These “Line ‘Em Up” puzzles were designed by Steve Good and shown on his “Scrollsaw Workshop” website. They were made from re-purposed damaged cabinet doors and drawer sides. They were Laser Engraved using a NEJE Laser Master that was also previewed on Steve Good’s website. The NEJE Laser Engraver is affordable and really opens up new craft possibilities. The sides were cut on a table saw and the center cavities were cut using Steve’s pattern with a band saw and scroll saw. The 3 pieces were then glued together, sanded and finished.
The last 2 pictures are jigs that were made to help mass produce the puzzles. One jig allows you to repeat cut the base pieces and the other allows you to cut off 5 1/2” long pegs quickly. The drop offs from the first cut are used to make pegs for the next puzzle. The peg sides are then routed using a 1/16” round over router bit.
These were made to be give-a ways but if demand picks up, I may try to sell some.
Thanks for viewing this project.

Ivan, thanks.
The interesting part is watching people try to reassemble them.
People with analytical minds tend to solve them very quickly.

Cool way to do it. This is actually the second one of these puzzles that I have seen today. Thinking about making a few for my table.

CtL, I used Steve good’s pattern to size everything and it worked great.
