Where to begin?
In 1996 I was in Montreal at the Bonaventure Craft show. I saw these beautiful wooden puzzles that I will never forget. I wish I had bought one becasue I have been thinking about them ever since. Anyway, I decided then that someday I wanted to make wooden puzzles. It wasn't long afterward that I told my boyfriend (now husband) about them and he told me about scroll saws. A few Christmases later I had my own scroll saw and have been cutting puzzles ever since. Here is a picture of my first ever puzzle. I didn't know anything at the time so this puzzle is made out of fir plywood (not a good choice for many reasons). One of my daugters scribbled over it with a crayon too so it looks kind of funny.
