Etsy Listing - Nosy the Dragon Unfinished Free Standing Wooden Toy Dragon Puzzle

Nosy the Dragon an unfinished free standing wooden toy puzzle cut from 1.5 inch thick southern yellow pine.

Height = 7.5 inches
Legenth = 6 inches
Thickness = 1.5 inches

I cut this version of Nosy the Dragonfrom a piece of southern yellow pine 2x12 I had left over from a Toddler Rocking Pony I made for my grandson Odin. I think southern yellow pine is difficult to cut. The combination of very hard and very soft grain mens you have to cut slow and careful with sharp blades to get acceptable cuts. I used two blades on this one and probably should have used three.

I cut this with a #5 skip tooth blade. I could have used a larger blade and cut it faster but I have sanding these and and cutting slow with a fine blade can save a lot of sanding. Also when using a fast cutting blade when something goes wrong it goes wrong really fast. You can ruin a piece in a big hurry.

Even before it was sanded the pieces worked well. To test the puzzle pieces for proper fit and squareness I slide them together and out the other side in both directions. If the puzzle pieces are bad out of square they will get stuck. It doesn't need to be out of square much to when the puzzle is thick. If it is just tight you might be able to fix it with a little careful sanding. You can't sand sand much or the puzzle will be ruined. If they get stuck it goes in the trash.
