About this Product

Our puzzles are made with maple or poplar, cherry, walnut and oak pieces. The box is made from a Baltic birch bottom and black walnut sides.
I have been making these wooden puzzles for over 50 years. Children who got these puzzles are now giving them to their grandchildren.

People often call these quilter's puzzles because the patterns are typical of quilts.

There is a trick (so to speak) to making all of the different patterns. See if you can figure it out. If you can't I will share the secret in an email. The large puzzle has 32 pieces and can be arranged in hundreds of symmetrical and asymmetrical patterns. Pictured are four symmetrical patterns.

The oak squares are 2" X 2" X 7/8". The box is 10 3/4" square.

Meet the Maker

I have had a love for woodworking all of my life, from helping my father in his garage shop, to turning my first project (a walnut lamp) on a lathe in Middle School shop. In college I helped log dead wormy chestnut trees and build an a-frame house on the top of a mountain in western North Carolina with Robert S. Brunk. A few years later I moved back to Barnardsville and lived in a geodesic dome next door to Bob, who by then had become quite well known for his furniture making and the handicrafts of the southern highlands. I apprenticed him and learned a lot about the properties of wood and the art of design. I also learned to appreciate the beauty of highly figured wood.

I started turning professionally in 2009.  I built a website and later joined ETSY.  I have had both of those venues ever since.  I have just joined goimagine in 2023.  Since 2009, I have made and sold over 3000 bowls, platters, puzzles and cutting boards.  I have shipped them to Asia, the Middle East, South America, Europe and North America.  

My wife Pennie spends most of her free time with our four kids, their wives and husbands and our eight grandchildren but still finds time to help in the shop.  Her main jobs these days are keeping my shop organized, an impossible task, and finish sanding puzzles and cutting boards.  She helped me build the shop and did most of the work on the walls, insulation and wood racks in the new addition.

My Great Dane, Oscar,  is becoming a shop dog.  He likes the shavings and the air conditioning.
