Simple Santa Puzzle

Simple Santa PuzzleJust a few cuts produces this simple but fun Santa puzzle

This freestanding Santa puzzle is easy to cut and easy to finish. You can literally cut and finish one in less than 30 minutes.

Start by attach the pattern to the blank. Cut around the outline of the puzzle with a #5 reverse-tooth blade. Then, cut the pieces. Sand off any rough edges, and apply a finish. I used a clear finish on one. I painted the hat and coat pieces of another with red acrylic paint, and then applied a clear finish to the entire piece.
