    Hi Ryan Welcome aboard
    I am sure someone here can find a puzzle or two for such a good cause.

      Here is a link for some puzzles closer to your side of the world.
      They are not patterns but perhaps you can get some there or at least some ideas.

      There is also a good site on some Burr style puzzles http://pwdbp.com/?action=5364.showPerson

      Some nice examples here too http://www.arriveegallery.com/Puzzles.asp

        Ryan.....

        Here's a simple interlocking puzzle I posted a few years ago. A little block of wood (slightly less than a 2 x 4) produced 11 pieces of furniture. Here is a picture of the completed puzzle and its pieces.



        If you'd like to see a breakdown of the pieces as they are cut, check out the photos by scrolling dopwn in one of my Picture Trail sites, the link to which is below. Questions? Email me at [email protected]

            Dale, I found one of these at the gift store at Redwood Natl. Park. It was pretty rough and made from redwood, of course, so it was rather soft and brittle. I bought it, took it home, studied it, and cut my own. Simple to do and the kids like them.

            Good luck Ryan....hope you found some good ideas.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
