The DIY puzzle stool shows off the RYOBI 6.1 Amp Variable Speed Jig Saw’s abilty to smoothly cut curves through 2 layers of ¾” plywood. These stools are great for children and can go in a playroom or nursery.
¾” Plywood Purchase at Home Depot There are many types of plywood with different laminations and surfaces. I used ¾” furniture-grade plywood with a sanded finish. I had 12” wide scraps left over from another project, but if you are going to buy plywood I would recommend doing it at Home Depot and having them cut the plywood into strips that are the width you want. A single 4’ by 8’ sheet of plywood cut into 12” strips is more than enough to build 2 puzzle benches.
Screws Purchase at Home Depot 1¼” wood screws are ideal. It's possible to use longer screws and connect multiple pieces at a time, but you have to be careful to avoid gaps.
