Using the patterns printed in the March 2011 issue of Wood Magazine, I brushed up my scroll sawing skills and created this puzzle from hardwood scraps. The species of wood used included walnut, mahogany, poplar, zebra and cherry. The woods selected were used to suggest the colors and textures of the different dinosaur hides. This would be a nice gift for any child over 3 years old because a few of the 36 puzzle pieces are small enough to be a choking hazard. Because the puzzle pieces were 1/2” thick, I found it time consuming to mill the smaller scraps to the proper thickness but I’m happy with the results and hope to make more of these types of puzzles. Stay tuned…!
