Jig saw puzzles I make for the grand kids, I build them and clear seal seal them, my wife paints them, then they come back to my shop and I cut them into puzzle form, then seal again with poly, sand, poly and sand again, then 2 coats of butchers wax, the kids love them….

Very nice, Mark. For young children these are a seemingly endless form of educational entertainment. This lets them “play” alone or with parents and grandparents while providing them with an outlet for their pent up energies that promotes eye-hand coordination and decision making skills. I had rather see them entertaining themselves with these “toys” as opposed to watching tv or playing computer games.

Plus it give you and your wife a project in which you both can share your time and efforts (as an added benefit you can “earn” some more shop time and not get yelled at for neglecting your other household chores since these are for the grandchildren).

Thanks for the post.
