Bob Coltrap explained and demonstrated to WWCH club members how he designs, creates and makes puzzles using a scrollsaw. Bob uses Baltic Birch plywood and sometimes 1/4 inch MDF.  A pattern can be attached to the pre-cut puzzle with Elmer's washable glue - but let dry one minute before attaching pattern.  Examples of his work are featured below.
