Most people think of jigsaw puzzles as the die-cut, cardboard puzzles that are readily available in the market today. Before the advent of cardboard puzzles, almost all jigsaw puzzles were made of real wood and cut by hand.
Jigsaw puzzle collectors prize old wooden jigsaw puzzles for their intricacy, craftsmanship, and the “heft” of the pieces. For the serious jigsaw puzzler, there is nothing quite as satisfying as plunking a wooden piece into place.
Liberty Jigsaw Puzzles are created with a base of quarter inch maple plywood and the finest archival paper and inks. No two pieces in any puzzle are alike, and each puzzle features scores of intricate, charming whimsy pieces. Manufactured in Boulder, CO, each puzzle is mounted onto the wood then laser-cut to the puzzle design. Plywood is generally favored by wood jigsaw puzzle makers because the separate plies and glue give the panel strength. A solid wooden panel will break or warp much more easily than plywood of the same thickness.
