Pallet Bear "Puzzle" Sign

I am pretty sure puzzle maker is not a future title I will hold.  But, I did have fun making this bear "puzzle" sign from pallet wood.

I traced the bear on the three pieces of pallet wood and then cut it out using a handheld jigsaw. I made sure to collect each piece as I cut it and put them all in a box so it wouldn't get lost with the other workshop scraps.

I then glued and nailed the outside pieces to a piece of plywood.  I stain the bear pieces and glued and nailed them into place.

This was a fun piece to make.  The turns were a challenge with the jigsaw, but I plan on trying different shapes soon!

  1. That is so cute. It doesn't even look like pallet wood anymore. If you end up doing a lot of puzzles you may want to purchase a tabletop scroll saw...it is sooooo easy to use and perfect for puzzles.

  2. I like it. I have a laser light jigsaw that scrolls but it makes me nervous on the tight turns. Table top scroll saw sounds interesting. If I had the space!
