GUEST BOOK PUZZLE (for Wedding, Anniversary, Family Reunion, etc.)
HAND CUT Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle
cut into a Leafy Tree (Pine Tree available at request)
(25 pieces) approx 13" high X 16" wide

My puzzle guest books are handcrafted with care, cut one piece at a time and can be personalized for your special event! While many people frame the signed guest book for a unique memento & conversation piece, my puzzles are built to be played with! I use top quality materials so that you and your family may enjoy working your wooden jigsaw puzzle for decades to come!

~ PERSONALIZATION OPTIONAL ~ (names & date sculpted dropouts)
Choose either plain (uncustomized) OR customized tree for extra fee.

I make many types & sizes of personalized jigsaw puzzles including photo or artwork puzzles, trees, initials, states or countries + much more!

MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 4-10 weeks. Production time varies, depending on 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.

PAYMENT PLAN
If needed I offer a payment plan of half down with the balance & shipping due when puzzle is complete. To get started, send me a message & let me know which puzzle you are interested in.

GUEST BOOK
This puzzle has been designed to be used as a guest book for a wedding, anniversary, birthday, baby shower, family reunion, graduation, retirement party or other occasion. A fun guest book alternative to the traditional sign in book. Guests sign the pieces with their names or a message! If you have a custom project in mind, I can turn your vision into a unique personalized wooden jigsaw puzzle you will be proud to own or gift to someone special!

PLAIN WOOD
This puzzle is made with 1/4" 5-ply wood. It is unfinished and is paintable & stainable. I select the best looking side to be the front but the back of the puzzle is also usable. Both sides are sanded finely for a smooth writing surface. Sawdust is removed, one piece at a time, and the pieces put back together so that the puzzle arrives clean & ready to use at your special event!

PIECE COUNT (25 signable pieces)
I recommend a piece count between 50% and 70% of your expected guest count. Unless you are using them as seating assignments, you don't need one for every guest because you might end with too many blanks. Some people may not show up or may not sign. Couples (or families) may sign as one. If in doubt, choose a piece count approximately 60% of guests. (To calculate this number multiply 0.6 by the number of guests you expect to attend.)

If you end up with unsigned pieces, here are a few ideas: 1) Send them to people who couldn't attend to sign & mail back to you 2) Decorative them yourself or write down notes you wish to remember about your event 3) Save them for anniversaries to write something notable that occurred during the past year (or record a future goal you are working toward)

This puzzle has 25 signable pieces. I can make a similar puzzle in many different sizes. If you need more (or less) pieces in your tree, use the link below to see the complete range of options from low to high.

PIECE SIZE
Pieces vary in size. I cut pieces this way so that guests can choose which piece they want to sign, depending on how much they want to say. Some people might only sign their names while others want to write a lot more. The majority of pieces should be roomy enough for messages.

CUTTING STYLE
My guest book trees are cut in Random Cut. (Let me know if you want Grid Cut instead.) I also cut with various types of knobs to make the puzzle extra unique and one of a kind! It also makes it easier to solve. 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.)

CUSTOMIZATION (OPTIONAL, extra fee applies)
If you choose the customization option, I will personalize your puzzle in the font of your choice with your names and wedding date or your initials + date inside a heart shaped piece. Custom requests welcome! Let me know what I can do to make your tree a unique memento of your special day!

SCULPTED DROPOUTS (CUTOUTS)
The names I carve into the puzzle are "sculpted dropouts" also referred to as "cutouts." These are parts of the puzzle that have been custom designed, carefully cut out by hand 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.

FIGURE PIECES (OPTIONAL, extra fee applies)
For an extra fee, I can add special figure pieces (figurals) to your puzzle. These are small, decorative puzzle pieces in addition to the larger "signable" pieces your guests will write on. Figurals make your puzzle even more personalized, interesting, & collectible! Figurals may represent your pet, a hobby, the state you live in, and so much more! Price varies. Send me a list & I'll give you a quote.

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. After order, I will send you my list of fonts to choose from (currently 37) and you can select a favorite. When I design the template for your puzzle, you will see this pattern to approve or advise me as needed before I begin.

PROOF/TEMPLATE
It is important for me to personalize your puzzle just as you envision it! Before cutting, I will send you an image of my template to make sure I have correctly placed & punctuated the information you have given me. This pattern can be repositioned or resized as needed. I can modify the size, spacing or location of your text as well as stroke width (boldness) of the font. After your approval, I cut the puzzle and send you a photo when finished!

2 PENS INCLUDED!
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. 2 pens come with this size puzzle. Additional pens available at cost.

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. It 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.

SHAPED PUZZLE
The price includes a shaped outline of a leafy tree but I can also make a pine tree or other shapes including hearts, states or countries, animals, and more. Contact me for a quote if you have an idea for a unique custom shape.

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! Shipping quote is my best estimate.
