Turtle, Fish and Bunny Puzzle

Use a power sander or hand sand the wood on both sides. Cover the wood on one side with clear packaging tape to provide the saw blade with some lubrication as it cuts.

Attach the pattern to the packaging tape
with spray adhesive. Alternate method using carbon paper, trace the patterns on bare wood.

Using the 1/16 drill bit, drill a hole on the
cut line for insertion of #9 saw blade. Do this in a inconspicous place, like a small radius curve. One hole for each figure.

Insert #9 saw blade through the hole and saw
the individual pieces. Sand the individual pieces with fine sandpaper to smooth any imperfections. After the wood is nice and smooth, apply the paint. Be careful not to get too much paint on the edges that mate with the board.
