I was at a local bookstore and saw some wooden puzzles on my way out and the Tangram Hexiamond puzzle caught my eye. Each piece can be made of up 6 equilateral triangles, and consists of 12 pieces all unique with their own names. The bar, crook, crown, sphinx, snake, yacht, chevron, signpost, lobster, hook, hexagon, and butterfly. After drawing the shapes I looked for repetitive shapes that would simplify the process. In making this…


This has to be one of my favorite things to look at. I love how Walnut has so much character.

This puzzle is actually very simple to make.

Starting off I took some stock that had a number of ugly checks and cracks down the length. After processing the wood I marked my first piece to get an estimate for now long each piece would be.
