puzzle 3: forest / mountain scene from a generic 2008 National Parks calendar

piece count: 90

date cut: 12 Jan 08

notables: signature piece; bear; bear drop out

disposition: mine

This is the first puzzle I was proud of - I believe it was the first thing I posted to the Scroll Saw Workshop “brag” page.  At this point in my puzzle-cutting development, I attempted to put all sorts of special pieces into my puzzles, probably to the detriment of my basic skills.  I inserted a figural and a drop out.  I placed the meeple piece in the corner, cut interior edge pieces, and made some of the edge pieces  indirectly interlocking.  It was probably all too much for a cutter who needed to practice cutting normal pieces.
