave.
I cut it three times, out of the three Proofgrade hardwoods (maple, cherry, and walnut), so that gave me three puzzles with a different mix of cats in each. Each puzzle cut in less than 7 minutes. On the walnut, I was not getting enough contrast in the eye area so I put a dot of paint there.
