Puzzles, First in Decades


It’s been decades since I’ve made any wooden puzzles. I found one that would use scrap wood and was fairly easy to do. Very relaxing and easy to do with my table saw, surfacer, and crosscut sled. Sure was nice to get back to working wood and not just writing about it.

Finished the series of articles, so I’m not writing anymore. Oh well, allows more time for actual woodworking, and that’s what it’s really all about.

I want to make some puzzle boxes as presents but haven’t found any that work for me. Any suggestions?

These are cool, good idea to make these.

Puzzles are just wonderful to make.
Job well done.


Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

Thanks, everybody. Still trying to figure out the cube and dowel puzzle. I think I have a handle on it, though.
