GUEST BOOK PUZZLE (for Wedding, Anniversary, etc.)
HAND CUT Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle
9.5" X 16" (25-28 pieces)

~ Note: Photos show various size puzzles. Yours will be proportioned similarly. In some photos pieces have been "pulled apart" so cutting style can be seen better. Top photo shows "random cut" while bottom photo shows "grid cut." (your choice) ~ Click on the photos to enlarge and see them in more detail. ~

I make many types and sizes of customized puzzles. See my Shop for more!

MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 4-10 weeks. Production time varies, depending on my backlog. See my shop announcement (link above) for current estimate. Hand cut one piece at a time with my scroll saw from 5-ply wood 1/4" thick. Cut freehand so no two are ever exactly alike.

RUSH FEE
Contact me if you need it sooner. If I am able to accept a rush order by your deadline, I will set up a custom listing for you with rush fee included.

PLAIN WOOD
The price for this listing is for a plain wood rectangular puzzle with no personalization. It is unfinished on both sides and is paintable and stainable. It has been sanded smoothly on both sides and comes ready to use.

GUEST BOOK
This puzzle has been designed to be used as a guest book puzzle for a wedding, anniversary or other occasion. A fun guest book alternative to the traditional sign in book. Guests can sign the pieces with their names or a message. Some pieces have been purposely cut smaller for those who will only sign their names, while others are cut larger for those who want to write more. But it can have many other uses as well. If you have another project in mind, let me know your intended purpose and I can work with you to come up with a unique puzzle that will meet your needs!

PENS
I've done extensive testing of dozens of types of writing instruments from numerous makers. I now stock over 40 colors in 4 different brands of pens! You can select your choices after purchase. I include at least 2 pens with your purchase. For larger sized puzzles, I include 1 pen per 25-30 pieces.

SCRAP WOOD PIECES for TESTING
Usually from the same board your puzzle is cut from, I will save some of the scrap pieces left over so that when you receive your puzzle you will also get some scraps from the same board. These will be useful to test out your pens or paints. These pieces will be sanded smoothly like the puzzle so that you can have fun writing as your guests would!

REMOVABLE STICKER SHEET
I also include a printed "sign other side" sticker sheet (or a partial sheet, if your puzzle is small) that you can cut out & apply to the back of each piece. Its use is optional, but can be essential if you want to keep all the signatures only on the front side. It removes easily without worry of sticker residue damage.

CUTTING STYLE
I cut with various types of knobs, hearts and triplets (as shown in photos) to make the puzzle extra unique and one of a kind! It also makes it easier to solve when it comes time to put it together again! But at request I can make the puzzle more difficult to solve by making all the pieces connect in a similar way (all heart shaped knobs or regular knobs for example.) Custom requests are always welcome.

Also notice the 2 types of cuts shown in the photos. I can either "random cut" (shown in the top 2 photos) or "grid cut" (shown in last photo.) In "grid cut," the cutting lines are fairly straight in rows but still can include a variety of shapes and sizes. I will ask your preference after you order, or before we set up a custom listing.

CUSTOMIZATION
For an extra fee, I can personalize the puzzle with sculpted dropouts as shown. Dropouts are parts of the puzzle that have been carefully cut out and discarded in order to achieve a visual effect. Because there are no physical pieces that make up the dropout, it is essentially a void or “hole” in the puzzle. I can add names, dates, etc. Price varies depending on how much wording you request. Please contact me for details.

FONT
When I cut names or dates into the puzzle there are many options available for size, spacing, and location as well as the font itself. I have dozens of fonts to choose from and you can select a favorite. You will get to see how the puzzle will look before I actually cut it.

PROOF
Before cutting, I show you an image of my template (if personalization is requested) for you to confirm placement of font and correct info. After your approval, I cut the puzzle and I can even show you a photo of your completed puzzle before mailing it out. I want you to be 100% completely satisfied with your puzzle. There will be time for alterations or a change of mind right up until the moment I start cutting.

SHAPE PUZZLE
If you don't want a rectangle, but instead want your puzzle in the shape of a heart, oval, outline of state or any other special shape, just let me know! For an extra fee I can tailor your puzzle to your specifications and set up a custom listing just for you.

PIECE COUNT
Piece count should be approx 70% of guests, but anywhere within 60-80% is acceptable. You don't need a piece for every guest because you might end up with too many blanks later. Some people may not show up, may not sign, or will sign as couples. Parents may sign for their young children, etc. It may depend on your particular situation, but if in doubt, use 70% as your guide. Also keep in mind that the back of the puzzle is similar to the front, and is also signable if needed. Before ordering, you may contact me with your guest count to get my recommendation.

Before I cut, I like to know how many pieces you want in the puzzle, and if you would like those pieces to be a variety of sizes (some big, some small) or whether you want them all big. Then we can find the size puzzle that best suits your needs. By default, I like to put in some larger and some smaller sized pieces for variety and also because guests can choose which piece they want to sign, depending on how much they want to say. If you want your puzzle to have all big pieces or even oversized pieces, I can do that, but need to know ahead of time as we may have to move up a size in dimension.

CONTACT ME
I prefer to work out all the details beforehand (in messages) and then set up a custom/reserved listing for you to purchase with the details of your particular puzzle. Some of the things I like to know are: piece count, dimension, personalization, location of names or date (centered or in corners), which font you prefer (I let you choose from a long list with sample images), your deadline, your zip code or country (so I can get shipping fees right), what color pens you prefer. Send me a message anytime to get started!

SHIPS ASSEMBLED
For your convenience, the puzzle will come assembled (or partially assembled; large puzzles may come in 2 halves), stretch wrapped onto a cardboard backing. I do not provide a box.

SHIPPING
I ship worldwide, and combine items to save in shipping. Shipping quote is my best estimate.

SPECIAL REQUESTS
Don't see what you want here? Please write and ask. The options are endless, and I can make the puzzle in many customized dimensions to have as few or as many pieces as you need.
