Wooden crocodile puzzle – Croatian 30 letters Alphabet and 1-30 numbers on other side. Two sided table dimensions 86×35cm. Puzzles were made of 15mm beech, coloured with primer wood paint, than two layers of water base paint (with brush) and finish with two layers of water based laquer (with brush).
Table was made of 9mm birch plywood, firwood frame, base layer is 3mm beech playwood. Crocodile shape in plywood and puzzles I cut on scrollsaw. Letters on one side and numbers on other side, my bussines partner made on laser engraver. After painting, I coloured letters and numbers grooves with thin black felt pen, before laquer, to make them more visible.

Very cool, Ivan. I may have to make something similar for a learning tool for the little ones.

Cheers, Jim

You teach me something new all the time Ivan! I had to look up the alphabet! Now I am confused… Without letters q, w, x and y, there are a lot of words that I would have to ‘quit’ using. I was going to make a ‘xerox’ copy of the list but the machine ‘was’ gone and so were ‘you’!

I even went to YouTube to learn how to pronounce the letters!

My former wife was Serbian American but I don’t think she knew a single word of the language…

mikeacg….it is very similar except Serbians use cirilic letters primary , besides latin…but language is very similar.
In Serbian alphabet called AZBUKA letters order is totaly different than in Croatian alphabet.
