Mark has created a special format using hexagonal "worms" to make difficult puzzles, staying away from traditional jigsaw shapes. Mark cuts lasercut puzzles from 1/8-inch wooden hardboard. Puzzles larger than 8x10 are digitally printed first. He can cut puzzles as large as 17x23 inches.

Typical lasercut wood pricing is...
8x10 jigsaw up to 100 pieces $25,
8x10 in a tray with about 50-60 tetris-shaped pieces $30
11x17 jigsaw up to 200 pieces $30
11x17 in a tray $35
11x17 with 250-300 hexagonal worms $40
24x18 jigsaw $80

Lasercut Cardboard puzzles
11x17 jigsaw $25

Tray puzzles are great ice breakers for your coffee table to keep guests busy.

Puzzles in trays are great entertainment for guests. Leave on your coffee table.

Mark has a proprietary process for printing, sealing and lasercutting quality puzzles from wooden hardboard. Puzzles can have regular jigsaw shapes, but more complicated hexagonal worms are our unique puzzle style. Puzzles can have straight edges or can follow the outlines of any object. Pieces shaped as objects, animals and letters can be embedded into puzzles.

Epic Puzzles

Request a special puzzle to be made from one of these epic images. Although my maximum size is usually about 24x18 with 1,000 hexagonal worm pieces, it is possible to lasercut larger puzzles depending on the image. For example, I have a six-foot mummy sarcophagus puzzle.

My daughter received the Animalloys and Animal Connections games for from Brainy Games for her 3rd birthday and they are both awesome!
The Animalloys tiles are perfect for use on an easel whiteboard but can also be used on a baking sheet. My daughter really enjoys trying to figure out how to put the animals together but she also thinks it's hilarious to mix up different heads, bodies, and tails and create "new" animals. The animals are also quite interesting and different with realistic looking pictures. She is learning new animals that she hasn’t seen before.

The Animal Connections game is great for children to learn various animal characteristics. With my help, my daughter is learning to make various connections between animals and word descriptors and group animals by similar attributes. I think this game is a great learning tool that will grow will her as she learns to read. The tiles for this game also came in a beautiful wooden box! I am glad we received these games as a gift and highly recommend them!
