  1. Miss Lilly's Cheetah Puzzle and Custom Box

    Lilly is my neighbor's five year old granddaughter. Lilly really likes cheetahs. Her grandmother told me she also likes jigsaw puzzles, so I combined the two ideas and made her a jigsaw puzzle from images of cheetahs. I added a custom box, painted and lined in her favorite colors of pink and...
  2. Simple Puzzle....or is it...hmm

    Just finished a very simple wooden puzzle. It was quick and easy to build. Thanks to Junji for his post. I made 2 from some left over Purple Heart but most any wood would work. I have also made from Pine and Maple. The 2 intersecting pieces of wood are locked by the dowel pins. To put the...
  3. 2 Ring Puzzle

    Just finished a couple of stocking stuffers. The 2 ring puzzles are very simple and quick to build and they are fascinating to solve.
  4. Kids Puzzle Stool, wedged tenon legs

    My wife and I are attending a baby shower this weekend, and as usual are bringing a homemade gift. I've posted these before so I'll spare the construction details. The top is 2 layers of 3/4 BB, legs are 1-1/4" oak dowels set at a 12 degree angle and wedged in. Finish is Minwax "natural" stain...
  5. Camel Scroll-saw Puzzle for 2 year-olds

    I recently saw a neat camel pattern in one of the scroll sawing magazines. I won't re-print the pattern here, because pattern authors get upset if you share their patterns. However, if you Google Image search for camel scroll saw, you will find many free patterns for camels. You can probably...
  6. How To Make / DIY Dolphin Puzzles

    I was away on a trip a few months ago and got a lot of nice video of dolphins that my 2 boys really enjoyed watching! They asked me to make them something dolphin related so I decided to make some simple jigsaws. My oldest son wanted a realistic looking design and my younger son wanted something...
  7. Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

    Kids have so many toys these days, it's very hard for a grandpa to know what to get for a five-year-old's birthday. My solution is to make something for my grandchildren, and give them a little cash along with that so they can buy whatever toy they might want. This year the gift is a jigsaw...
  8. M.C. Escher Image Jigsaw Puzzle

    This puzzle is FINALLY finished - I started on this around a year ago and just finished it a few days back. Not that this SHOULD have taken that long, but I always had "something better to do". I think we all have projects like this, right? First off, thanks go to Adrian Iredale for the idea...
  9. Quick & Simple Puzzle

    Well due to a procedure I am suppose to take it easy for the next few days, so no workshop time even though I have a 5 day weekend :(. But I hate to sit still and have nothing to do. So I went intot the shop this morning and made this within about an hour or so, a little longer due to the fact...
  10. Block and Pin Puzzle

    A co-worker dropped off a small (key chain version) of this puzzle on my desk. I looked at it and thought with only 7 pieces, this should be a breeze. However, I soon found the puzzle very challenging due to the number of potential wrong solutions and the required order of operation during...
  11. Number Puzzle

    Number puzzles for the grandchildren. Cut out with my CNC. Pockets are 1/8" and the numbers are 1/4". Everything is Baltic birch. There are two puzzles on the board. On one side are the english names and on the other side is a different language, in this example Norwegian. A couple of...
  12. puzzle

    another waste of 7 nails lol
  13. Mahogany Block in a block

    When looking up some plan ideas this winter to flush out the list for my next 30 projects in 30 days challenge, (the third, and final chapter to be concluded this fall) this nice easy one from Steve caught my eye. Looks like a puzzle, but it isn't. - nobody believes it isn't a puzzle, so they...
  14. 2nd chair I made

    another project I've already posted but did'nt do justice to it with one photo. I turned both front legs and mortise and tenoned the rest. Finished with polyurithane. I also burnt the ivy in the back of the chair which was fun
  15. Bandsaw "Puzzle" Box II--Triple Nesting Set--Amboyna (Narra)

    I can't believe I didn't post this sooner. So life goes… I made this as a wedding gift for a couple of my friends. It's made of Figured Narra, also known as Amboyna when it's in burl form. It's based on the same principle of construction as described here. I learned this technique firsthand...
  16. Wood Pin Puzzle

    This is a fun puzzle that is pretty easy to build. The goal is to have all the pins line up in a horizontal manner. The pins are different lengths and the holes in the base are of varying depths. In addition, there is a slant to the base which adds another level of deception. More Info / Build...
  17. Moose Puzzle

    This is an older project that I just got around to posting. I made four of these for Mother's day earlier this year and since I gave them away as gifts I will be taking pictures of them and posting as I visit their homes again. They are all different. The first is a moose (the most elaborate)...
  18. Child's Rocker

    The design for this rocker was given to me by Sam, a woodworker in Port Alberni, BC, Canada over 20 years ago. The patterns sat around in my locker for 15 years before I decided to make one. This is a puzzle design that has no nails screws or fasteners of any kind. I have built 3 so far and each...
  19. Challenge Accepted

    20 Days ago I posted a completed Dollar Bill Puzzle. I received what I would call a "Challenge" from a few folks to do a double sided dollar bill puzzle - Challenge Accepted, Accomplished and even Increased! :-) This puzzle has five more pieces than the last - a whopping 50! (and the crowd...
  20. Newton’s Gravity Defying Puzzle

    This puzzle was dropped off on my desk last week. The "rocket" is placed in the cup. You must remove it without dumping it out or using tools (paper clips, tape, etc.). The problem is that there is no place to grab the rocket. How do you get it out? See video at the end if you can't figure it...
