Make European geography interesting and beautiful with this one of a kind laser cut puzzle made from sturdy birch plywood.

Each of the 39 pieces is a country and has a small magnet glued to its back to allow it to live in a vertical world.

The puzzle looks great on your refrigerator or another magnetically receptive surface.

It's made from a super-detailed map file and contains all the European countries, even including the tiny ones (Andorra, Luxembourg, San Marino, Vatican City, Liechtenstein). These tiny countries are etched onto larger adjoining ones so they don't get lost! Sardinia, Sicily and Corsica are the smallest islands represented. It's great for learning but some pieces are somewhat delicate and may not be best for little kids.

The capital cities are marked by an etched star on the fronts and the country's two letter abbreviations are etched on the backs.

This puzzle features what I call a discontinuous grain pattern, meaning that the grain direction is unique for every piece. At the scale of the puzzle the grain lines almost look geological or even agricultural and their individuality gives each country an identity.
