Yesterday Laura found this puzzel in one of her books after I seen it I asked her to make it I think it is really cool.
I picked out the woods for her and she started cutting. This is the first puzzel she cut that was not one sold piece of wood were everything fits after it is cut. She had to cut the colors to fit. The woods are Paduac/ Maple/ Purple Heart/ Yellow Heart and Sycamore. She did a great job on this one.
Thanks Dennis

Really well done, Laura! I tried cutting a zebra puzzle without checking whether the table was square with the blade. the result was the pieces would ony fit back in from the back! So, I had to make another one after making sure it was square! Your puzzle looks really nice.
