A former schoolteacher and librarian, Judy Peterson found her niche in life as a woodworker. She bought her first saw in 1990 and, within the first six months, was cutting and creating her own designs. A winner of many design awards, Judy now sells her puzzles at science fiction convention art shows around the country. Together with her husband, she has written numerous articles for Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts. In her spare time, Judy reads, keeps track of politics on TV, gardens, cooks, turns bowls on her lathe, puts together other people’s flat puzzles, and plays duplicate bridge. Fox Chapel Publishing published their first book, Dinosaur Puzzles for the Scroll Saw, in 2002, and their second and third books, Fantasy & Legend Puzzles for the Scroll Saw, and Animal Puzzles for the Scroll Saw in 2005, Zodiac Puzzles for Scroll Saw Woodworking, and Making Wooden Dinosaur Toys and Puzzles (a revision and expansion of book one).
Dave Peterson is officially retired after a career in programming and systems analysis. His interest in computers, databases, and spreadsheets makes him suited to run the record-keeping side of Judy’s small business. In his spare time, he reads, plays duplicate bridge, and tries to keep up with his wife.
