How to Make a Puzzle Cut Shelf With Scott Shaeffer

Introduction: How to Make a Puzzle Cut Shelf With Scott Shaeffer

About: Lone rustic furniture builder in Denver, Colorado. I use only standing-dead aspen and pine that grows right here in the Rocky Mountains!

Scott of San Juan Carpentry shows you (in a time-lapsed video) how to make a "puzzle cut" shelf. This technique is rarely seen in the log furniture market so after you learn how to do it, don't tell anyone else!

    That tool is called a contour gauge. You can find it at most hardware stores or online. Thanks!
