Inspired by Russ ( who was in turn inspired by Olegas ( I did a couple of Olegas’ hedgehogs (more prizes for Kids Church).

I then found a picture online of the moose (I think there is a book of these puzzles that I have to get), so I retraced it and did that as well.

I was worried that the kids may find the puzles too easy, but I watched my neighbors (two adults) take about 10 minutes to solve the hedgehog, so I don’t think I’ll worry.

All done with Incense Cedar, and finished with Danish Oil (my first time using it).

I also sowed little baggies out of an old sweat-shirt to keep the pieces together. That’s in the last picture.

Nice work AdrianT,

These puzzles are not always as straightforward as many of the interlocking rectangular cardboard pictured jigsaw puzzles. No two pieces are of the same size or shape and there is no picture to function as a guide. Even for seasoned puzzlers they can be tricky. My mother-in-law needed thirty minutes to get Olegas’ Hedgehog puzzle together.

The moose pattern you cut is a Judy and Dave Peterson pattern from their book “Animal Puzzles for the Scroll Saw – Second Edition.”

If you really think the puzzle will be too easy or hard for someone, you can alter the cut lines to make more or fewer pieces as the situation requires. I have a great niece who just turned two and I’m going to make Olegas’ Hedgehog into a three piece puzzle for her.

P. S.: If you are interested, that Peterson book also has a Noah’s Ark puzzle in it.
