Thanks for sharing. Mine is on the way.

I don't display many of my puzzles, but break them down and re-do them every decade of so (except for the 5,000 piece puzzle - I don't think I will ever do that one again - I found my limit!)

Maybe at your Costco, Deb.  Not here.  We're in the sticks.  Ours has a gasbar, which drives fuel prices down in the entire city, but is basically just a store with very little in the way of extras inside.  Just "stuff".

Assembly has slowed down.  Approaching 1/2 built now.

All the pieces are starting to look the same now, LOL !

FUN !

I bought spray varathane today and then once (built) and dried we'll flip it and put it on a foam board on the back afterwards. I guess.

Where to hang it?

As you can tell, puzzles aren't my thang'.....

Laminate them.
Take it to Costco and they will laminate it for you. 
we have the Monte Carlo 37 Mini puzzle laminated and it's really nice. 
No glass. this latest puzzle is supposed to resemble a poster when complete. 
Ordered 3. 2 arrived one more is on it's way. Asked for 10 and they were able to order 9... coming in September!!!!
Puzzle are very popular at our club raffles...

Don't have any other built puzzles around here so am curious about what folks do when they're done?

My wife says we should (spray) varnish it, then flip it over and glue it to one of those foam Bristol boards kids are using these days
for their school projects.

Thoughts?

With the Ceaco 550 piece puzzle available a couple years ago around Christmas - it was 24"x18".  I found a frame at Walmart for it and hung it on the wall.  I believe I have a couple of these puzzles available.  This new puzzle says +/- 26.8"

x 19.3" so you could possible modify one of their poster frames to fit.
