4. Cut around outer profile (see picture below).

5. Separate the pieces of puzzle by cutting away sections in the following order: first, cut off roof/top section (see picture below), then, cut apart three sections of body. NOTE: Do not push or crowd wood into the blade. You do not want to force the blade to the left or right, nor to the back or front. Keep the blade cutting through the wood perfectly straight up and down. This ensures the puzzle pieces can be easily separated and reassembled.

6. After cutting all pieces, remove patterns (see picture below). Touch up imperfections and soften any sharp edges with sandpaper. Finish sanding all surfaces to desired smoothness. (Refer to Project Finishing on page 18.)

7. Apply colorful acry lic finish by thinning acrylic paints with water and smoothly brushing onto wood, following the grain of the wood. Allow one side of the puzzle to completely dry before painting the other side. Puzzle will probably require several coats because wood will absorb a great deal of the paint. (Refer to Project Finishing on page 19.)

NOTES: Paint adds thickness to wood, so keep paint thin on sides of puzzle that fit together

Remember that projects meant for children should always use safe nontoxic finishes.
