Hello,

I am currently building a large container puzzle. I would like to show a picture of what I have so far. After many long hours, I have three pieces. :lol: Mind you that the pieces are not finished for paint yet. So far I have only assembled the three pieces. I still have sanding, cleaning, and painting to do.

Do you like it so far? The pieces in the background are my stencils that I made as "keys" for the puzzle.

I should have this done in about 5 days. I will update it everyday with a picture until it is done.

Chris

EDIT: FINISHED PICTURES BELOW!

Very nice. If you made your puzzles in black, I would give you a hug.

Thanks. We will see. I still have not decided yet. Im sure that I will paint the puzzle white because the core is white. We will see though! Black puzzles do look good.

Getting there. I decided to round the corners because the large center pieces caught here and there. I should have it done by Monday! It will be black!

Nice one Chris. Containers can be a real pain with those sharp angles.

Thanks everyone! Your right Tony, I had to do some major sanding of the triangular pieces to allow a smooth rotating puzzle. In the end, it came out well though. :D
