This is the same puzzle that I described earlier [link] except that the wood and form are different. My brother enjoys puzzles, so I thought I’d make this one for him as well. The wood is probably white oak. I found a chunk of it in my hardwood scrap bin.
I wanted a different shape, so I traced an oval and drew lines dividing it into quarters. I made the central hole just below center and made the cut outs on the sides with a Forstner bit, all before I cut out the shape on the band saw.
I sanded it to the line on the belt sander and rounded the edges with the router. The finish is boiled linseed oil. I test solved it, so I know I did it right.
