  • Noah's Arc Puzzle

    Can you please confirm the width of the wood. Is it suppose to be 1" because each puzzle requires to be split in two making them quite thin. Thanks alot

    Without posting the actual pattern can you tell us which pattern you are referring too? There are several Noah's arc patterns out there.

      I believe it's the Noah's Ark Puzzle in Dave Peterson's "Animal Puzzles" Book. I used 7/8" Cherry. The pieces are just about right when cut in two. The problem I had was getting the cherry pieces to be darker than the background, even though I stained them with Minwax cherry stain. They were essentially the same color. I could not find the stain he mentioned in the book

          The thickness (not width) of the wood I think yes, 1 inch thickness. It really is not that critical though, 1 1/8th thickness, or 7/8" would work just as well. The more important thing is slicing the animals in half so that the two animals are as close as possible to being of equal thickness.

            That is a FINE looking puzzle. I take it the 2 x 2 animals are 1 animal cut in half. That would be some 'fine' cutting - especially with a curly cue tail.

              I did two of these, different sizes, and tried to split the animals on one, and on the third to last animal - giraffe - one leg split off. Nothing to back thin pieces, so haven't done it to the other.

              Has anybody else experienced this?

                    Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                    Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
