Simple Puzzles for Toddlers - Part 3

When making tray puzzles, I like to make the tray backs from tempered hardboard. It's flat cheap and sturdy enough to do the job. This is the last I have been able to find locally that is smooth on both sides so I may be looking for another material for my puzzle tray backs.

I always cut the backs for my puzzle trays a little larger than the puzzle and then later trim and them to size. This makes it much easier the glue up.

I cut this batch on my scroll saw. I didn't have a factory edge to run against the bandsaw or table saw fence and since they were oversized intentionally, there was not any reason to have a perfect edge.
