The first two pieces have two notches 1/2 inch in diameter perpendicular to each other as seen in the picture. The last piece has two cuts also perpendicular to each other but are only 1/4 inches from each other. Once everything has been cut you can use your knife (or sandpaper) to clean up the slots and make it to where the puzzle pieces fit into each other nice and snug.
