Since I had recently broken my lathe (long story short: cheap lathe, out of balance very large blank, bent shaft) I was unable to turn a bowl last Saturday. Anxious to do something in the shop I remembered this little puzzle that I had ran across in an article here:
http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/bandsaw-puzzle-cubes-2.aspx
I took some old scrap pine, put on a new thin blade on the bandsaw and had some fun. It didn’t take long so I made 2 more. A little sanding and some stain gave them a nice color. They are only 4 piece puzzles but they make neat conversation pieces

If they would be all the same color kids would have lots of fun putting them back together.

I used a 4×4 post (3 1/2 by 3 1/2) Doesn’t take long to cut one. I made all 3 sanded, stained and everything in about 2 hours.
