I'm pleased to present: Africa! This is a brand-new puzzle and it turned out very well. It even includes the world's newest country: South Sudan.

--------------------+---------------------

Make Africa geography fun and beautiful with this laser cut map puzzle made from reclaimed, old growth, long leaf pine.

It looks beautiful on your refrigerator or other magnetically receptive surface.

Each of the 36 pieces is a country and has a small magnet glued to its back to allow it to live in a vertical world. Etched onto the pieces' fronts are stars representing the capitals of each country. Etched onto the backs are the country names. A number of the smaller countries are etched onto larger neighboring ones.

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

As the largest, Madagascar is the only island represented.

The wood is hard, old-growth pine stolen from the termites in a collapsing barn along the banks of the Colorado River just outside of Austin, TX. It's got beautiful colors, patterns, aroma and history.

A couple of the pieces are delicate and may not be best for little kids.
