Pentonimo puzzles from twelve different types of wood – gifts for my Grandsons.
These were a real challenge for my skills at the time, I used a machinest file on every edge to get every piece exactly right. Making the boxes I decided to rout the inset after gluing up. I did this with the maple frame on the wrong side of the fence and plunged the bit in! I know, dangerous and risky, but I didn’t know any better. Now I would do things differently, live and learn.
The wood used is: Cherry, Red oak, Ash, Black walnut, Black locust, Poplar, Vertical grain fir, Pedauk, Hickory, Maple, Bubinga and Yellow heart. The base dimension is 7/8” +/_ 0.010” and 1/8” roundover on all edges.
