Step 1

Spray mount to panel

Begin by selecting a template for your puzzle. You can create one of your own or download our design on the Getting Started tab. Once you have your template printed or drawn out, spray mount it to your MDF panel. Tip: Before mounting your template, cut your MDF board to size. You can accomplish this cut quickly and easily with a Dremel Saw-Max and fitted with a SM500 wheel.

Cut along template lines

Secure your Moto-Saw onto your worktable and lock your wood and plastic cutting blade into place. Set your MDF board under the foot, lower the foot of your tool and plug it in. Turn the Moto-Saw on and cut along the template lines, cutting through the paper and MDF.
