20 Days ago I posted a completed Dollar Bill Puzzle. I received what I would call a “Challenge” from a few folks to do a double sided dollar bill puzzle – Challenge Accepted, Accomplished and even Increased! :-)
This puzzle has five more pieces than the last – a whopping 50! (and the crowd goes wild).
Needless to say, I used two different dollar bills to accomplish this task as one can’t simply split a dollar bill down the middle and glue both sides to a piece of wood. ;-)
The only concern I had was how to eliminate any “fuzzies” on the reverse side while I was cutting. I did this by sandwiching the puzzle in between two thin sheets of scrap plywood – they took any damage of the exiting blade and left the puzzle totally pristine!
I used Poplar this time as it sort of matched the color of the bill.
Piece measures …... for those that don’t use these things on a regular basis ….. 6 1/8” x 2 5/8”
No finish could be applied, for obvious reasons.
I still have the offer out that if anyone wants to mail me two 50 Dollar bills – or even 100’s – I will GLADLY cut them a puzzle and ship it back to them. Only charge would be Shipping – No kidding.
