  • The Classical Wooden Knot Puzzle

    This puzzle has been around for years. I wouldn't be surprised if the first one was made by Noah, though the rumors of a certain Nazarene carpenter making them are probably false. But - however old the puzzle may be, it's always new to someone. They're easy to make and fun to watch folks figure them out, even tose who have seen them before.

    I sent my Christmas ornaments out this year as puzzles made from SpectraPly. All you have to do is add a hanger and they make nice ornaments.

    Anyway - here are patterns for 3/8" knots, 1/2 inch knots, and 3/4" knots. Alright, I included the instructions for them, too.

    Enjoy --

      Very nice Tony and great instructions. Surprisingly I haven't seen this puzzle before.

      Does this make me younger than the image I see in the mirror?

            Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

            Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

            Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

            we had to have 2 trees taken down over the weekend. As you can see by the centers, Mother Nature was close to dropping them on our house, shed and truck. When he made the first cut the one directly behind our bedroom, it hit the ground and exploded. The one behind the shed was 100’ feet tall and had...
