This is a puzzle and a way for children to start to understand fractions. This is a very simple project to make, but the angles need to be precise to fit together well. This is why I chose to use the laser cutter for this project.

You would also be able to cut out the pieces by hand by tracing the shapes onto a piece of wood and using a bandsaw to carefully cut them out.

Step 1: Materials and Tools


YuKonstruct has a Epilog 60 watt laser cutter -- the main tool for this project.

I used CorelDRAW to make my pattern, which is attached here if you'd like to use the same design.


• 8.5" by 32" piece of 0.25" thin piece of plywood
• Sandpaper
• Acrylic paints and paintbrush
