Our wooden jigsaw puzzles are 100% handcrafted. They are made using 1/4 inch MDF (medium density fiberboard)—a non-splintering composite board that makes a durable heirloom quality puzzle at a reasonable cost.
We commission the artwork to our illustrator/artists to meet our specifications. We wanted beautiful art and racial diversity, that was faithful to scripture.
The completed artwork is copied, trimmed and adhered to the MDF board using a dry mount heat process. A light topcoat is applied to protect the finish.We cut all our puzzles individually creating a unique work of art for your child.
The materials used in making a Peace Puzzle are nontoxic and conform to standards appropriate for use by children.
Here is the scroll saw power tool that is used to make puzzle pieces. It has a very thin blade that allows for intricate cuts. The blade moves up and down at a very high speed. That snaky-looking thing is a blower–it removes the sawdust as we cut. Knobs and notches are made by spinning the board as it cuts. We cut free-hand, which is why every puzzle is unique. We can adjust cutting to maximize the beauty of the art.
We also offer custom cut puzzles. If you see a puzzle, but want a different number of pieces, please contact us with your request. All puzzles can be made in 9, 20 or 30 pieces. We will also consider discounts for volume orders of puzzles.
Each puzzle is crafted by hand. Please allow 1 to 4 weeks for delivery for custom orders.
