I’m not sure if there is any project that brings more pleasure after it leaves my shop than a jigsaw puzzle.
After buying a scroll saw, I was soon making jigsaw puzzles from 1/4″ plywood. As fun as they were to make and assemble, I soon began experimenting as I do, and started cutting multi-level 3D jigsaw puzzles. To date, I have cut thousands of puzzle pieces on the scroll saw dd(and even a dozen or so with a manual fret saw).
If you’re interested in learning how they are cut, check out my article in the latest issue of Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement: Make a 3D Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle. There are some good scroll saw tips in the article as well.
Not interested in making your own puzzle? I sell them too – they’re a great gift idea. Click here to shop.

I love wooden toys and puzzles. Anything that doesn’t need batteries! I love this puzzle and really want to make one for my kids
Jig saw puzzles are one of the most pleasant and inevitable childhood memory for most of us. The process of learning how to create one would certainly be equally pleasant. I look forward to learn and create one with your guidelines and support. Thanks for inspiring.
