What a gesture. I did a couple while I was doing jury duty. One was a cartoon scene but cleverly the jigsaw picture was from a different perspective than the box cover picture, which made it quite challenging. I think it was 1000 pieces.

The annoyance is always when you finish a jigsaw and there's one piece missing. Everybody searches for it and eventually it turns up stuck to somebody's sock, then that person is blamed for hiding it.


Cake or ice cream? The choice is endless ...
Looks like some of the images on the picture would be interesting - might spend as much time looking at those as doing the jigsaw.

I always start with the corners & edges.
Definitely the corners & edges first. Looks like I did a tricky bit as they were neither!

I've got a Haynes Manual jigsaw of the Apollo lander which is very interesting. Also, the Ravensburger brand are good quality and have all sorts of designs.

I do lots of jigsaws, probably one to two per month. i can sometimes complete one over a weekend, some are an absolute bugger and take many evenings!
This is one I did last week, it was an easy/ fast one given the colours and "smaller pictures" kind of format.


I've failed to complete just one, it was the space shuttle taking off against a night sky, that was almost literally all white or blue / black pieces. Impossible!

Without hijacking this thread...... how do you mount a completed puzzle??
We have a nice, completed one. It is sat on a coffee table.
How do I slide that and stick it to a board so as to hang it??


De Skieven Architek... aka Penfold
Cover it with cling film first Dave, then first slide a sheet of paper under it while still on the table so that you can then slide the whole thing off the table onto a sheet of cardboard... it could still go horribly wrong [and has!]

Talk me through this and humour me.
It is sat on a heavy coffee table.
I cover it with cling film so it wont fall apart. Good idea that, thanks.
Do I then upturn it onto the floor?
How do I then glue it to the board?
Make sure you video it to give us all a laugh.

You might even make £200, or whatever it is, by sending it to Harry Hill.
