    Hey Karl, nice job on the video with Hans. There are far too few videos out there with that type of good information. There will be a lot of scrollers get help from it. Again, nice job.

    Thank you, I enjoyed the Hans Mier Video
    Could you give me the Web site So I can view it again. If it is not on the web could I buy it? I learned more in the 2 hour video than going to 3 craft fairs.

  • KTDESIGN says:

    Thanks. You can find the video on my website at

    You can download RealPlayer ( a free program) to copy all videos from the internet. Just Google ‘download RealPlayer’ and the link will come up. I use this program fpr all my video downloads and it has a very good reputation. I will do a video this week on how to download the program.

    Hi Carl, Just watched your video on making puzzles. Very interesting, thanks for all your videos. Back to the puzzles. I have seen somewhere that you should point the blade teeth up while using this face down method. Is that correct?

  • KTDESIGN says:

    Yes, but only for this method in the video. Most puzzle making require the normal ‘tooth down’ position. Thanks, great question.

  • Robert Santorelli says:

    I am relatively new to puzzle-making and have benefitted from your site. I have had some success with transferring art (photographs mostly) directly onto wood using a matte gel technique; anything I can produce with a laser printer is transferrable this way.

    I use the local office supply for color photography; so far I have limited myself to puzzles that are 8 x 10 inches or less. I dress the board by brushing on a decoupage medium (I have had good results with Mod-Podge) and then I cover the face with blue painter’s tape before I ‘attack’ it with a scroll saw.

    The results are certainly more rustic than a nice print properly affixed to a board as yours are, but a good result nonetheless and appreciated by the gift recipient. With a cell phone camera and laser printer, an event can be converted into a puzzle quickly and inexpensively. (Allowing for drying time between coats, snapshot-to-finished-puzzle can take as little as two days. It is engaging to children and it doesn’t cost much when they make mistakes.

    Thought I’d pass this along in the event you think this might prove a good way to teach your art form.
