This is a Sheila Landry design. I made it for my niece’s 2 yr old. I think the design is perfect for that age, he can begin to learn something about numbers and colors while solving the simple puzzle. Sheila has the plans for scroll saw, I don’t have one but I was able to make these on the bandsaw w/ an 1/8” blade and relief cuts on the inside curves. Pretty simple but elegant toy, I think. Thanks Sheila. The wood is poplar. I made a box for them too, also poplar w/ an oak lid. Link to plans.
