Natural wood puzzles
I design and create unique puzzles that highlight the natural beauty of wood. Some puzzles are free-standing and generally based on animals. Some are jigsaw puzzles where the natural features of the wood serve as the picture. I cut each puzzle by hand using a scrollsaw. For the free-standing puzzles, I start with a profile image, use the anatomical lines of the animal to determine the puzzle pieces and choose woods and grains that suit the coloring of the animal.
