All of our wooden puzzles are created from original art specially crafted so that each puzzle piece is an interlocking figure whose only location clue is its shape! Each piece is itself a small work of art. For example, our elephant puzzle contains 54 pieces, each piece being a unique, charismatic elephant. Every piece is skillfully hand cut by the artist one at a time. We cut the puzzles from 1/4" hardwood plywood with a scroll saw using a very fine blade. Once cut, the pieces are hand-sanded and assembled into a finely finished wooden frame.
