Wedding guest book puzzle and box for my niece, Rachel, and her husband, Lenny.

Photo one is the finished puzzle.

Number two is the photo poster from the printer.

Three is the sliding lid box. The box is red oak reclaimed from cabinet doors. The bottom is lined with velvet.

The fourth image shows the puzzle very loosely placed in the box.

Photo five shows the brass “rivets” in the corners.

The last image shows the puzzle cutter, moi, with the puzzle blank just after mounting the photo poster on 1/4” Baltic birch plywood.

Thanks for looking in, lumberjocks,

Have a great day,

Thanks Sheila. The guests and the guests of honor really enjoyed the puzzle. I just received the artwork for the next wedding guest book puzzle. Now, I wish I had plopped down the extra dough for the EX-30! I picked up a used 26” RBI, which had literally fallen off a truck, to divide big puzzles into pieces that I can cut on the EX-16.

helluvawreck, thank you very much.

Have a great day lumberjocks.

Have your say...
