This is a holiday present for some friends that were married a few months ago (I gave them a cutting board)
I glued the 5×7” photo on 1/4” MDF, and cut it into a 35 piece puzzle, using a 5×7” puzzle template. I’m just not good enough to freehand the pieces.
To keep it all together, I trapped it in a mahogany frame.

thanks for looking

Great work!

BTW, I have done a ton of puzzles and I still use a template. ;-) I feel the pieces look better and more uniform that way.

Your friends will love this! I made similar ones for both my siblings weddings and they were big hits.

I’d say it turned out just fine…I also use a template at times when making puzzles
