I've just made my first free standing jigsaw, from the Judy & Dave Peterson book "Animal puzzles for the scroll saw". Great fun to make, but requires a lot of concentration to cut the pieces accurately!
I'm now working on one for a friend who likes bats (the flying kind, not cricket bats!). I've found a pattern on Pinterest and cut out the basic shape, but it's quite tricky working out how to cut the pieces, as the aim is to be able to pick the puzzle up without pieces falling off!
The puzzles are assembled flat on the table/board, and can then be placed vertically, as shown.

Well, my first bat prototype proved to be a bit of a flop! With a change to the way I cut the parts out, it worked a bit better! The final version is in Basswood, with an oiled finish. It was a hit with our friend, as a Christmas present. D75_1611.jpg  DSC_6966-Pano.jpg

While working out how to cut the pieces, I also made a framed, lay flat, version, for my grandchildren. I applied some wood stain to make the picture stand out, as well as indicating which way up the pieces belong!D75_1520.jpg

Looking good Tom. I really like the plan you used for the dolphin.
