Introduction: Kids Wooden Puzzle
Here's a cool little woodworking project to try. In this instructable I'll show you how I made an awesome wooden puzzle game.
Materials needed; 190 x 190 x 5 mm plywood or hardboard, 190 x 190 x 18 mm MDF, wood glue and seven different colours.
Tools needed; Bandsaw (any kind of saw will work), clamps, disc sander or just sandpaper (120 grit)
Step 1: Draw Frame & Puzzle Pieces
Using your 190 x 190 x 18mm MDF, draw out the frame and puzzle pieces (see image)
Step 2: Cut-Out Design
Simply cut-out the puzzle frame and pieces using a saw. I used a bandsaw, a coping saw or scroll saw will work just the same.
Step 3: Build Frame
Now glue and clamp the outer MDF frame to your plywood base.
Step 4: Paint the Puzzle Parts
Select seven bright colours and paint each individual piece.
Step 5: Yep the Sanding Stage
Now everything is dry, start sanding.
Sand the frame so it's flush, you could even round the corners (see image)
I also sanded the painted pieces to give it a rustic, well loved, well played look. (optional)
Step 6: Complete Puzzle
Now for the real tricky part. Complete the puzzle by making all the pieces fit.
