Do any of you know a good source of puzzle patterns? 

My grandson into puzzles right now, particularly cats. I have exhausted all I can find via Google.  He needs more complicated puzzles than most kids his age. I made him a stocking puzzle that I had to look at the pattern to put it together. He had it together in less than a minute.
 
 
The most complex puzzles I have found are woodimals. I cut this one today.

It's cut from 3/4 inch MDF. As long as there are no thin parts it makes great puzzles. MDF is flat easy to cut, cuts smooth, and requires very minimal sanding.

Depending on his age Badbob, for a square puzzle idea you could try printing 2 pictures the same size, and make a double sided puzzle, by rotating the 2nd picture 180°.  Cutting the puzzle to however many pieces you want.  
I have done single sided puzzles, using a picture of the families animals.

Nice cuts BadBob!


Besides "Woodimals" you mntioned I find kooks from Judy and Dave Peterson a great source for this.

"Animal puzzles for the scroll saw"
"Fantasy and Legends"
"Zodiac puzzles"
"Dinousaur puzzles"

Or "Wooden Puzzles - 31 favourite projects & patterns" - the best patterns from Scrol saw magazine

If something else comes to my mind, I will let you know.
