This puzzle was perfect in sharing my love for motorcycles with my grand son. Built to last. A small challenge for the 2 year old and still fun to pretend roll on the floor. Delivery was on time

About

Berkshire Bowls: Wood Puzzles and More

Welcome to the Berkshire Bowls shop. My name is Scott and I started Berkshire Bowls in the fall of 2010. I have actually been in the technology field for several years and have run my own sports game site since 2001. In the fall of 2010, I hatched the idea for Berkshire Bowls.

Berkshire Bowls originally started as a hand turned wood bowl business. I think that ultimately it wasn’t as much about bowls as it was about allowing my creativity to flow. One of my favorite parts of the hand turned pieces I make is scouring the woods looking for just the right tree limb or stump to make something spectacular. I always use wood from a tree that has been taken down for other reasons. Truth be told, it isn’t as much to be eco-friendly as it is that I am a little scared of felling a tree. Either way, it is an earth friendly method to bring spectacular wood pieces to the shop.

What started with bowls, quickly branched out to boxes (or stash boxes as they are sometimes known), wine glasses, pens, bottle stoppers and more. Each has its own unique nuances in turning. They also each have their own style possibilities and designs.

In 2011, while browsing a top classified site, I came across a great piece of machinery for sale. Never one to pass up a good deal on power tools, I picked it up. Faced with the challenge of trying to find something fun to make with the new tool, I started dabbling in wood puzzles. Although I don’t collect the wood for the puzzles in the forest, all of the puzzle designs are my own (I know, there are only so many ways you can make a puzzle of Texas, right? Ok, so, the outlines aside from the states are mine.). A new shop favorite was born, the wood puzzle. Since the first puzzle I made (a 9 to 11 piece rocket ship out of MDF board) I have been developing new pieces, with different highlights and media. Whether the puzzles are painted, wood burned, natural or some combination, I am always trying to come up with fun puzzles for children and adults alike.

As the shop continues to grow, so, too, does my creative desire. I am always working on new ideas, new pieces and new ways to bring Berkshire Bowls to the public.
